Translating Young Jeezy

MTV: A lot of rappers talk about how authentic a dude you are. You have one of the strongest street creds in the game right now.

Jeezy: You can't just wake up in the morning and talk about the sh-- I talk about. Like that situation with the cops, you can't give a play-by-play description unless you really lived that. ... I don't glorify [my hustling days]. I just take it and know in my heart it's nothing no other rapper can say to me because everything they came in the game to get, I already had before I got in the game. All the Jacobs, the women, the cars, everything they wanted to rap for, I was already there.

So basically, "I'm not glorifying it, I'm just saying it brought me all the success, wealth and popularity any man could hope for." Well thanks for clearing that up, snowman!

Nothing against the man, he's a charismatic dude who makes catchy records, more power to him. But good lord am I ever tired of rappers running this tired-ass angle.
