50 Cent has officially given his opinion on last year's Verzuz battle between Jeezy and Gucci Mane, he calls the competition nothing else but an opportunity for Jeezy to promote his album. Jeezy's 'The Recession 2,' dropped last year on Nov. 20, just a day after the Verzuz battle.
The rapper also spoke on the controversy from the Verzuz Battle, where Gucci said, "You're Smoking on Pookie Loc." Pookie Loc was an affiliate of Jeezy, who was allegedly killed in self-defense by Gucci Mane. "I think that was desperation on Jeezy’s part trying to sell a record," Fif said and continued, "The record didn't sell. But I think that's what that was leading up to it because they looked at how much a catalog would sell and how much exposure you'll have ’cause he was releasing a record at that point. Other than that, I don't know why you would do that ’cause Gucci said, ‘You’re smoking on Pookie Loc.'" Watch it down below at the 11:40-mark.
