Exactly one week from today (December 20), rapper Young Jeezy will be releasing the 3rd installment (Thug Motivation 103: Hustlaz Ambition) to his Thug Motivation series. The disc has collaborations with Jay-Z, Fabolous, Ne-Yo, Snoop Dogg and more. In an interview with Billboard: The Juice, Jeezy talked about TM103 and his new single “O.J.” Ft. Jadakiss and Fabolous. Below are some excerpts:
On working with Jill Scott.
“I was put onto Jill while sitting in Las Vegas kicking it with Beyoncé at the pool,” Jeezy told Billboard.com’s The Juice. “We did a couple of attempts, then Jill’s like, ‘Let me write something.’ She wrote, sent it back and I loved it. The song is basically my life story… my whole description of what I’ve been through in two verses, with her bridge.”
On his single “O.J.” Ft Jadakiss and Fabolous.
“O.J.” is that life. It’s like, ‘We’re going to get away with this shit.’ I mean, we was killing that white chick. That’s what we do,” Jeezy said.
New York’s DJ, DJ Funk Master Flex premiered “O.J.” yesterday and it subtly correlates the clearance of street hustling with O.J. Simpson’ s relieve of charge. “He was acquitted, he didn’t do it, right?” Jeezy joked.
“It’s basically saying, ‘What you know about champagne every night?’ ‘What you know about all these women every where?’ ‘What you know about sleeping on the bed shit?’ If you don’t you need to know. You need to get on the grind,’” Jeezy told The Juice.
