On Tuesday morning Jeezy appeared on Everyday Struggle to sit down with Joe Budden, DJ Akademiks, and Nadeska Alexis to discuss his legacy, his career perception, & his new album.
During the conversation between the Trap Or Die rapper and the Everyday Struggle cast, Compton rapper YG would become the topic of discussion. Jeezy would reveal that he had to force YG’s hand to release his popular single My Hitta featuring Rich Homie Quan and Jeezy.
Jeezy would go into the story head first with breaking news saying that his DJ Mustard-produced tune R.I.P. was originally wrote for YG. Snow says he remained consistent trying to get the West Coast rapper on the track, YG would turn the track down saying he couldn’t ‘catch the pocket’. Jeezy says he would put 2 Chainz on the tune and put it out to prove to YG to trust his pen when it comes to hits.
When it was time to turn in YG’s My Krazy Life album he would be reluctant on putting out the track My Hitta (My N*gga, My N*gga). Jeezy would in turn take charge of the track and place the song on a CTE compilation mixtape. YG wouldn’t be too happy about the song coming out without his permission but Jeezy would tell the rapper, “You’re going to thank me one day.” The tune would turn out to be a Billboard charting single, making YG very happy in the end and the rest is history.
