Young Jeezy Gets A Salute from President Barack Obama
Young Jeezy is out in Europe finishing up the international leg of his “Hustlerz Ambition” tour but while he was away he got major props from the Commander in Chief.
During the annual White House Correspondents Dinner on Saturday in Washington D.C. the President mentioned the Atlanta rapper as he addressed the crowd.
“In my first term I sang Al Green,” the president said about his impromptu rendition of Green’s “Let’s Stay Together” in January. “In my second term, I’m going with Young Jeezy . . . Michelle said, ‘Yeah.’ I sing that to her sometimes.”
Now that’s a huge look for Snow! You can check out Jeezy’s response via Twitter below.
As you may recall, back in 2008, Young Jeezy released his hit record “My President,” which also featured Queens legend Nas. The popularity of the record earned him a spot on Rolling Stone’s 100 Best Songs of 2008. Then as history would behold, Barack Obama would go on to become President of the United States.
