Gucci Mane recently opened his big mouth about Jay-Z being named MTV’s Hottest MC in the Game. Gucci was named Number 6 (which we think is generous) and he didn’t agree with that. Chuck D stopped by AllHipHop last week and added his two cents. In short: Gucci need be sittin down. “Jay-Z’s just getting started,” Chuck D said. “Gucci Mane, he’d be better off jumping in a swimming pool with a plugged in toaster.” He then went on to clarify and, because we agree with it whole-heartedly, here’s the statement in full:

“It’s my outside third party opinion. Gucci Mane can probably raps circles around my old ass …but er…not Jay-Z. Sorry. I’m pretty sure Gucci Mane is a fine young man, but as far as getting in the ring with Jay-Z in any RAP way…I don’t see it. Nothing personal. But

er… NO. Well, I’m sure that Gucci Mane is still looking for JAY-Z to respond. It’s what he wanted. He should. Again that’s the up and coming challenger throwing a egg at Floyd Mayweather. I’m just a fan of it all in the seats. Gucci Mane is fun and all but… Jay-Z is a martial artist with this s**t.”
