"Swizz called me and I was like, if I do [Verzuz], there's only one person I'd do it with. He was like, 'who?' I was like 'Gucci '. Reach out to him, let me know what's up," Jeezy told The Breakfast Club.  "Swizz hit back and said he respectfully declined. Cool. Done. Kept it moving, I was gone do it for the culture. We could have did it for the culture. Hung up the phone, three minutes later, that's when I seen my brother [T.I.'s] video calling me out. We could have done it for the culture. I'm in, it's whatever."

In 2005, Gucci Mane shot and killed Young Jeezy's artist Pookie Loc during an attempted home robbery.

Gucci and Jeezy had been beefing about their collaboration "Icy", which ended up on Gucci's album with no royalties to Jeezy.  In response, Jeezy had put a 10K bounty on Guwop's chain.  Gucci was charged with murder but got off on self-defense and the two feuded for years after.

Would the old non-clone Gucci turn down a Verzuz against Jeezy?
