Jeezy recently teamed up with the Atlanta Hawks to serve as the latest guest for the team’s music series. The Atlanta-based rapper performed at halftime as the Hawks faced off against the OKC Thunder.
Following the Hawks 106-100 victory, Jeezy performed a more extensive set by performing past hits such as “Go Crazy,” “Super Freak,” and “Bottom of the Map.” He also performed “God” from his latest album, Church in These Streets.
Before the Hawks game and performances, Jeezy discussed how music and sports all coincide and why he’s alway been a life long fan of the Hawks
“To be a part of the Hawks game is dope,” Jeezy said. “I have a lot of love for the city. It took some convincing [for me to perform] because I enjoy watching the game. To get out there and perform is a different feeling. If there was one song that I would use as a theme for the Hawks it would be ‘Put On’ because they definitely put on for the city. Every time they get close we rally behind them. Our team doesn’t have a big name player, but I think they play as hard as anyone else. I like to see a team that comes together as one.”
