Young Jeezy recently spoke on hitting the stage alongside Lil Wayne for the America's Most Wanted tour this summer and what separates their nationwide run apart from past tours.
Speaking with MTV news man Sway, the Snowman broke down what fans could expect from him when he performs over the next few weeks.
"Me and Wayne went on my Street Dreams Tour," Jeezy said in an interview. "That's two and half, three years ago. This is our third time being out. But this is amphitheaters -- it's outside, so you have a whole different feel...I still do it for where I came from, I do it for the 'hood every time...I'm just ready to see what the crowd is gonna be like. How they gonna feel...For the most part, you gotta really be creative at this point...I brought the band out. I got a eight-, nine-piece band...Despite all the ghetto classics I got, I got music. I wanted to present it as music. Especially since I'm working on a new album, and that's kinda where I'm going with. I wanted to get them started early." (MTV)
He recently spoke on his forthcoming Thug Motivation 103 project with Kanye West on deck to produce.
"Mixtapes, you know, I got a few coming out but I'm really more focused on this album," Jeezy said in an interview. "I wanna change the way people think about stuff so I'm focused this album. The mixtapes, that's gonna do what it do, but I want the album to be like, when you get it, 'Ah, that's crazy.' I'm about 75 percent [done.] I wanna work with a couple more people and that's about it. Kanye did about maybe six, seven joints on there." (Hip Hollywood)
Jeezy's tour alongside Weezy, Soulja Boy and Drake kicked off last night (July 27).
The Young Money Presents: America's Most Wanted Music Festival will be the follow up to Lil Wayne's very successful "I Am Music Tour" playing a total of 47 arena dates across the US. After an opening act, Drake will perform, followed by Soulja Boy and Young Jeezy's sets with Lil Wayne closing out the show. The tour will kick off on July 27, 2009 at the Toyota Pavillion in Scranton, Pennsylvania and end on August 23, 2009 at the Superpages.com Center in Dallas, Texas. (The Urban Daily)
Drake initially hinted at Jay-Z joining the tour, however, Soulja Boy reportedly took Hov's spot due to unknown reasons.
"God willing, if everything goes according to plan and everybody's schedule is in place, then I will be on tour with some amazing people," Drake said in an interview earlier this year. "One of them being Jay-Z, one of them being Lil Wayne, one of them being Young Jeezy and one of them being me." (Much Music)
