ATLANTA, GA - OCTOBER 01: Young Jeezy and T.I. perform at the BET Hip Hop Awards 2011 at Boisfeuillet Jones Atlanta Civic Center on October 1, 2011 in Atlanta, Georgia.

T.I. and Jeezy recently sat down and had an intimate conversation regarding the possibility of reconciling with Gucci Mane, who both rappers have had beef with throughout their careers.”We can’t have this conversation without addressing the elephant in the room. There’s a third member of the Mount Rushmore of trap music that either one of us doesn’t mention or kind of speak to that much,” T.I. told Jeezy.

“Now, what do you think is necessary to bring that s— together if anything? And I understand that we’re dealing with somebody who’s temperamental themselves. Our s— that we got with us versus their s— that they got with them makes it extremely problematic but in the best case scenario how could that s— happen? To be honest with you that’s the biggest move for trap music in the near future.”

“I just feel like it gotta be on of them mafia backroom conversations. It has to really be a convo. What I’ve learned over the years is this s— big business,” Jeezy said. “That makes sense,” T.I. said. “People that went to Yale still do business with people that went to Havard. So it’s just one of those real convos, man. It’s been decades,” Jeezy continued.

“We’re talking about Gucci, by the way, for those of you that don’t know. To be honest with you, for real. I think cuz looked at me a certain way because I stand solid with you. I’m like, man, I don’t have nothing to do with that s— but f— it. That was always my position even though I tried to set my differences to the side and be cordial,” T.I. explained.

“That s— didn’t go far but I think for the people of trap music it’s hard. Let’s say for instance, even with the Trap Music Museum, I’m not gone do a Trap Music Museum and leave a n—- out. To me, that’s hate. So I’mma be inclusive and I’mma be honest. And I’m going to always speak from a place of logic. So, logically, is there ever a time where the three of us can walk out and say ‘Man, that s— dead?'”
