Young Jeezy Gets Controversial
With his album artwork
Young Jeezyrecently spoke with MTV News US about the controversial album cover for his new album Trap Or Die 2: By Any Means Necessary.
The cover shows Jeezy posed as if he were Malcom X - but the rapper claims that he doesn’t want people to get the wrong idea and think that he's claiming to be on the same level as Malcolm.
Jeezy explained: “One thing I respected about Malcolm X is that he believed in what he believed in. He died believing in it. That's how feel like I am. I know a lot of cats are trippin' off the cover.
"I tell ‘em like this: You had Martin Luther King, you had Malcolm X. I would never compare myself to the great Malcolm, but I will die believing in what I believe in. You understand me?”
