Jeezy's done with the trap.
"I don't got nothing to do with that shit," he said earlier this week on Everyday Struggle. "At the end of the day I trapped my whole life to get out of trap. I don't want to see it again. I don't even want it connected to me. No disrespect to my people's that's out there grinding. I just want to show them a bigger and better way. I just left the New York Stock Exchange yesterday."
So fans didn't get the old Snowman on Jeezy's new album Pressure, which dropped last night.
In an interview this morning with The Breakfast Club, Jeezy had advice for the fans who still want the Jeezy of the past.
"People are always going to tell you 'I wanna hear something like your first joint,'" he said. "If that's the case, buy my first album again and again. We're not there mentally."
He also spoke on the centerpiece of the album: the Kendrick Lamar and J. Cole featured track 'American Dream."
"They both bodied the song," Jeezy said. "I was just listening to a song downstairs on Trap or Die 3 where I say 'I'm gonna leave the bars to Kendrick and Cole, I spit that real life.' It was there then, you know what I'm saying? And when I reached out and they sent the verses back, I was like, 'Wow, this is real.' And I feel like we need that for the culture. Everybody can't be saying the same things, having the same message, so I know what they mean to the culture. I watch it."
