Young Jeezy, the Atlanta rapper known for hits like “Soul Survivor” and “Go Getta,” will perform at the Columbus Civic Center on Wednesday.
I wasn’t able to schedule an interview with the rapper prior to his Columbus concert. That’s unfortunate, because there’s quite a few things inquiring minds -- at least mine -- would like to know.
For starters, there’s the uncertainty over whether he prefers “Jeezy” or “Young Jeezy” right now.
If I had Young Jeezy -- er, Jeezy -- on the phone, I’d also (delicately) address his 2009 quasi-feud with TV host Bill O’Reilly and guest commentator Dennis Miller.
The pair took issue with Jeezy and Jay-Z’s performance of “My President,” a song that was inspired by Barack Obama.
Young Jeezy released his first major solo album in 2005. He’s a featured rapper on many prominent hits, including Usher’s “Love In This Club” and Rihanna’s “Hard.” The latter collaboration won a Viewers’ Choice honor at the 2010 BET Awards.
Fans are waiting for the rapper’s fourth solo studio album, “Thug Motivation 103.”
