Gucci Mane and 21 Savage didn't think working with Jake Paul was a good look.
Over the past several months, YouTuber Jake Paul has been trying to infiltrate hip hop as best as he can. He turned heads when he posted a video in the studio with Gucci Mane a few months back, making many ask why GuWop would entertain that idea. However, Gucci Mane is clearly someone who's about his business more than anything so it could only be assumed their was a bag involved. Now, reports are coming in about how the remix to Jake Paul's "It's Everyday Bro" with Gucci Mane came about.
In a recent report from KEEMSTAR Twitter page it said Gucci Mane allegedly charged Jake Paul $250,000 for the verse on "It's Everyday Bro" remix and wouldn't do the verse otherwise. The outlet tweeted a screenshot of a conversation they had with one of their reliable source.
"Jake Paul had to pay Gucci mane $250,000 just to do a feature with him. Otherwise he wouldn't do it. Dude he has to pay people to be friends with him and to do features, 21 [Savage] was going to do one with [RiceGum] for free. Also 21 Savage dropped a Merch deal with Jake because it's a bad name for 21s name"
Aside from Gucci Mane, he recently grabbed 21 Savage for a cringeworthy episode of his own version of "Carpool Karaoke." Another moment that drew questions from the hip hop community. But much like Gucci Mane, who 21 has professed his appreciation for, was also in it for the business side of things. However, it makes sense that he'd withdraw from working with Jake Paul considering the whole "Savage" part of his brand would probably deter if he'd work with Paul.
Now that he allegedly paid that much money for the feature with Gucci, he recently dropped off the video for "It's Everyday Bro" with Gucci Mane and it's been working well for him. The video dropped only two days a go and has racked up 6.8 million views thusfar. In addition to that, it's on YouTube's trending list at number 4.
It was also rumored that he'd land a record deal with Atlantic. It's not unbelievable by any means considering they've signed a slew of individuals who've gone viral such as Danielle Bregoli a.k.a Bhad Bhabie and Matt Ox.
