                        'I got money' is one of my favorite Jeezy songs of all time, and I know how he used DJ Toomp for Graduation to change his sound, I was so obsessed with 'Can't tell me nothing' and I just realized it's based on the I got money beat, that's insane

                                  Glad I watched this interview. Hip Hop has a lot of idiot savants - people that can produce genius level pieces of art in the form of music, but can’t put together a coherent sentence when you see them in interviews. Jeezy is the rare cat that can express that genius that makes him a dope artist, in a conversation. Honorable mention to 50 Cent also, who’s ALWAYS a good interview.

                                    I’m a living testament of that statement in a sense it’s really all about mastering your emotions and continuously moving forward at all cost even to the detriment of friendships and other relationships it’s deep

                                      Bruh at one time Jeezy was so hot that Kanye started calling himself Yeezy... If you young AF you won't believe that.

Are you into gossip like a female? Really curious how you got this interview and you can see it in jeezys face that he was holding back from getting up and slapping the fuck out your bitch ass. You dont talk to a person and tell them about their competition and how much better/richer their competition is than them.
