Jeezy Talks Ferguson & Potential Joint Album With T.I.

Jeezy is coming close to the end of his “Seen It All” tour. While on the road, the Snowman got to sit down with CivilTV and chopped it up about what he thinks about the social injustice that’s become a pivotal issue in our country. Jeezy thinks that there should be “no free kills” and that the situation would have been different had the roles been reversed.

“I think that’s what’s happening to us as a people [and] as a culture,” he told CivilTV. “They’re pushing us against the wall to see how we react. I feel like with the whole Mike Brown situation [and] the kid who got killed in Cleveland, the timing of them is one of those situations where we’re being tested… There shouldn’t be no free kills. I often think about it and I thought about it today: what if it would have been a Black officer and a White kid? What would be the difference? I’m quite sure there would be something different about the whole situation.”

The Atlantic Records executive also gave us an update on the possible joint album with T.I. that was recently revealed. Not much has gone into planning out the project since both rappers recently released their own solo albums. But Jeezy says that he’s definitely working on a new album. His vision of the project is best described as a “best of both hoods” type of project.

“As far as the group album, [it’s] something I’ve never really done before,” said Jeezy. “It’s almost like the best of both hoods type of thing. What he does and what I bring to the table are like two different things but musically they’re kind of equivalent. [It’s] more so having the time to get it done [and] making sure it’s right. If I’ve got anything to do with it you know it’s going to be hard as a muthafucka.”
