In the latest issue of The Source, Jeezy opens up about being a gangster rapper and shares his thoughts on the police involvement in Ferguson.   Find out what he said inside and listen to T.I. diss Floyd Mayweather on the "Am I Wrong" (REMIX) inside...


Atlanta native Jeezy finds himself on the cover of the sought after 2014 Power 30/SOURCE360 issue this year.  The rapper, who's currently on tour with Wiz Khalifa, was recently arrested for gun possession, but now that he's bonded out of jail - he's ready to hit the airwaves again.

During the interview, he reveals why this has been one of the most important years of his career, talks about cops and Ferguson, MO ("They did all the wrong things") and even says he auditioned to be Tupac in the “Holler If You Hear Me” musical (I came to New York, auditioned and everything. Ol’ man was going to be on Broadway).  The 2014 Power 30/SOURCE360 issue hits newsstands soon, in the meantime, here are the highlights:


On being a gangster rapper in 2014:

I think me and people like me that answered the call, and were appointed by the people to be their spokesperson have to walk a separate line because, you might like my music, but I think you probably love me more for what I stand for and what my morals are. So I think that’s what makes me special, and different from a lot of artists, because you know we got some people where their whole career is off pure talent. They’re very talented but they don’t have any morals, or the ability to go sit outside and watch something, and then be able to go talk about it in a rhyme form and make you believe it. Everything is so internet based now, you don’t even know what to believe anymore.

On Ferguson:

I just feel like, when things like this happen, you have to build trust within the community. They did all the wrong things. Instead of going there and trying to resolve the situation, they went in there with tasers, riot guns and riot forces, and you can’t come to my neighborhood and not expect us to stand up for what we believe in. You know, that type of sh*t happens in Iraq, that doesn’t happen in Ferguson.

On auditioning to be Tupac on Broadway:

Jeezy was almost Tupac. No, he didn’t go to the tattoo parlor and stop just short of getting “Thug Life” tattooed across his stomach, but when it came to cast the Tupac character in the short-lived Tupac musical, “Holler If You Hear Me”, Jeezy read for the part and earnestly competed to land it.I came to New York, auditioned and everything. Ol’ man was going to be on Broadway, man [laughs].



New diss records....

T.I. is still up in his feelings about the Floyd Mayweather drama (you'll recall they had a run-in in Las Vegas after Floyd made some comments about Tiny) and now he's put his feelings on record.  On “Am I Wrong”. Tip remixes the Nico and Vinz hit and throws a few shots at Floyd along the way.  But he doesn't stop there, he has a few bars about Tiny and infidelity as well.

On Floyd....

Don't care what you do for a living, run up on you
Look up to my eye right now
Recognize I'm a man that'd die right now

On rumors about Tiny AND Floyd

Sucker, if I got a woman and you touch her
She supposed to stay with you if you a bad mother fucker
She come back to me, as far as I can see
You all she really needed to see what she really need (I know)
Look at me and see what you will never be

END OF SUMMER: Rihanna SUNBATHES In A Pink Bikini Aboard A Yacht In Cannes

 photo rihcurls5.jpg

Summer is coming to an end soon. But not before Rihanna can perfect her tan aboard a yacht in Cannes. Peep the Bajan beauty's bikini candids inside…

Since coming off her Monster tour with Eminem, Rihanna has been living it up overseas on some serious boss status ish. First, Rih and her crew sailed the seas of Italy, traveling to active volcanoes and sight-seeing while snorkeling in the ocean.

Today, the Pop princess is aboard a yacht with friends traveling the waters along the South of France. She was spotted in a pink bikini laid out on the upper deck of her posh yacht as she worked on her golden tan.

Rih and co. had plenty reasons to "pour it up", one being that her debut album Music of the Sun dropped nine years ago on August 30th. Has it really been that long? Time is flying...

And before Rih and company soaked in some sun, the “Diamonds” singers went on a fun-filled ride on some four wheelers for a trip around the French island of Corsica. Chick was doing the most as she sipped on a beer and participated in one of her favorite pastimes while maneuvering her ride. Check out those pics on our Instagram page HERE.

It appears Rih is trying to get in as much fun as she can before she releases her next studio album, which is supposedly dropping in November. Once that album drops, you know chick will be back on her grind.
