Southern rap star Young Jeezy has announced plans to drop a new mixtape called The Black House: Thug Mansion along with offering an invitation to television host Bill O'Reilly to visit his city for an interview.
Jeezy spoke with MTV News personality Sway about the forthcoming tape and his challenge to O'Reilly.
"I'm working on the mixtape right now, The Black House: Thug Mansion," Jeezy said. "The streets called me, the 'hood looking for me. I gotta bounce back, baby." Jeezy also said he'd welcome Bill O'Reilly and Dennis Miller to come to his environment and discuss the claims made on "The O'Reilly Factor" that he and Jay-Z were racist based on lyrics in the song "My President." "I got white friends. It's nothing like that. I'm a taxpayer, I got a right to voice my opinion at any point in time. I don't think he really understands my struggle." (MTV News)
Jeezy recently addressed claims made by the controversial "O'Reilly Factor" host.
"D*mn right! I ain't never ran, nah mean?" Jeezy said in an interview. "At the end of the day, you're dealing with cats who think that we as young black men don't know what it is we do. We entrepreneurs, we came from nothing. If you gotta mispronounce my name to try to be funny and you got a Harvard or whatever education you got, then you're really showing how ignorant you are."

O'Reilly attacked Jeezy and Jay for using profanity and dissing former President Bush during a pre-Inauguration performance last month.
"I don't know much about Young Jeezy, it is possible he will appear on "The Factor" soon...I guess they didn't get the memo about bringing the country together. I don't think Barack Obama would approve of [the performance]. I think it was low class." (You Tube)
During the performance, Jeezy introduced his popular song, "My President Is Black" with a controversial rant.
"I wanna thank two people," Jeezy told the crowd. "I wanna thank the motherf*ckers overseas that threw two shoes at George Bush. And I want to thank -- the motherf*ckers who helped them move their sh*t up out of the White House. Keep it moving b*tch because my president is motherf*cking black." (Please Don't Stare)
