Young Jeezy recently spoke about why he hooked up with Yo Gotti and Plies for his upcoming "Thug Motivation 103" album. Jeezy says the two have respective grinds and earned his respect.
"Me and Gotti kind of came up at the same time," Jeezy said in an interview. "But I respected his grind just as well as he respected mine. Same thing with Plies. We kind of cover the same routes with what we do. Of course I've sold records in other places, but I don't ever want to forget. 'Cause I was always that cat trying to get to the next level, and no one lent their hand out. I had to grind my way up. So I feel like the big homie, like, 'Come on, y'all, let me show you over here.' Just as well as showing the people over here who don't understand why I act the way I act, this is what I come from. And look who I'm bringing with me? You heard of them, but you don't know them. But now you know them."
