Jeezy Net Worth
Jeezy Net Worth: Standing at 5’9″ and no longer considered Young Jeezy or Lil J, Jeezy has gained a net worth of 10 million as of 2022. He made his millions by becoming a multi-platinum rapper and entrepreneur. Jeezy has been signed with Def Jam Recordings since 2004 and recently renewed his contract taking on an executive role. He’s self-motivated and has been described as a ‘leader’ by those close to him. The Grammy nominated rapper is a mentor and role-model to his peers.
Born as Jay Wayne Jenkins on September 28, 1977, Jeezy hopped around houses as a young child due to his parents separation. He was born in South Carolina but grew up in Georgia. Moving around to different cities he would later become affiliated with the Crips gang and specifically Kirby B who aided him in his career. In 1998 Jay started the label CTE World (Corporate Thugz Entertainment). He released his first record in 2001 titled ‘Thuggin’ Under the Influence’. Jeezy, along with T.I. and Gucci Mane, introduced and popularized Trap Music into the media. Trap music is a genre of hip-hop that began in the 2000’s in Georgia that often uses synthesizers and drum machines. The word ‘trap’ is used to describe a house that’s specifically used for dealing drugs.
Jeezy Snowman: Jays infamous glowering snowman was designed in 2005 when he created it to promote his album Let’s Get It: Thug Motivation 101. Fans were quick to show their support and the logo was soon sported on tee-shirts everywhere. The Young Jeezy Snowman first made an appearance as a jeweled encrusted medallion around his neck. A Def Jam marketing director drew up the snowman while thinking of ways to build Jeezy’s campaign. Jay wore the design everywhere. Concerts, interviews and even in his music videos, the trend caught on quickly.
The ‘snow’ in ‘snowman’ represents his former cocaine dealings. Public knowledge of that caused an uproar among parents. The Jeezy snowman logo quickly made the news, and was banned by schools who were afraid that it was promoting drug dealing. Jeezy commented that the snowman is represented however you choose to view it, to a 2 year-old, it is just a snowman.
Jeezy ‘All There’ Video
Jeezy It’s Tha World and ‘All There’ Song: Jenkins released on December 12, 2012 his mixtape ‘It’s Tha World’. Running at just over an hour long, Jays twelfth mixtape features many artists including Trey Songz, 2 Chainz and E-40. The first single released was “How it Feel” and the second official song “R.I.P” came shortly after featuring 2 Chainz.
Jeezys’ “All There” video was an ode to late rapper Bankroll Fresh, who is featured in the song. In the video you can see where Trentavious (Bankroll Fresh) grew up, his family and his friends and the life he lived. Jeezy and Trentavious were friends before he was sadly shot and killed outside a recording studio in Atlanta.
Jeezy IG: Jay is pretty popular on Instagram with 4.9 million followers and almost 400,000 hashtagged posts. One might say his new wife and news of baby might have something to do with it! He is married to the beautiful Jeannie Mai, a talk show host on ‘The Real’, and is frequently featured on other programs including ‘Today’ and ‘Extra TV’. The two were married in March of 2021. Because of Covid they had the ceremony at their home with only close friends and family, and instead of going on a honeymoon they partnered with Street Dreamz Foundation and gifted 1,000 bicycles to inner city kids. Street Dreamz Foundation was founded by Jay in 2001 to help underprivileged communities around the world.
