They say that all good things must come to an end, and it looks like the time has come to mark the end of Brick Squad. It has already been a tumultuous year for the label and movement, and today seems to be the culmination of months of attacks and spontaneous Twitter announcements. And of course, the rift amongst members of Brick Squad, most notably between Gucci Mane and Waka Flocka Flame, was aired out publicly using social media.
Things heated up when Gucci distanced himself from the label he created and went on to say "fuck Bricksquad" early this morning. Waka and Gucci then went on to trade indirect shots at one another going at each other's street credibility. Soon enough, Waka's cousin Frenchie jumped into the fray, standing on Waka's side. In the afternoon, things took a sudden turn when Wooh Da Kid, another Waka affiliate, decided to attack OJ Da Juiceman while indirectly taking shots at Gucci.
Gucci returned to Twitter in the evening to offer some more of his thoughts, but this then led into a heated back-and-forth between him and Frenchie, who accused him of stealing money from him and Waka, money that was owed when Gucci signed them to a deal to Warner through the Brick Squad imprint. Gucci's rebuttal was that the money had been taken by his then-manager, Debra Antney, who also happens to be Waka's mother (and by extension, Frenchie's aunt). Gucci claimed that Antney had also stolen money from OJ and even French Montana, another one of her clients at one point.
But what appears to be the real catalyst of this Twitter skirmish amongst former friends and business partners is the death of Brick Squad artist Slim Dunkin. The man accused of Dunkin's death, rapper Young Vito, was acquitted of the murder charge back in February of this year. It seems as though Gucci is now being accused of having paid for Vito's attorney. While it is still unclear as to what the source of this allegation is, Gucci vehemently denies having supported Vito.
It is unclear where things go from here. Waka has claimed in the past that he has a stake in the Brick Squad 1017 label. He also owns a subsidiary called Brick Squad Monopoly. Meanwhile, buzzing artists such as Chief Keef, Young Scooter, and Young Thug are all affected by these events, as all three are supposedly signed to Brick Squad 1017. None of them have commented on the issue; Scooter remains incarcerated.
Expect diss records to fly, with the first salvo coming from Frenchie.
