Young Jeezy is making the promotional rounds lately in anticipation of the release of his new album, the oft-delayed Thug Motivation 103: Hustlerz Ambition, which drops Dec. 20. Tonight, he'll make an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, which airs at 12 a.m. EST on your local ABC affiliate. And yesterday, he stopped by San Francisco’s KYLD WiLD 94.9 studio to talk about several topics, from losing his voice to whether or not he and Rick Ross will ever be pals.
But the most interesting portion of the interview comes at the 1:40 mark in the above video, when Jeezy is asked to name his five favorite rappers. It takes him about 20 seconds, but he eventually rattles off a list that might surprise you. In case you're feeling lazy or can't find time to peep the interview, here's his list: Scarface, Tupac, Ice Cube, B-Legit, and Juvenile. Definitely wasn't expecting to see B-Legit's name in there, if only because I wasn't aware that Jeezy was a fan of O.G. hyphy music from the Bay.
