Young Jizzle sat down with Complex a while back and spoke on everything–new album, working w/ Kanye West and how he simply doesn’t have time to make women a priority. Of course, bc I’m in love w/ Jeezy, I’ve posted a few excerpts below. Read the rest your damn self here.
Complex: You just said: “I’m not an in-love- ass nigga.” What do you mean by that statement?
Young Jeezy: I ain’t never been—I’ve been a hustler my whole life, so I was pretty much infatuated with money and success and just staying focused and down, so I ain’t never been the type of nigga that just admires my girlfriend.
Complex: But you got romance in your life.
Young Jeezy: Yeah, but they ask me what my love life is like, I tell them simple: I love life. [Laughs.] You know what I’m saying? That’s it. I’ma do me, but I ain’t never been the type of person out at the movies and holding hands and riding around listening to R. Kelly, you know what I’m saying?
Complex: What’s it like writing for Kanye?
Young Jeezy: First of all, Kanye fucking flew in the ’copter to Hawaii, so I was all on it anyway. When I got there, I saw dolphins in the swimming pool, so I’m like, “What the fuck.” He would play songs and be like, “So what you think?” And I’d be like, “Well, shit, you might wanna change this,” because I’m looking at it from a street nigga’s perspective, you know what I’m saying? I kinda just came in and gave my input and made sure all the dots connected. You gotta go in with the mindset that you know who you’re dealing with or who you’re writing for. ’Cause I done gave niggas some jewels and niggas like, “Yo, this shit is crazy.”
(((Heart him. My favorite commercial one-liners–> 1) Jeezy like to drank, Jeezy like to smoke…2) She said I seen it all, I said no you effin didn’t….3) Passenger a red bone, her weave look like some curly fries….<—I’m sorry.)))
