Gaining a stellar buzz from his pro-Barack Obama single "My President Is Black," Young Jeezy spoke with SOHH about his realistic interpretation of what the upcoming new administration will mean for Americans.
Talking with SOHH's Gyant on the set of his video shoot, Jeezy brought local residents out to fill the streets to support his new political record.
"We here, we putting on for our city," Jeezy told Gyant. "Barack Obama, baby. The Recession, you know what it is."
Admitting the actuality of having our first African American president was difficult to realize in the beginning, Jeezy is ready to support Barack through good and bad times.
"Man, it was hard to sleep on at first 'cause you always think about the negative things but at the end of the day, man, they said we couldn't and yes we did," Jeezy explained. "We got it done. And that's all that matters. And when my man get inaugrated, get into office, it's gonna take him a couple of years to get it right, but we gonna bare with him.
While celebrities like Oprah Winfrey and Beyonce have confirmed their attendance at Barack's inauguration in January, the rap star also promised he would make the trip to Washington, DC.
"We gonna walk with him" Jeezy revealed. "I'm gonna be there baby, I'm there. It's gonna be like a press concert, I'm in there, you know what I mean?
