Young Jeezy talks to the house of Harris about “comparisons to other great rappers and why his music will be up to par with OutKast.” *stare of 1,000,000 blanks* at that last proclamation…

Let’s compare Let’s Get It: Thug Motivation 101 to Thug Motivation 103. Do you think, five years later, that 103 can make as significant an impact in today’s musical climate as 101 did?

Yeah, well, they just waiting on me to come back and change the game, that’s all. [Laughs] But, you know, OutKast made great music. I listened to 8Ball & MJG album the other day—it was good music. It was good music, man. That was us! Nowadays, everybody makes beats, everybody’s a rapper. But then those were the ghetto poets that we listened to, because they were the ones that saw the struggle, and they come out and they tell the world about it, and people feel it like that. I guess now music is so saturated and so microwaved. It’s, like, 15 minutes in the microwave and boom, you’ve got something. Nobody’s putting passion or any thought behind it anymore. Or even going in, like, really going in and making shit that’s going to matter in two months. ’Cause, you know, everything sounds good when you’re [in the studio]. And I’m not hating at all—I’m just being real.

The full issue drops August 10th.

  • TonyRay

    Just read this @XXLMAG. Never put Jeezy and the word intelligent together in the same sense. SMH. Just put out the music and stop saying you are a martyr for the streets.

    “Or even going in, like, really going in and making shit that’s going to matter in two months.” <— Because a single called "All White Everything" was really going to revolutionize the game. LOL.

  • jeezy is an entertaining guy. his music sounds good in a short car ride or in the club… outkast is some shit you chill in the crib and listen to.

    he’s gotta find something other than crack/coke to talk about.

  • robertTHEallen

    in other news, rick ross is comprable to the roots

  • robertTHEallen

  • WestCoastin420

    What he’s saying is on point for the most part…But he sucks as a Rapper. He should follow what hes saying…as far as Im concened hesnt been “goin in” his whole career. Soul Survivor was his only good joint
