Young Jeezy Talks ‘TM:103’

Young Jeezy Talks ‘TM:103’

Young Jeezy came by The Breakfast Club to talk about his long-awaited album, “Thug Motivation 103: Hustlerz Ambition” being the best, his start in rap and more.

Charlamagne confessed how he lost faith that Jeezy could come back with the same fire after the hiatus but was proud TM103 delivered. Jeezy proclaimed, “Man, this is what I do, I ain’t got nothing else to do. I love it.”

Jeezy then went to explain his three-year break saying, “When you think about a Sade album, you just want it, you don’t time her. That’s Sade, she goes and lives and makes her music on emotions, how she feels, and the things she goes through. I think it was the same thing with me, I been doing this a long time, I done gave the world 10-15 mixtapes they can live and die by. It’s never been a thing where I’m stingy with the music, or stingy with the message. It was always there and it’s all about timing and I feel like it’s right, we need it, it’s 2012 it’s a New Year baby.”

Angela then asked about the streets doubting him and how that affected Jeezy before his album release.

“I needed that,” Jeezy says. “It’s like your basketball coach when you wannabe the best, he gotta stay on you. They can love you one day and hate you the next, but it’s like a relationship, sometimes you need that. You need somebody to say ‘what we doing?’ and that’s what it basically was when I’m out in the street. I always heard Hov say, when I’m out in the public, it’s like ‘hurry up Hov’ and I got that for a change, ‘hurry up Snow.’

Not only do we see Jeezy making strides in music, his clothing line 8732 apparel is dominating overseas as well.

“I’m the number one urban clothing line in black America right now. Shoutout to everybody holding my stuff and we just expanded to China and Japan. It’s a big deal, I used to hustle for clothes, to have my own.”

Charlamagne asked if the brand moved away from the Snowman logo because of the heat it received from news outlets. “I mean, we passed the statute of limitations now so I think imma go back in with it,” says Jeezy.

From viewing his documentary, Angela discovered how Jeezy even got into rap as he explained the story for fans.

“Yeah, we had just got a studio. I wasn’t a rapper. I wasn’t a rapper at all. I got in and I wanted to help the hood out, I wanted to help the homie so I had got some bread and I went and brought this studio. So I just tried to get everybody in the neighborhood into music because they was killing and robbing each other, gang-bangin’. I was like let’s all get together and bring the city together and go in the studio and work and they were still what they were into. It was hard trying to keep young cats focused who were out there getting this money and living that life. At the end of the day, I spent all my money on a studio to help ya’ll now all of you are in jail catching murda cases and so on and I’m stuck with the bag. I had to do what I had to do and I gave it a shot.

Young Jeezy also discussed working with Trick Daddy on “This One’s For You” saying:

“Trick Daddy is an OG and I think a lot of kids don’t realize what he did for the south and for the game. You can’t forget that, he’s like Scarface, that’s Trick Daddy. You go in Atlanta he is the mayor ain’t nothing around that Trick move around the city and do what he do…that terminology that’s on the record is what they say in Miami, that’s their slang. “

As for Freddie Gibbs he was not forgotten, Jeezy spoke about Gibbs who also appears on the new album.

“Freddie Gibbs is hard though, the world gotta watch out for Freddie Gibbs, straight outta Gary, Indiana. I think he’s one of those special cats that I think it’s gonna take some time for the world to get used to him.”
