50 Cent weighed in on the Jeezy Verzuz Gucci Mane Verzuz battle — he says the only reason Jeezy participated was because he was desperate to sell records.
“The reason why — the Verzuz part, to me, because of how it came, I looked at it like — Verzuz showed up and was the hottest thing. I was paying attention to it and watching it like everybody else. This is when D-Nice is like, the only DJ on the planet, right?” he told The Morning Hustle. “This is like, COVID, this is crazy, what are we doing, we’re just looking and trying to figure out what we’re doing next.”
“Soon as we come back outside I’m like, I don’t know why we’re still doing [Verzuz]. I think when they did the Jeezy, Gucci Mane [Verzuz], I think that that was desperation on Jeezy’s part trying to sell a record.”

He said he thinks Jeezy’s record flopped anyway.
“But I think that’s what that was leading up to it because they looked at how much a catalog would sell and how much exposure you’ll have ’cause he was releasing a record at that point. Other than that, I don’t know why you would do that.”
