Young Jeezy speaks to MTV about his recently released mixtape, Trap Or Die 2.
“Trap Or Die 2 Reloaded”: “I wanted to let them know I’m not playing any games,” Jeezy explained. “I’m the best at it when it comes to that situation. Really a lot of situations, but that [song] would be my favourite, because I really got it off.”
“Greatest Trapper Alive”: “I like it, because its playa and symbolic,” Jeezy said of the song. “That record won’t play out anytime soon. It’s always gonna be one of them good mixtape records. If you listen to what I’m saying, it’s all true. ‘Hop in my Cutlass and haul ass / Money first, money second, so that makes y’all last / It’s way too much at stake to be playing with y’all ass / Too much going on to be playing with y’all ass.’ Don’t get me started.”
“Ill’in” (Featuring The Clipse): “I got two special features on there,” he said. “I never really did a record with these guys. But they the only other cats I heard talking like me. You gonna like this one. Shout out to VA. You would think it would think it would be on your album, but it’s not. That’s what Trap Or Die is for me. I wanted to do songs that the average cat would leave for their albums. I always been hungrey, by the way. I didn’t want to make it seem easy, talk about my Rolex. I wanted to get in your heart. I wanted to make you think what I was thinking. You gotta séance in the room, like my man say. You can’t crown the air unless you séance the room.”
