When Robin Roberts asked about Hip-Hop’s 50th anniversary, Jeezy spoke about Hip-Hop’s impact beyond the music, sharing how Hip-Hop has given people the opportunity to become entrepreneurs, create jobs, help communities, and build generational wealth. Jeezy also shared that he “had to go through a lot of traumas” that he hadn’t dealt with in order to write his book. He called writing his book “very therapeutic.”
