In an interview with Hot 97’s Ebro In The Morning, the rap vet and Atlanta native took a moment to explain how he’s on another level when compared to his peers musically. He went on to say that his main focus now is to take on a leadership role for the youth. According to Jeezy, the only other Hip Hop star to do what he’s done and is trying to do was Tupac Shakur.
“I can’t prove anything to nobody in this game. Ain’t nobody in this game got my credentials,” said Jeezy. “It ain’t nothing to talk about. It’s me and Pac. That’s it, leave it there.”
When asked about Jay Z’s place in that conversation, Jeezy said that Jay-Z represent the business side of the coin while he and Tupaac represent the revolutionary side of the coin.
“Hov is a business man, but me and Pac were more so on some revolutionary leadership,” stated Jeezy. “Don’t get me wrong – Hov, that’s my G. At the end of the day, I respect anything he do, but he’s a boss. He makes boss moves. But you have somebody like me and Pac, we’re always on the ground level trying to motivate and inspire the people with my music.”
