“Before I Hit The Stage, I Look Around & See Ten Pairs Of Panties”

Atlanta rapper Young Jeezy recently opened up on how his music has grown from embracement in the streets to admiration by women and how he has adapted to having a mass female fan base.

Asked to name his weirdest on-stage moment, Jeezy said realizing a shift from men to packed shows full of women tops everything.

“The weirdest thing was, I went on stage and when I first started, my core audience was just real street n*ggas and as I went on, ladies started to come to my shows and after awhile, it was a lot of ladies pushing their way to the front because normally n*ggas would be in the front. Before I hit the stage, I look around and see ten pairs of panties on the stage. I’m just looking like ‘Damn, I ain’t do no R&B sh*t.’ I thought it was weird at first. I’m cool with it now, but the first time it happened, I thought ‘Yo, what the f*ck?’ I thought it was dope because that’s the sh*t you see on TV, like the Five Heartbeats and all that sh*t.” (Global Grind)

A growth in fans is evident as his new Thug Motivation 103 album is en route to topple its competition next week.

Def Jam/IDJ’s Young Jeezy album, Thug Motivation 103: Hustlerz Ambition, hits fourth, looks set for an impressive first week sales number of between 200-225k, based on one-day reports from those retailers who took time out from making fun of Newt Gingrich‘s double chin to respond. The South Carolina-born rapper’s previous album, The Recession, debuted with nearly 260k upon its release in Sept. 2008. (HITS Daily Double)

Jeezy’s album suffered a leak days prior to its release.

“Yeah, it’s all good, man,” Jeezy said during a live Ustream session. “We ain’t tripping off those suckers leaking nothing. Real n*ggas ride with real n*ggas, you know. Real n*ggas gonna go and purchase that album. That sh*t ain’t just about the music. It’s a movement, man. We all we got. It’s us and then it’s them, baby. You know what I mean? We all we got and I gotcha.” (Ustream)

Outside of fans and music, Jeezy recently reflected on President Barack Obama not reaching out to him despite putting out 2008’s “My President Is Black” anthem.

“I did felt a little played because I made the song to uplift what was going on and Dennis Miller and Bill O’Reilly, I felt kind of disrespected because everybody has a right to have an opinion but I felt like they tried to play me out like I was just some type of n*gga,” Jeezy explained in an interview. “I was bigger than that, I ‘am’ bigger than that. You couldn’t get them to go anywhere and 20,000 people recite every word they say. Nobody gives a f*ck what Dennis Miller says. I actually liked his show by the way, but I don’t watch it anymore. You know what I mean? And the whole thing with Obama, I’ve seen the Lady Gagas and everybody come to the White House and I sit back and I say, ‘D*mn, I really put in a lot of work. I really took the time out of what I was doing to really be down with the movement.’ I just felt like the hand wasn’t extended.” (The Life Files)
