Young Jeezy & Don Cannon Talk Malcolm X Cover & DJ Drama Absence (Video)

Jeezy and Cannon talk with MTV about his “controversial” Trap Or Die 2 mixtape cover and why Drama wasn’t around for the sequel.

“I know a lot of cats are trippin’ off the cover. I tell ‘em like this: You had Martin Luther King, you had Malcolm X. One thing I respected about Malcolm X is that he believed in what he believed in. He died believing in it. That’s how I am. I would never compare myself to the great Malcolm, but I will die believing in what I believe in.”

“The original idea of Trap Or Die 2 was something DJ Drama was supposed to do. As days went by, Jeezy felt it was something that had to be done fast, because he was on a campaign. I didn’t have anything to do with the decision of the tape being with a DJ or without a DJ. But I really decided I would be there for Young if he wanted to put Trap Or Die 2 out.”
