Jeezy says Michael Phelps is the “Young Jeezy of the swim world”:
Michael Phelps’ run at the Olympics — eight gold medals, seven broken world records — is unprecedented, and according to Phelps he couldn’t have done it without Young Jeezy. Phelps typically listened to the Jeezy/R. Kelly collaboration “Go Getta” before hitting the pool, which Jeezy himself doesn’t find surprising. “All my music is inspirational. You just gotta listen to the words and get what you can get out of it.”
Michael Phelps — the man of the hour for the U.S. at the Olympics — is a big fan of Young Jeezy.
I’m a big fan of Michael Phelps! He’s a great success. I like what he’s doing. He’s like the Young Jeezy of the swim world. I love it!
Do you ever go swimming?
No, man. Somebody threw me in a pool once when I was younger and I had to work it out, but other than that, no.
