Jeezy recently opened up about his longstanding friendship with Jay-Z and recounted how that bond was cultivated overtime for an Uncensored feature on TV One.
"Me and Hov, mentally we was connected because even if we wasn't doing music we would rock with each other in a sense because we both had old souls and we both came from the same struggle," Jeezy explained. "But the only thing is, his struggle started before mine and he started walking his path before me. So, I have to look at somebody like that how I would look at somebody in the hood who was already getting money before I was."
He noted how their relationship is genuinely about them as people and doesn't focus much on music. "The craziest thing, me and Hov don't even talk about music," he said. "It's like, rare. It's one of them one-off things."
Jeezy also said, "A lot of people don't know, we done been in some fistfights and everything. Some things popped off in Vegas... I gotta say, Hov's got hands, 'cause we was getting down. We was back to back. I hear his assistant say, 'Jay, get in the car!' and he was like 'I ain't leaving Jeezy!' I was like, I rock with him."
