By Nadeska Alexis

Young Jeezy shot the video for TM:103’s “F.A.M.E.” in his hometown Atlanta in October, but the Snowman moved things up north to capture the visuals for his latest single “O.J.” Both Fabolous and Jadakiss, who are featured on the track, joined Jeezy in New York City to film the Aristotle-directed clip. In exclusive behind-the-scenes footage, all three rappers get some mic time, with Jeezy telling RapFix that NYC is his “second home.”

“I love New York City period, since the first time I came here, it’s always been genuine and real in every borough I’ve visited,” Jeezy said on the video set for “O.J.” “And all my homies up here that I’ve been dealing with forever over the years, it’s just love, this is like my second home. I’m comfortable at home.”

Jeezy’s anticipated fourth album Thug Motivation: 103 Hustlerz Ambition will finally drop on December 20 with features that include Jay-Z, Andre 3000 and, of course, Fabolous and Jadakiss, both of whom he’s collaborated with previously.

“Our chemistry is really based on our friendship that we’ve had for awhile, so when we get together musically we’re just really going in, doing what we do,” Fabolous said, of his feature on TM: 103. “Our chemistry meshes well because it’s not really like a compeition thing, it’s just like two old friends getting up to have a drink together.”

“Our relationship stemmed from the There Is No Competition 2 project,” Fab added. “We worked on some videos for that and he did a great job. We got TINC 3 coming up soon and I wanna keep him on hand for that as well.”

Jadakiss reiterated the sentiment, adding that it was a no-brainer to hop on the track when he received a call from Jeezy. “It’s basically a phone call…he called me like ‘Yo I got something crazy, I need you for TM:103,’ he sent it through and we made it happen."
