Yesterday in an interview with MTV, Waka confirmed that he and Gucci Mane will no longer make music or do business together. Gucci and Waka traded barbs on Twitter two weeks ago, with Gucci writing that Waka had been "officially dropped off brick squad 1017" for being "disloyal" and Waka responding that Gucci should "SUCK A DICK." A Gucci rep quickly claimed Gucci's Twitter had been hacked, but onstage in New York this week, Waka stoked the fight's flames, revising the lyrics of a guest verse for Jim Jones' "848" and rapping, Fuck that nigga Gucci/ Free my nigga Boosie/ I swear to God my life is like a fucking movie.
"[We could function in a civil way] but it ain’t gonna never be no business ever in life, " Waka told MTV. "No music, nothing. I won't do no music with him, I don't want no business with him. I'll party with you, but I won't do no business with you. Cause I don’t feel nothing he say out his mouth. It ain’t real," he said. Waka claimed he was never disloyal to his former partner, and that Gucci's unfriendly tweet came as no surprise after an IRL confrontation. "I'm the loyalest person you could ever see…I took on a man's beef, risked my life, hung out the window, risked my freedom. I never backed in a corner. To my knowledge it can't be nothing but jealousy. Cause I never did something disloyal... That Twitter wasn’t hacked, because we had a conversation before that. Real aggressive words like, Niggas let's get up, let's do this…He bad vibe around me." Finally, Waka disputed Gucci's claim that he'd been "dropped" from Brick Squad, the company that partners with Atlantic Records to distribute Waka and Gucci music. "I own a percentage of Brick Squad 1017, 100% of Brick Squad Monopoly," Waka said. "You can't kick the boss out, it's impossible."
