The rapper Jeezy (formerly Young Jeezy) opens up about Pres. Obama citing his music in a new interview with MSNBC’s Ari Melber. Before Obama’s election, Jeezy released a hit song with Nas, “My President,” imagining Obama’s victory. The rapper says the original song “predicted” Obama’s election, and hearing the President reference his work in a 2012 appearance meant “everything” to him, especially given his own “humble beginnings.” This excerpt is part of a longer MSNBC interview, where Jeezy also contrasted Obama’s leadership to Pres. Trump allowing his “ego” to animate his approach to the coronavirus pandemic. Aired on 04/06/2020.
