By now we all know that Gucci Mane is not afraid to speak on any subject at any time. In a new interview with Atlanta's Hot 107.9, the 1017 Brick Squad boss takes aim at French Montana, Nicki Minaj and Yo Gotti.
At one point Nicki was managed by Waka Flocka's mom, Deb Antney. Gucci feels like the camp played a big part in her becoming a success. He doesn't think Nicki appreciates what was done for her.
"It's like when she came to Atlanta she gave me a shout out and said I helped her in her career," Gucci said of Nicki. "But at the end of the day I just think you keep it real with somebody you can't expect them to keep it real with you. I told you man in this industry people wanna be famous and forget the people that helped them get to where they at. I tip my hat to Nicki for being a hard worker, but at the same time she know she ain't keep it real."
Another artist Gucci took issue with was French Montana. French at one point was riding with Brick Squad heavy. He and Waka Flocka recorded the mixtape Lock Out together as well as the songs "Move Tha Cane" and "Choppa Choppa Down." Those collaborations seemed to stop when French aligned himself with Rick Ross and Diddy.
"French Montana know he didn't keep it real," Gucci said. "My thing is I ain't going out of my way to tell somebody to act real or they fake or they lame because that ain't got nothing to do with me. But when they start spilling into my business or my affairs I'm a vocal person, I usually speak on it."
Gucci saved his harshest criticism for Yo Gotti. He recently sent a shot Gotti's way on Twitter and explains why.
"I said Gotti was cool until he turned into a busta. So I wasn't saying that we wasn't even cool. I said we was cool until this point right here," Gucci explained, referring to a diss song he recently recorded. "My main problem with him is that he dropped his mixtape on 10/17 and tried to ride my wave like he was an artist of mine or we get some kind of money together. So I just felt like for an artist to drop their mixtape on 10/17, which is my label. All my label mates dropped their mixtape on 10/17. Why would you drop it on 10/17 and when I call you as my partna you say, 'oh I didn't know you were dropping a mixtape.' Now the whole world know I'm dropping this [Trap God] mixtape. I've been promoting this mixtape. Both me and you on the top of Worldstar. You with a freestyle and me with a video, but you say you unaware I got a mixtape and I got a banner that says it's coming out 10/17. So it just made me lose all respect for him instantly."
The Yo Gotti tape Gucci was referring to is the CM7: The World Is Yours tape. Gotti was going to drop it on October 17th, but after Gucci's Tweet he ended up releasing it on October 18th. By that point the damage had been done and at this point he and Gucci are no longer cool.
