Aside from the obvious reasons that prove his idiocy (his name, for starters...), Young Jeezy is an absolute idiot.
Granted, he is a wealthy idiot, but wealth never prevented idiotic statements before, so why should they now?
The statements I'm referring to appear online in a vibe.com story about how Young Jeezy (ne Jay Jenkins) suffered from a serious case of hurt feelings after the late rapper Pimp C (of UGK fame) mocked Jeezy and other rappers who's careers have been defined by raps consisting of nothing but tales of drug dealing (see Clipse and Rick Ross for more on this):
"Muthaf*ckers talking about they’ve got kilos for $17,500. Bitch, ain’t no kilos for $17,500 up there, and you know what I’m talking about. Come toAlthough Pimp C didn't use any names, it was clear who he was pointing his finger at (Young Jeezy has a song on one of his albums called "Mr. 17.5").
Houstonand get the work and pop it cause we’re right there by and we’re going down there and gettin’ the work. And guess what, man. All y’all n*ggas talking about selling dope? If y’all n*ggas was some d-boys, guess what, man? I don’t believe you n*ggas no more cause I’m seeing you n*ggas in button up shirts getting cute and pretty trying to look sexy. N*gga, f*ck you. N*gga, and I ain’t gotta say your name." San Antonio
But now, many months later, via the media, Jeezy has decided its time for him to go into damage control:
"I can’t ever hate on Bun or Pimp cause I always respected what them n*ggas did, but I put in my work. That sh*t hurt me, cuz. F*ck that, man. That sh*t hurt me, dog. I’ll be lying to you if I said it didn’t hurt. ... Anything I ever said was the truth. I’m not fabricating nothing and that hurt me because I listened to them n*ggas and I did what they told me to, which I thought was right. ... For a n*gga that I love and respect to tell me that I’m a liar. ... Like, for real. I lived and died by that man."If Jeezy's being honest then that's pretty scary that he couldn't differentiate between entertainment and real life to the point that he thought that everything UGK rapped about was an actual endorsement for their listeners to do the same things.
Furthermore, in the day and age of Officer Rick Ross, why would Jeezy bring this issue back up and bring more attention to how Pimp C called him out for faking?
Because it all boils down to one single issue: Young Jeezy is an absolute idiot.
I won't even begin to discuss Jeezy's endorsement for Republican Presidential nominee John McCain...
