Jeezy: Nobody In This Game Got My Credentials… It's Me & 2Pac, That's It


(AllHipHop News) Veteran rapper Jeezy gave an interview with Hot 97’s Ebro In The Morning, and the Atlanta native used the platform to separate himself from his musical peers. The “Seen It All” rhymer expressed now his mission is to take on a leadership role for the youth. According to Jeezy, the only other Hip Hop star to carry that load was Tupac Shakur.

“I can’t prove anything to nobody in this game. Ain’t nobody in this game got my credentials,” said Jeezy. “It ain’t nothing to talk about. It’s me and Pac. That’s it, leave it there.”

When asked about Jay Z’s place in that conversation, Jeezy shows respect to his frequent rhyme partner, but adds he and Tupac represent the revolutionary side of the coin while Jay represents the business side.

“Hov is a business man, but me and Pac were more so on some revolutionary leadership,” stated Jeezy. “Don’t get me wrong – Hov, that’s my G. At the end of the day, I respect anything he do, but he’s a boss. He makes boss moves. But you have somebody like me and Pac, we’re always on the ground level trying to motivate and inspire the people with my music.”

Jeezy goes on to discuss the ongoing violence in cities like Chicago and how the young people in those communities do not have an “OG” who survived the streets to look to for guidance. The Atlantic Records A&R executive cites Jay Z as an example of someone the streets show love to for making it out.

“That’s why Brooklyn loves Hov so much. Everything he do is better than last time. He’s always moving in a forward motion. You always want to be around people that move in a forward motion,” said Jeezy. “Before I leave this game, I’m going to make sure I put my imprint down and let them know this is what you can be ten years out of the game.”

  • Papi Peligro

    YAWN. All respects to Jeezy though. Recession ninja called it and had an album out the week it happened. You don’t have that kind of prophetic effect without your ear glued to the streets. Tupac though. Stop selling yourself short all I’m saying.

    • johnblacksad

      “I hate to have to be the one to say I told you
      Lord knows I can’t wait until this recession is over”

    • ZUBU

      Jeezy came out with the recession on point, but the recession had been building up for quite some time during the Bush era. If you listened to the nightly news you knew we were in or headed toward a recession, not saying he is not in the streets. He at least he still got boys in the streets.

      • Papi Peligro

        It wasn’t Basquiat basquiat.

      • ZUBU

        Jean-Michel Basquiat, bro are you referring to the artist? I’m really not familiar, so I searched to get a lil’ insight.

      • Papi Peligro

        Yeah you know Jay Z, Kanye, Ross, Pusha T, ETC ETC. Talk about buying a bunch of stuff. I get it support black artist. But Jeezy always kept it to the ground. I don’t think he Tupac. To me Tupac was more Black Power Movement. Dudes more BMF than Black Power movement. But he always kept it at a level I could relate.

      • ZUBU

        I agree with your statement for the most part, though Jeezy does talk about money I just think he does it on a level that most of us can relate to what he’s talking about.
        Pac was certainly on a Black Power Grind, coming from the family he came from it prolly was engrained in him from birth. You know family full of Black Panthers will have you think and feeling a certain way about the govt.
        Not certain how Jeezy really grew up, but he did his thang and aligned himself with Big Meech BMF. I’m pretty certain Jeezy has done a lot of what he speaks about.
        For me Jeezy just made a bad comparision, and having said that I feel Jeezy’s music he just ain’t in the same lane as Pac….

  • Montezuma1

    Jeezy is a fake Crip from Macon. Was a backpacker before he joined Meech’s entourage. This guy is so delusional. Wait… He does have a lot in common with Pac. My bad.

    • dfdf

      THANK YOU. Niggas really re-write shit about 2pac as well. And what you said about Jeezy is on point as well.

      Death changes things.

    • Coast2Coast

      LOL

  • Not a fan of 2Pac. But Jeezy is not even in my top 500.

    • johnblacksad

      Jeezy is one of the very few post-2000 rappers that have a solid spot in my top 10

    • Opposite Of Everyone

      word, i don’t know anyone who was into hip-hop before Pac came out that even rates him as a rapper !

      • johnblacksad

        “You ain’t lookin thru my scope, so you don’t know my aim”

        Mayne… Jeezy’s best bars are on par with the best bars your favorite rappers ever spat… IMO

      • tr3sdaddy

        Stop

  • Markus

    There must be something in the Ciroc these dudes are drinking. First Jermaine Dupri now Jeezy making comparisons to an icon. Nobody’s remembering Jeezy’s work when his career is all said and done. It’s sad that the new way to promote new music is to invoke the names of legends past. Dude is nowhere near the top ten list dead or alive to ever do it.

  • jd

    Boi STOP.

  • TheAfroRican

    There’s no such thing as individuality anymore….

  • The Legendary Troll

    there will only be one pac

  • Brindle

    Jeezy as our revolutionary leader? Negro please!

  • ghettogov

    Jeezy is nowhere near a revolutionary…nigga probably don’t know what the word means…guys like nas or lupe can talk that revolutionary Shit…maybe even jay elect but anybody who is really in a revolutionary mindstate is not listening to young jeezy. This nigga think he so important. I got some respect for him cuz he sticks to his guns but this dude wildin. Ninjas will say anything when they gotta album coming smfh

  • Reblogged this on HUEY mix wit RILEY.

  • Dave Williams

    smh i hope he is joking smh

  • mma slappy

    ask him to spell revolutionary

  • El Dogga

    Ummmmm just because you named your Album “Thug Motivation” doesn’t mean you actually motivated anyone to do anything positive! FOOL!

  • Freezamon

    If that nigga’s a revolutionary then I’m Malcolm X in the flesh….he need to be checked asap….niggaz will say anything to get sales…His movement needs to move on..

  • Ipullcards

    You and Pac? Smh u were my man until that dumb comment.. There’s Dmx who comes closer to Pac (old dmx) than you. You sold 20-25 million records jeezy?

  • True_Fan

    I guess everyone just gonna dismiss the fact that Thug motivation 101 was one of the best albums of the decade and when Obama was elected My president is black was like an anthem for black people.

    • Twonpass

      no it wasnt, please get out more

      • Celz

        Please like the comment above..

    • Poseidon

      The only “revolutionary” movement that album produced was the confusing spectacle of kids all of a sudden wearing 4x Christmas themed t-shirts in the middle of summer.

    You know what, I didn’t even read the article due to the ludicrous subject matter. “It’s Me & 2Pac, That’s It”; negro please. Jeezy is good, but not even close to a 2Pac good. Hell to be quite frank, he ain’t even on a LL Cool J level, so what cha sayin Jeezy???

  • Eny Daboss

    Lmaoo then rozay said he is the god of hip hop …. this is i dont buy cd i download them lol rather hear stupidity for free than buy them

  • I co-sign everything Jeezy said about Jay Z, but none of him being on the same level as Pac.

    >> Takes a few seconds out of busy day to hate on Jay Z out of respect.

    • Immortal

      Once again Pac rolls over in his grave, farts, and tells Jeezy….

      • Good thing pac is dead….or he would have killed himself after Jeezy’s interview!

      • Immortal

        Naw…Jeezy would’ve come up on the side of one of AHH’s old “have you seen me” milk cartons

      • ** During a VH1’s “Where Are They Now?” commercial. **

  • WeakSauce

    Jeezy, you my nikka and you come hard with your music my nikka but you is nowhere Tupac was! But still looking forward that new album!

  • Inmadopicouroz✓QUEENSᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

    This boy delusional!

    • stackzscrilla

      TRUE STORY!!!

  • ZUBU

    Jeezy, I’ve always dug his music but very few songs inspire or influence unless of course you getting street motivation. Pac was a very deep thinker so many of his tunes gave people something to think about, of course Pac had his thug tunes as well. I think Nas is close to Pac as far as opening the mind a bit, but Nas still didn’t raise fervor of the masses like Pac.
    Maybe Jeezy is referring to the songs: Prez is Black; Recession; Don’t Get Caught. Jeezy you better quit smoking that shiiittt, it’s messing with your brain…. IJS

    • Black Adam

      Fervor. I like that word bruh and you hit it right on the head.

  • hoeyuno

    “My president is black” does not make you a revolutionary leader! ! Haha good tune but your not the mainstream immortal technique. .

    • ghettogov

      Nas verse was the best thing about that song

  • dee

    Pac interviews alone >>> anything jeezy has said or done

    • meanygreene

      pac spittin’ at the camera>>>anything jeezy has said or done
      pac gettin’ shot>>>>anything jeezy has said or done

    • Black Adam

      Pac shooting two cops>>>>more revolutionary than anything Jezzy or any rapper has ever done with the exception of maybe PE & I.T.

  • Lean Left

    Ridiculous. Where is the “revolution” supposed to start–in the imaginary trap house that he has constantly rapped about since 2005, in each and every single song he’s ever recorded?

    Does he even know what the term revolution means? And since we’ve already established his world view is limited to a baggie of crack, what insight can he offer?

    Jeezy clearly has a much higher opinion of himself than many Hip Hop fans have of him and after reading his comments, I’m embarrassed for him. This man is obviously an idiot. He might try to release a worthwhile album before he turns into MLK, Jr., Ghandi or Mother Teresa.

  • youngplaya

    Jezzy trippin. PAC stand alone my nigga. PAC had niggaz thinkin like we need to get our act together. Jeezy make a nigga want to go get some “Work” lol ljs lol

    • Clondyke Classic

    You CAN’T be serious dude. I suspect you hit some A1 Cridddnack, blazed a blunt of LOUD to the neck AND shot up some herrrrrron’.

    • LOL~N

      That would explain the Pac delusions.

  • Poseidon

    Funny we never thought of you as a revolutionary up to this point, Jeezy. Considering you’ve been in the game already twice as long as Pac and he dropped a body of truly “revolutionary” work at an age more than 12 years younger than you are currently. I’m just saying.

    He got that Hov assessment right though, I’ll give him that.

  • damion911

    My nigga Jeezy what you doing lol. You and Pac on two different fields. Pac was not in the streets for real, Pac was born into a revolutionary family. You sold dope my nigga and you did it for real I give you that.

    • LeCore Noah

      Pac was not in the streets for real?????????? damn, that tells me how much you know about rap music and the people who make them. wow. No arguments and no words, you’ll soon come to realization and correct yourself. Peace.

      • Opposite Of Everyone

        Pac was in the streets if by ‘the streets’ you mean drama school.

      • Hey! It’s not like the school was located in the country side…..there were streets around it!

      • LeCore Noah

        Thank you bro. I am glad you answered that before I got to it. Some people are just as stupid as stupid comes I tell ya. Pac was a thug unfortunately. Another child who fell victim to the programming of white racist AmeriKKKa who were doing a good job locking young black males including this drama kid 2Pac by the way. I guess according to “opposite of you” he never met school boys and girls that run the streets as well. smh.

      • Fugg that…folks forget he shot 2 cops for abusing a black male motorist….if that ain’t some G ‘chet…nothing is in my book!

      • LeCore Noah

        Indeed and I ain’t never heard of no Jeezy shooting no motherfuckin’ cops (The biggest crooked organized gang in the world). Like Pac would say, “Somebody gotta explain why I ain’t got shit”.

      • pac was in the streets being dirt poor in major cities.It’s not like he was off in the hills not living in the field w/ a drug abusing mother and gangs and violence.

      • damion911

        How old are you? Are you like 16

  • damion911

    I think he trying to hype up his CD coming out next month

    • Papi Peligro

      Of course. Def Jam paid All Hip Hop how much for the plug.

  • I ain’t gon sit up here and say I don’t like jeezy…I like his music and sht but I’m sick of these rap niggaz even mentioning Pac name…ain’t another like the brother…unless u was on a track wit Pac shut the fk up rap niggaz…lmao deep niggaz doing too much…jeezy might have been trapping for real but don’t none of them BMF niggaz fk wit that boi, Bleu and nem stay going at em. I like his music tho but nigga need to just drop his album and kill the theatrics.

  • LeCore Noah

    Did he say him and Pac??? Try Pac and Nas. That’s sounds like a better comparison and even THAT doesn’t add it much. smh. How you compare BMF vs Black Panther Part?
