Now, this is a birthday announcement!
Rapper and trap philosopher Jeezy is getting his own talk show, titled, Worth a Conversation with Jay ‘Jeezy’ Jenkins.
To celebrate his 43rd birthday Monday, the “Trap or Die” rapper announced his “self-explanatory” talk show on Instagram, writing, “Happy Birthday to me. Another year, Another endeavor.”
According to Billboard, the weekly show will feature in-depth conversations about a variety of issues that impact the Black community, such as the current social climate, sports, entertainment, and of course, politics.
“It has been my passion and my drive to inspire, motivate, and educate my culture. Every song I’ve ever written, every word I’ve uttered came from a real place and this is no different,” Jeezy told Billboard. “I will talk about issues that directly affect my culture and it’s people. From the front porch conversations to real-life situations, Worth a Conversation is bridging the gap.”
Jeezy said he “can’t wait” to introduce the world to Jay “Jeezy” Jenkins with his weekly show, which airs on Fox Soul starting Oct. 14 at 10 p.m. ET.
This announcement arrives months after Jeezy’s Twenty/20 Pyrex Vision EP, which was released in March. A month later, he proposed to his girlfriend and The Real co-host, Jeannie Mai.
Happy Birthday, Jeezy!
