Young Jeezy beefin with DJ Drama
There has been lots of speculation about a beef between the two men who saw their popularity and career advancement go through the roof after the release of the 2005 mixtape, “Trap Or Die.”
“Drama just started acting like a bitch. Drama wanted to be Khaled, but he didn’t want to help nobody. He just changed, period. Look at his crew. The same niggas ain’t around him. You ain’t never been in no streets. I could never have no beef with a nigga like that. He’s a cornball. You made millions off my mixtapes, to the point where the fuckin’ feds scooped you up for bootlegging. I never even made the money he made off of Trap or Die or Tha Streets Iz Watchin, because they were selling and distributing them and making money.
I’m not hating. But we will never do a mixtape together. I didn’t charge that nigga for [contributing a verse to the song “5000 Ones,” on Drama’s official Atlantic Records debut]. But then when I need [a tape for one of my artists], and you want to charge me $20,000?… I’ll slap the shit out of Drama. He knows that. He wasn’t loyal. But me putting my hands on that man ain’t gonna make him respect what I’m saying. I’m just not gonna fuck with him anymore. ”
The new XXL issue is slated to hit newsstands next week.

- Man this is crazy…. I don’t know whats going on, all I know is its a proven fact that money ruins a whole lot when it comes to the music business. Worse part about all of this is that I loved the mixtapes Drama and Jeezy made, plus the success of their careers are a large result of those vary mixtapes. I don’t really take sides but this could very well be all Drama’s fault. I only say that because he also had/has beef with another premier artist who’s career skyrocketed after mixtapes with him, Lil Wayne (click here). Coincedence that the two artists who benefited most and contributed most in Drama’s career are the same two he is having problems with? You decide
