Just because Gucci Mane agreed to face Jeezy in a Verzuz battle doesn’t mean their bad blood has subsided.

On Tuesday (November 17), LaFlare decided to fan the flames via Instagram by taunting Jeezy with a haunting reminder death has come between them in the past.

“Gucci Mane: go dig up your old partner nigga I bet he can’t he say shit,” the meme read, butchering the lyrics to Gucci’s 2013 Jeezy diss song, “Truth.”

The meme also included a man attempting to dive for his freedom in a courtroom, indicating Jeezy would be mum about the situation if pressed.

On May 10, 2005, a then relatively unknown Gucci Mane was jumped inside a house in Decatur, Georgia. After firing back at the attackers, an associate of Jeezy, Pookie Loc, was shot and killed and his body was later found buried by a local middle school.



After turning himself in and being charged with murder, Gucci claimed self-defense and his murder case was dropped in January 2006 due to insufficient evidence. “Icy,” the Atlanta rap legends only collaboration, was released in a month prior to the fatal shooting.

In a December 2019 interview with Charlamagne Tha God, Gucci expressed no remorse for the killing and even doubled down on his actions.

“[Pookie Loc] needed to be in the ground,” Gucci Mane said coldly. “I put his ass where he supposed to be. He tried me. If somebody comes he and try to kill you, yeah you know it’s self-defense … you gotta do what you gotta do.”



Gucci Mane vs. Jeezy is poised to be the biggest Verzuz battle yet. It will broadcast simultaneously on Instagram and Apple Music on Thursday (November 19) at 8 p.m. EST and 5 p.m PST.
