It’s still weird to me that hip hop stars add ESPN to their promo stops but the results have been pretty cool. Jeezy stopped by ESPN’s Bristol, Connecticut, campus to promote his eighth studio album, “Church in These Streets,” which dropped on Friday. The Grammy-nominated rapper and avid Atlanta Hawks fan also took a moment to fulfill their “song-star” challenge. They asked him to assign his songs as anthems for 14 of the biggest stars in the NBA this season.
Jeezy did exactly what he set out to do and that was to bring Church to the NYC streets last night. He made his grand entrance to his own concert at High Line Ball Room leading the congregation. Midnight marked Friday the 13th, the release of his new album and he made sure to march from Union Square all the way to the venue with a mobb of his own people with a mix of fans. Check out how Jeezy turned High line BallRoom upside down last night.
Aye the truth always prevails! Young Jeezy is going to keep his 5 million that his former friend tried to take from him through court. This former “friend” of his really went as far as to claim he helped Jeezy launch his career and thought that because he didn’t get the credit he deserved, sued the rapper to court in hopes for a big payout. Nice try my guy, but you’re taking an L for this as Young Jeezy and his team of court officials won the case.
Young Jeezy crafted Thug Motivation 101. As a result he is allowed to call himself the father of trap music. Hit the jump to watch the full interview where the Snowman touches on music and current events at the A3C Conference.
