Jeezy Wants to Become an Actor
While Jeezy fans brace themselves for the rap vet's inevitable final album, the Pressure artist apparently has a new creative endeavor up his sleeve. The 40-year-old is taking his talents to Hollywood as he pursues a career in acting, TMZ has learned.
On Thursday morning (July 24), the publication reported that The Snowman is focusing his efforts on a slight career change. Jeezy revealed to the celebrity news site that he has moved to Los Angeles specifically to try his hand at becoming an actor. The decorated rapper is reportedly being represented by United Talent Agency, a globally recognized firm in the areas of film, branding, licensing, endorsements and more.
While the details regarding his upcoming roles are scarce, Jeezy will reportedly be playing a pivotal role behind the scenes as a producer on several projects which have not yet been specified. Speaking with TMZ, the "Like Them" rapper shared that he's very confident for what the future holds even saying, "Will Smith, watch out!"
If Jeezy makes his way to Hollywood, he will be joining a long list of rappers who have starred on the silver screen such as Nicki Minaj, 50 Cent, Drake, Ice-T, Common, Queen Latifah, Yasiin Bey, Eve and more.
Outside of the world of acting, Jeezy has been putting on for his beloved city of Atlanta. Earlier this month, the rapper participated in the the AJC Peachtree Road Race alongside Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms in an effort to raise money for disadvantaged youth. Additionally, the rap vet also attended Steve Harvey's mentoring program for young men to share nuggets of wisdom. So, there's really no telling how much farther Jeezy will go.
