He’s like the Young Jeezy of the swim world. I love it."
Later on in the interview, Young Jeezy told Rollingstone that he hasn't swam since he was thrown into a pool as a child. The Snowman plans to meet Michael Phelps as he told Rollingstone "I reached out and [Michael Phelps'] people got back to me. I’d love to do something for him, maybe like a performance in his hometown. We definitely very proud of it him back over here, real talk. You don’t go over there and win that many medals, man. Maybe he can lend me one for a video or something."
Baltimore, Maryland may soon be blessed with a Young Jeezy concert.
