Mic Geronimo Responds To Irv Gotti’s Drink Champs Comments: 'Don't Get Me Fucked Up'
In his response, the 'Shit's Real' rapper told the Murder Inc. head that his beats were 'trash.'
Mic Geronimo has responded to Irv Gotti’s incendiary comments made on Drink Champs.
The “Shit’s Real” MC was a guest on Drink Champs back in 2020, in which he detailed more about what led to the heavily speculated fall out between him and his one-time producer, Irv Gotti.
Irv Gotti met Mic Geronimo at a local high school talent show in Queens, New York in the 1990s, and was the production backbone behind his breakout hit “Shit’s Real” from his 1995 debut The Natural, as well as a posse cut titled “Time To Build” with a then unknown DMX and JAY-Z. The album briefly propelled Geronimo to Billboard stardom, which he maintained before his relationship with Gotti fizzled away, with rumored disagreements being the alleged cause.
Mic essentially said things with Gotti were tense from the jump, and that their “personalities clashed” shortly after meeting each other. While things were kosher starting off, their relations quickly took a turn when Mic felt during the recording process of his debut album The Natural that Gotti had been using him as a means to an end rather than genuinely investing in his career.
“Irv has an uncanny ability to let his ego, I hate to say it, take control of every motor function,” Mic told N.O.R.E. “I never forget the n-gga turned to me and said, ‘see? I should have just made you sign the paperwork’, and when he said that shit a jolt ran through my body.”
When Gotti appeared on Drink Champs on Saturday (August 6), he was asked to also address these alleged disputes, but merely added fuel to the fire.
“We back on Mic Geronimo?” Gotti said. “Fuck that bitch ass n-gga. I’m drunk but it’s really real. Fuck you n-gga. You thought I wasn’t the one? Guess what? I’m the one n-gga. I’m the fuckin one…I’m gonna make them fuckin’ hits that you gonna remember forever.”
Geronimo took to Instagram Live to respond to the disrespectful comments aired out by
