Come September 20, Young Jeezy’s Thug Motivation 103 will hit stores, culminating a three year journey from his last LP. During that time, talk of Jeezy falling off, several mixtapes, one very important signing and a perceived “beef” with Rick Ross have surrounded his name. The Snowman sat down with me to answer some questions. We spoke about the highly anticipated tracks featuring Drake and Jay-Z and the other with Andre 3000. Both are for the same song, “I Do,” but Jizzle explains the thought process of having two completely different songs instead of grouping all three guests on one track.
He also opens up about the biggest difference between the industry in 2011 as opposed to when The Recession dropped. Lastly, the topic of Freddie Gibbs arose. Jeezy explains why that signing was so vital to CTE and how Freddie’s own prowess in the studio has channeled an added intensity for him.
