Young Jeezy’s son wanted to follow in his father’s famous footsteps for Halloween but the rapper opted to let his fatherly instincts takeover.
“He said he wanted to be ‘The Snowman,’ but I told him no, he needs to be himself. He’s cool with that though,” the Atlanta rapper told AllHipHop.com with a chuckle.
Young Jeezy’s Snowman logo was a guerrilla marketer’s dream, although it was the subject of scorn for some that felt it was suggestive of illegal activities.
The logo, which was banned in various high school systems across the U.S., was wildly popular with teens and has been seen on t-shirts, iced-out jewelry, stickers and posters.
Jeezy said his 10-year-old son opted for a more traditional Halloween outfit after his first choice was rejected.
“I don’t know what’s up with this little dude. He’s infatuated with Superman. I’ll take him out, but I’ll probably take him out in the neighborhood where we’re at,” Jeezy said. “I’d love to take him to the hood, but we probably won’t make it far. I’ll be signing [too many] autographs and taking pictures and stuff.”
That “stuff” includes recording material for his upcoming second album, The Inspiration: Thug Motivation 102.
“I can’t wait for December 12 [the release date]. There are 17 bangers, front to back. The album is crazy,” said Jeezy. “The album is a step up, but it’s still so Jeezy. It feels bigger and better [than Let’s Get It: Thug Motivation 101 ]. I promised n***as I was gonna deliver a better album and I think that’s what I’ve done. Matter of fact, that’s what I know I’ve done.”
Jeezy plans to film a music video in Atlanta for the first single, “I Luv It.”
