Joe Budden is among those who has noticed that if Gucci Mane signs an artist, that artist will soon be in jail, dead or transgendered.

“ We have never seen this many shootings, stabbings, clique beef, arrests, RICOs. I have never seen it in Hip Hop," Budden said earlier this year. "That conversation runs concurrent with, for me and the rest of the musicians, the death of the A&R. The death of musicianship. Those are together for me. “So when I say Gucci Mane’s scouting needs to be under examination, it’s because this is now, what? 8, 9, 10? I don’t know. A whole roster that is just suffering from the different strokes curse, and I don’t think it’s a coincidence anymore. I think it shouldn't matter that one of them made make a good song and it made however many millions."

Gucci addressed that criticism on The Morning Hustle.

“I think that’s like unfair, y’know what I’m saying, for him to say that, but I guess he’s entitled to his opinion. But to me, who else gonna give them a chance, y’know what I’m saying," he said about Joe saying he's being irresponsible with his signings.  "Like, I’m not tryin’ to sign the guys who don’t need no help. I’m signing the guys who don’t nobody wanna sign. Who saying like, ‘Ooh, you got a criminal record, we gonna stay away from you.'  Them the guys I’m giving a chance. I signed one guy who was in jail and bonded him out of jail, and he'd been having a great career since then.  But people don't tell those stories. And if f they would have run my background and my criminal shit, I won’t have had no deal, you feel what I’m saying? So my whole thing is, I wanna help ...  I'm telling them to not get in trouble ... I'm leading by example."

What do you think?
