Jeezy Says He Thought Bobby Shmurda Was the Next DMX
In a new interview with DJ Whoo Kid, Jeezy talks about everything from the passing of Shawty Lo and Bankroll Fresh to trying to lock down a new collab with Eminem. Watch the whole interview above.
During their talk, Jeezy says he couldn't believe Young M.A was a woman when he heard "OOOUUU" for the first time. "She's hard, and I respect that because it's good to be different," he says. "I just heard a freestyle she did over some Mobb Deep shit...she's harder than a lot of these niggas. After Bobby Shmurda, Brooklyn need somebody to carry the torch."
He also talks about how Shmurda's video for "Hot Nigga" reminded him of Juvenile's video for "Ha," since it was shot right in the hood, and says he thought Shmurda was the next DMX.
Trap or Die 3 is out now and it's projected to do well sales wise. It features "All There," a standout cut featuring the late, great Bankroll Fresh. During the interview, Jeezy also big ups Bankroll PJ, who Jeezy say is "six going on 35."
In addition, Jeezy says he's been trying to get Eminem on the phone forever to make a collab happen. "You see Dr. Dre more than you see this guy," jokes Jeezy.
Jeezy also talks about hanging with Michael Phelps, who's a fan of "Go Getta," in Miami during the previous Olympics. Watch the whole interview above.
