On the heels of news that Lil Wayne and Drake put their planned collaborative album in the back burner, another hip-hop great says he hopes to join forces with a fellow MC for a joint effort.
Young Jeezy told XXL that he would love to work with T.I. on an album. “I already been on him man,” Jeezy says about working with The King of The South. “I been on him [to make the LP]. We got a record for his album, it’s crazy. A monster! To me I feel like it’s a ‘Put On’. I told him that. Crazy.”
Inspired by Jay-Z and Kanye West’s Watch the Throne tour, which Jeezy had the chance to witness in Atlanta a few weeks back, Young says he hopes to give his fans the same type of experience very soon.
“My first tour was really the ‘Georgia Power Tour,” Jeezy reminisced. “‘Watch the Throne,’ the tour was big because it was a experience. At this point, I think I’ve done all the rap tours I can do. Now, I wanna take it to the point where my fans come to my shows it’s a experience. That’s what I felt when I was watching the Watch the Throne show. It was a experience; ‘what they gonna do next?’”
Jeezy and T.I. have made several records with each other through the years, including the latest, “F.A.M.E.,” off of The Snowman’s TM103 (due December 20). Other guests on Young’s album include Fabolous, Jadakiss, Snoop Dogg, Devin the Dude, Jill Scott, Jay-Z and Andre 3000.—Shaheem Reid
