Jeezy Voices Support for Colin Kaepernick on FS1’s ‘Undisputed’
Jeezy pays a visit to FS1's Undisputed to discuss a range of topics including national anthem protests, Trap or Die 3 and Muhammad Ali.
You can watch the six-minute clip above via YouTube. Jeezy voices his opinion on Colin Kaeperick's national anthem protests, which have inspired other athletes to protest the anthem as well. The Atlanta rapper says, "I think he's absolutely right. Just because he's an athlete, doesn't mean he has to live by different standards. He's a human being, so if he feels like, that's how he feels - and by the way, he's gotten a lot more headlines off doing that than a lot of us have from protesting and marching - so I feel from where I'm standing, he did exactly what he's supposed to do."
Wearing a fresh Dodgers fitted and a customized Snow Season jersey, Jeezy continues, "Now, he could've lost his job, and that's how that goes, but at the same time, when you're a human being, and you have morals and you have standards, you believe in what you believe in. You can't let the money change you, 'cuz if you do, then who are you? So I commend him on it. Class act in my book."
Jeezy also gives his definition of 'trapping.' Tha Snowman says, "Trappin' is what y'all are doing right now. I always look at it like 'Trap or Die' is saying, either you're gonna accept what they give you, or you're gonna take some type of chance and live with that responsibility. So you can fail, you can lose, but you can't win if you don't try. So a lot of people where I'm from, we just kinda get caught up in settling for what they give us - if that's a welfare check, if it's a local job at a factory ... I came from a trailer that wasn't bigger than this room."
As aforementioned, you can view the full clip above via YouTube. The Snowman also held a Facebook Live session and unveiled some great nuggets. He talked about getting back to the essence of quality music and the importance of getting that music on the street. Jeezy also discussed the election, how music is the one thing in the world that can keep people sane during hard times and his desire to have his own “8 Mile,” documenting his life.
