Jeezy Quotes

Jay Wayne Jenkins

Jeezy quotes: surprisingly solid advice from the long-time rapper.

“Opportunity is everywhere.  Get yours.”

“You gotta believe.  You gotta believe.”

“The world is yours and everything in it, it’s out there—get on your grind and get it.”

“Every day that you wake up is another day to create opportunity.  Are you going to sit there and let it pass you by or are you going to get out there and make something happen?”

“Look up in the sky, tell me what you see.  The clouds?  Naw n*gga, not me.  I see opportunity.  I’m an opportunist.”

“We are all working towards something.  We don’t start out being an expert or the best, but you gotta have the foresight to know that you can be.”

“Anything you put your mind to… put your grind to… forgetful ass n*gga… must I remind you.”

“Let’s say your past is your present, and your present is your cash, so I look forward to the future.”

“People who work everyday are kind of scared of things they don’t understand.”

“It’s all in the game, the ups, the downs.”

“A lot of creatives and business owners stay on grind mode.  We want our products to be the best.  The only way for that to happen is to continually be in working even if it’s just a little bit.”

“Everyone will not always support you.  Some will talk crap and others will hate for no reason.  Let them do that while you continue to become more and more successful.”

“You’ve got to be happy with yourself.  You can’t sell yourself if you’re out here and you ain’t good.  Because you’re giving people messages, and if your message is wrong, then it’s like the blind leading the blind.”

“Sometimes when people get success they forget about the people that pointed them there or championed them into this position.  I pride myself on really understanding.  I wouldn’t even call it keeping it real.  I just call it keeping it me.  When they tell me, ‘You’re doing what you’re supposed to do,’ it makes me go 10 times even harder, because I know that there are people on the sidelines and they’re watching me.  They’re cheering for me.  I want to be the best me I could possibly be when it comes to them.”

“The only people worthy to be in your life, are the ones that help you through the hard times, and laugh with you after the hard times pass.”

“Anything that looks good makes you feel better.”

“I ain’t a rapper; I’m a motivational speaker.  I don’t do shows; I do seminars.  I really talk to people.”

“This rap game is just WWF; everybody wants points off somebody else.”

“All my music is inspirational.  You just gotta listen to the words and get what you can get out of it.”

“Every time I’m out and somebody tells me they love what I do, that’s what I do it for.  That’s like my vice.  That’s like my high.  When people understand that this is who I really am, and to be appreciated for your craft.”

“I can’t speak for everybody, but sometimes, people get in this showbiz game and they get the money, but then they forget why they got in the game in the first place.  I don’t even look at it as fame, I just look at it as me being me, and me going out here everyday and being productive, because I am the product, and I’m selling myself.  I’m selling my ambition and my integrity and my adversity, and I’d just like to be that.”

“My fans are my family, because they understand me and I understand them.”

“When you a ghetto star, when you a hood star, you gonna take care of your grandmother, your mother.  When you on that next level, you gotta take care of the city, the streets.”

“I’m a straight line.  And I don’t believe in wasting time.”

“My hustle is non-stop.  I never stop hustling.”

“I just think a hustler’s ambition is that I never stop.  I start off hustling and said I’ll never stop hustling.  An ambitious hustler is the one to hustle the hustlers.  When I grew up, my heroes were hustlers.  Now I’m their hero.”

“I never wanted to be a statistic.  I never wanted to be that cat who tried and never made it.”

“Everyday, all day, I have to be productive.  And when I ain’t productive, I get concerned.”

“Can’t slow down, too much evil in my rear view.”

“I’d like for y’all to meet the love of my life, her name’s the game.”

“Anybody that I ever dealt with knows that I’m a very focused individual, and when it comes to my work and what I do, you might have to play the back burner to that.”

“I think I’ve got a lot of life skills.  I’ve got a lot of wisdom.  I’ve seen a lot of bad things happen to good people.”

“Anybody that’s got a problem with me is probably envious or wants to be me, and that’s how I’ve always looked at it.”

“I put in my blood, sweat and tears and everything I had in me, because I didn’t know if I was going to go to the pen or end up in a pine box.”

“I knew in the back of my mind I was going to work every day relentlessly to obtain my masters back once I was in that position.  That was always the goal for me.  I did everything in my power to be great.  I would go to sleep at night knowing that I put in the work.”

“I created my lane.  No one can ever run my lane because it’s mine.”

“I don’t think nobody should compare me to anyone, ’cause, at the end of the day, you’ve got a Pac, you’ve got Snoop, you got Tip, you got Wayne… there’s only one Jeezy, man.  Ain’t nobody walked in these shoes but me.”

“I could sit right here and have a 15-minute conversation with somebody and change their whole life.”

“In my heart, I’m 100% real.  You can’t pull out nothing in my past that can say I’m not 100% real.”

“When money was plentiful, I was the first one who told you to stack it.  Live your life with it.  Now that money slowed up, I’ma be the one telling you to save it like they ain’t gon’ make it no more.”

“I’ve got to pay $5 for gas just like everybody else.”

“A lot of things come with fame, whether it’s losing friends or losing family.  You still gotta stand up and be that guy even when you ain’t having great things.  Because you’ve gotta be the spokesperson for your people.”

“I used to hit the kitchen lights, cockroaches everywhere.  Hit the kitchen lights; now it’s marble floors, everywhere.  Got my n*ggas out the hood, it’s such a wonderful feeling.  Three car garage with the 12-foot ceilings.”

“You just want to be appreciated for being you and being the best you.”

“You gotta have life your way.”
