Young Jeezy Biography
“Before music I was just trying to survive out this motherfucker. I had other artists, some local cats off the street, but it didn’t work out,” explains the twenty-five year old Georgia native. “So I just decided to do it myself. Ain’t nobody gonna go as hard as you gonna go. I saw the bigger picture at the time. I have a way with words and I know how to hustle.”
Songs like the revealing “Let Me Talk To ‘Em” show Jeezy apologizing for many of the wrongs in his life and attempting to set the next generation straight about the dark side of life in the traps. “A lot of the cats I looked up to that bought me school clothes and things I lost them,” he says. “That’s why I’m here now.” Setting the backdrop for his reality are producers Mannie Fresh, Jazze Pha and Shorty Red to name a few. The guest line up is a who’s who of southern rap, but there will be plenty of Young Jeezy to bump from the coups to the corners.
