Back when he was young and wild, Jeezy got himself locked up in Cali.
After he got out, he did a video shoot with West Coast rappers Snoop Dogg and E-40.
They sensed he wasn't right, so they gave him some advice.
"My mind was gone," said Jeezy on The Good Advice podcast. "I was upset, I wanted revenge, and I wasn't focused. My whole equilibrium was thrown off. I was really on some. It was crazy. I remember sitting down and they both sat down and looked at me and they just kinda like, side-eyed me. ‘You know what? [they said.] You know what’s the difference between you and Pac?’ And I was just like, ‘Whoa.' I'm like, okay."
"They just went on to say, ‘Yo, listen, Pac never stopped what he was about. He never let up on his people. He never...' And it was like ‘You, better get out here and do what you’re supposed to be doing, because these people believe you and they riding with you, and you ain’t moving right. And we telling you that.' I’m sitting with E-40 and Snoop Dogg and I’m like, 'Damn. I'm gettin' G-checked by the big homies.'”
Is 2Pac really the best example to give somebody set on revenge, given how the rap legend was ended?
