During a recent interview with Hot 97’s “Ebro In The Morning,” veteran emcee Jeezy took the opportunity to express how he differs from everyone else in the game today.
The “Seen It All” rapper says he now on a mission to become a leader for the youth and that the only other person in hip-hop that can compare is the late great 2Pac.
“I can’t prove anything to nobody in this game,” Jeezy declared. “Ain’t nobody in this game got my credentials. It ain’t nothing [sic] to talk about. It’s me and Pac. That’s it, leave it there.”
When asked where his big homie and frequent collaborator Jay Z fit into the equation, Jeezy says Hov is on a different level and more business-minded than he and Pac, who represent on the revolutionary side.
“Hov is a businessman, but me and ‘pac were more so on some revolutionary leadership,” says Jeezy. “Don’t get me wrong — Hov, that’s my G. At the end of the day, I respect anything he do [sic], but he’s a boss. He makes boss moves. But you have somebody like me and Pac, we’re always on the ground level trying to motivate and inspire the people with my music.”
Jeezy’s fifth major label album Seen It All: The Autobiography is scheduled to drop on Sept. 2.
