Young Jeezys got something to say. You really should know why if youve been following the always entertaining, and insightful, banter of Pimp C. Much has been said about Pimps assertion in Ozone Magazines August 2007 issue that a certain Mr. 17.5 wasnt coming correct with his math. Mind you, the UGK vet never implicitly singles out Jeezy as the culprit in print or on his storied interview on Atlantas Hot 107.9. When XXL Magazine asked Pimp C in their October 2007 issue to again clarify the 17.5 reference, he reiterated that Jeezy was a cold muthafucka with a microphone but didnt back down on his assertion that the numbers arent adding up. Jeezy has been mum with his take on the chatter. But, hes blessed AllHipHop with the opportunity to get his opinions on the matter, along with bigging up his present endeavors, of course. Now before heads go running at the lip or tip tapping at their keyboard with partial quotes to incite more hype, please know that there is no beef. It comes down to a difference in opinion, and below youll find Jeezys. AllHipHop.com: How ya feeling?Young Jeezy: Like a million dollars homie. For the record Im doing me. I just been running trying to get some money but Im all ears, anything you asking Im answering. AllHipHop.com: Whats up with the clothing line?Young Jeezy: Aww man, 8732 its crazy right now. Im doing the official launch Thursday, September 28. AllHipHop.com: Is the clothing line through Roc-a-Wear?Young Jeezy: Yeah, we got a collabo. I sit down with the powers that be man and we got it really cracking. I really wanted to do it and they had a crazy outlet so we just made it happen. AllHipHop.com: Whats the meaning behind the clothing lines names?Young Jeezy: Its the culture. When I went in it for USDA they wouldnt let me do it, so I just flipped it. If you really from the streets and you know the old school ways, when you want to get at somebody without saying, you just put it on their pager, ya know, dial it in the phone. So basically if you go to the phone booth back in the day, you put it in somebodys pager, you look at their pager and read it, USDA spells out 8732. Its two or three different logos for it but we mostly playing with the numbers. Its one hundred, I wouldnt even lie to you. Its doing real good in the stores right now, when Im out and about I see people really wearing it, really buying it, really supporting it man, I cant do nothing but thank them for that. Other than that man we just grind. I might be back in on another album, I might not be. [laughing]AllHipHop.com: Come on man, the streets aint trying to hear you retiring.Young Jeezy: Ya know, just tell them get ready for me though because when I come, Im coming right. Its going to be my best work.AllHipHop.com: Do you have a release date yet?Young Jeezy: Nah man. I could be done right now to be honest with ya, I really never stop recording bruh. I never really stop. Its just depending on how Im feeling and when I feel the vibe Im moving. AllHipHop.com: What about a title?Young Jeezy: Yeah but Ima keep that under wraps because I dont want nobody getting a hold of no songs and putting a Young Jeezy album out. [laughing]. [Corporate Thugz Entertainment] is good, I got some West Coast things going on. I got 2 Eleven and Young Rocket from out there. 211 from Inglewood, Roccett from Carson, them my homies from out West so we been dealing with them lately. We got Slick Pulla and Blood Raw, they going to drop at the top of the year. I just signed my man out of Jackson, MI, Boo the Boss Playa, he one of my homies I been knowing him for a long time but he been on the grind. We just got a chance to really make it official. AllHipHop.com: So whats your take on Keisha Coles article in Essence Magazine?Young Jeezy: Aww man, ya know, I guess its publicity season everybody trying to sell records. Cant knock her for that but I aint really tripping because that dont pertain to me. She cant obviously be talking about me. Its publicity season, everybodys doing what they do, so I guess thats what that is. AllHipHop.com: So you wanted to address the Pimp C situation so Young Jeezy: Yeah, ask whatever questions you want to ask, Im answering. We gon keep it one hundred around here. We can get in depth about whatever you want to get in depth about, its AllHipHop, lets do it. AllHipHop.com: Just so were clear, Pimp questioned the figure 17.5. Hes been adamant that he wasnt referring to you, but people are wondering if its still a slight to you since you go by Mr. 17.5.Young Jeezy: If he aint referring to me he aint referring to me but first of all Im one hundred, Im a real street ni**a and I aint gotta stress that. And nor will I get myself or anybody in my circle indicted to prove nothing to no ni**a, but at the end of the day that what it is and thats what Im standing on. He been gone six years, he dont know whats been going on in these streets. And to be honest with you, nobody aint got to go shop over that way anyway. Come on man, this real man, this the world. You can go to the West Coast, you can go wherever you need to go to do what you got to do, aint just one store. [laughing]I dont know what thats about but Im still standing on it. Its 17.5, ni**a got a problem with it, then lets get it. AllHipHop.com: Have you spoken to Pimp C at all since all this came about?Young Jeezy: No, they reached out man but Ima be real, Ima keep it 100, when he said he wont speaking about me I left it at that. I really dont got a good relationship with Pimp but I know Bun [B]. And the thing I will say about Bun, even if dude dont know that, is that Bun knew me before rap. I used to pick Bun up in my cars and ride him around when he lived in Atlanta and smoked with him, have him around me and my homies, so Bun know me. If you ask anybody about me, in any part of the world, Im 100. Even out there in Houston, ni**as know me for real and Ima leave it at that. Bun like my brother from another. We chop it up all the time, me and Pimp just aint have the relationship. AllHipHop.com: And you and Pimp C have done records together.Young Jeezy: Yeah, but you know even the little comment about the 60 thousand for a verse, man I did four verses for them dudes for free man. I sell millions of records. I fucks with real ni**as. It takes a real ni**a to know one so when a real ni**a reach out to you, you do what you do and you dont trip on it. I didnt real get it. Me personally, I think ni**as was getting way too emotional. If you a G, youll reach out. I got a phone, you got a phone, whatever, and youll holla like men. You dont get in a magazine and say nothing crazy and think a ni**a aint going to take it personal. But at the end of the day, like he said, he wasnt pertaining to me. I couldnt really give a fuck homie, because at the end of day man, Im fucking amazing my ni**a. Im good at what I do, but I was great at what I done, Im the last motherfuckin Mohican. Aint no ni**a walking this fucking earth fittin to tell me that I aint do what I said I did. Im not even being mad about but its like when you grew up listening to ni**as, and you respect them, and you get out there and do everything they say they done, but betterand then you get to where you at and they dont respect you, then fuck it. Its what it is. At the end of the day, I done it. I done it homie, Im one of the best. I aint never seen none of these ni**as I rap with in the streets, ever. Never crossed paths with them, ever in my life. I know these ni**as from music. At the end of the day I did what I did and Im here now and Im blessed homie so I aint even trippin on that. Thats nothing to really glorify, thats all I know. And I cater to the people who love what I do and thats what I do. Real ni**as respect other ni**as craft and let other ni**as do what they do. My thing is sometimes you gotta let the younger ni**as eat though. For everybody wondering why it took me a minute to even speak on the shit, I been getting money man. I been busy chasing paper man, I aint got time to deal with no bullshit. Thats the ni**as opinion man, that shits like an Escalade, everybody got one of them motherfuckers. AllHipHop.com: Have you read the interview in XXL with Pimp C?Young Jeezy: Yeah yeah, I read it. Cause my thing is and Im a say this, if the ni**a saying he aint talking about me, then Im cool with that. I got love for Texas, I really do. I really been out there for real and I know what he talking and he 90% right. But, I wasnt speaking on that at the time. I was speaking on what was going on with me. So if he took it the wrong way, the whole 17.5 thing, thats what it is, though. But like I said, he said he wasnt talking about me, so I left it at that. But in the magazine, when they put the shit in XXL, it was my name in big bold letters, I aint know how to take that. But if a ni**a call me his brother then thats what he saying. My whole things is if we brothers we gon leave it at that. It can be everything or it can be nothing. But Im a man, Im a grown ass man, Ima stand on my own ten at all times. I dont take that well, especially when you got respect for ni**as, you feel me? My thing is, I aint got nothing to do with that. And I feel like he feel. Thats why I got in this game. Theres a lot of fake ass ni**as out here talking this shit. But you dont just wake up and talk like this, you dont just wake up and walk like this, ni**as dont know about that shit being around it. My thing is you get in the XXL article and discuss prices. Like, you an OG, you aint supposed to that. You still got to show some type of rules and morals for the street, theres still ni**as out here doing what they gotta do everyday to survive. Its one thing to speak on it on records to motivate ni**as but when you get to talking about that shit in magazines, the feds read too. Theyll pay you some attention if you dont get none from nowhere else. That aint being realistic. I would never disrespect the streets like that. Never in my life homie. Im telling you, I stand here on Gods greens earth, if I aint do it, its never been done. At the end of the day I would never disrespect the streets like that. I would never get in no magazine and discuss this and that and what it costs and all that. That might not be another ni**as program, at the end of the day you just putting the shit out there for the world to see. Its one thing to be you and do your craft and speak on it and do that, but if you an OG my ni**a you dont do that. Everybody aint fortunate enough to get a rap check. But god damn it I am!The ni**a spoke on my homeboy and shit [Ed. Note: referring to Big Meech of BMF], and Ima say this, thats my ni**a, thats my fucking heart and shit still real out here. So at the end of day ni**as gotta play by the rules. Im not mad, because I cant be. Cause you dont get offended when a real ni**a straight in his business. My thing is, we gotta keep the morals to this shit and we cant lose it by trying to god damn step on the next ni**a head. Sometimes you gotta let the young ni**as eat, cause Im the same niIIa that was screaming free this ni**a when he was locked up. Im the same ni**a that single handedly helped Bun get back on his feet when the shit was falling off out that way. I did several songs with Bun B, ya feel me?AllHipHop.com: Its seems like its simply a disagreement in the numbers.Young Jeezy: A ni**a can have a pocket full of stones or a Navi full of squares my ni**a, but at the end of the day who the fuck cares, we here. We made it. Only thing we can do is motivate the ni**as whos still out there. Fuck the numbers, the numbers change everyday. You think Im going to get into a dispute over some numbers? I could see if I was coming to shop with him, yeah. But other than that, come on man. If we brothers, you can disagree with your brother. What I really was pissed off about was the whole dissing the ATL thing. Im a strong believer in when you meaning what you say, and say what you mean, thats what you mean dog. So for some ni**as that fucked with yall ni**as from the beginning, for you to say that it just made us feel a whole other way like, God damn dog, what we doing?! We support you. You take the rap game and look at the younger ni**as of today we collab. I fuck with Buck, I fuck with T.I.P, I fuck with [Lil] Wayne, ni**as get money together, it aint about that, cause at the end of the day its a business. This aint gangland. If its like that all of us could have stayed in the streets. If it aint about the money, why we rapping for? I cant do you, I can only do me brother. At the end of the day Im an adult, and on top of that aint nobody gave my shit. I came from the bottom, I came from nothing, and Im staying here man. Every ni**a I know is either dead or in jail. When I see ni**as in the street that I used to know, [they] look at me like, Damn how the fuck did you make it? And I tell him I believed and the big homie upstairs made it possible for me. AllHipHop.com: To be clear, has anyone from Pimp Cs gotten at you to try to resolve this?Young Jeezy: I aint trying to put the homie on blast, he tried to reach out and when I got that I was done with it. Its like, man its already hard enough out here for us and ni**as gotta stick together. I gotta be blunt and this is my last time saying this; the man never said my name. A hit dog would holla. He aint hit me, so he wasnt speaking to me, that shit went over my head. And you can quote when I say this, I feel like he feel. Theres a bunch of fake ass ni**as out here and I know how he feel, cause I see it. But them aint my charges and that aint my case. You quote me when I say that. Those are not my charges and thats not my case bruh. AllHipHop.com: Sometime down the line would you be willing to speak to him? It aint even that serious bruh. At the end of the day I feel like he feel, Id die about this shit. I die before I walk in the street and I feel like a ni**a played. Tell a n**a to bring the motherfuckin yellow tape, the white chalk and a body bag my ni**a. I aint got no choice, what am I going back to? But at the end of the day it aint that serious and I know he feel the same way, cause he stand on what he speak on. Fuck all the dumb shit, lets get money. And it aint me coppin no deuces, it aint me slowing down cause I damn sure aint no sucka. But at the end of the day what would you rather do? Would you rather get money or be on some dumb shit, about nothing. Cause if the beef was legitimate we wouldnt even be doing this conversation. It would be on, like fuck that. It aint no legitimate beef. Its a ni**a with his opinion saying he was from out that way, and the prices aint, I can respect that. AllHipHop.com: You mentioned Big Meech, have you been able to communicate with him?Young Jeezy: I spoke with him actually. I tried to see him when I was out in Detroit. Hes good, holding his head high. Its just going through the changes of life man but we all praying for him. Like I say man, I cant express to you enough I just take that to the heart when people speak on that man. Thats my brother, like, no bullshit. Me and that man got a real relationship. That ni**a love me like his mama had me. I know his parents, I know his people, this aint no game. Hes just in a bad place right now. I shout him out every time I got a chance. But ya know, he got some things going on that I might not need to say nothing about. Were going to leave that at that but thats my ni**a, I love him to motherfucking death and I pray every night that they free that man cause he is a real, good, ni**a.AllHipHop.com: What do you say to the people that say all you do is talk about the streets, drug dealing and all types of negativity?Young Jeezy: Thats my point exactly. For all the criticism I get, I still keep it real. Im an intelligent individual and a hell of a businessman but I keep it real to what I know. Thats all I know, thats it, thats all I can tell them, I dont know nothing else. I been on my own since I was ten years old. I raised myself, I raised others around me, and at the end of the day thats all I know. If a ni**a cant accept that from me I can respect it bruh. At the end of the day, like I said, I am fucking amazing. Im good at what I do, Im great at what Ive done, Im the last Mohican.
