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."
