Following his highly-anticipated and incredibly unexpected Verzuz battle against his real-life rival Gucci Mane, Jeezy is letting the world know why he kept himself calm, cool, and collected throughout the entire thing.
In a recent interview with Big Boy on The Real 92.3 in Los Angeles, Jeezy explains how he was able to stay so calm throughout the entire battle.
“I just felt like I wasn’t gonna lose my cool—I wasn’t gonna let anyone, including myself, drag me back 20 years,” he said in the interview “I worked so hard to get in a place where things are good for me. I got multiple things going on, I employ a lot of people, and everybody depend on me. Matter of fact, I got a daughter that I love very much. I gotta make it back home to her.”
He continued with his explanation, saying, “I’m not putting myself in no position to prove no point to nobody that I’m real. I been real. … It’s solid, ain’t nothin’ ever gonna change that. I don’t have anything to prove. The only thing that I gotta prove to myself is I wanna be better than I was yesterday. … That would have been an L for me to walk out of there and be like, ‘Yo, I just really lost my composure out in the world because somebody was playing with me like we in the sixth grade.’”
