Jeezy has announced a partnership with Freddie Figgers, the founder of Figgers Communication. The pair "aim to democratize and bring quality technology to market with wireless products that rival current competitor standards, but at a much more attainable price point," a press release states.
A cell phone, the F3, and earpods, the F-Buds, are the first products to be released under the partnership. You can purchase the F3 cell phone, which retails for $449, and the F-Buds earpods, which retails for $49, over at www.figgers.com.
"There was a point in my life where I wasn't able to pay the phone bill," Jeezy said. "Now as a businessman and entrepreneur to be able to partner with Freddie, someone who overcame similar life obstacles, and to give people more access to handheld technology at an affordable price, it's a truly blessing."

"As the youngest African-American to own and operate an independent, U.S. based telecommunications company, I built Figgers Communications on the premise that telecommunications access should be attainable for everyone," Figgers said. "The Jeezy/Figgers Wireless partnership is a natural evolution of two men who experienced some of the same challenges during our upbringing but rose above those circumstances to make our mark."
Back in January, Jeezy, aka Diego, linked with Boston George to drop off a self-titled project.
