Jeezy's new album, Seen It All, dropped Tuesday, but in the week leading up to its release, talk about the Atlanta rap star was more focused on his recent arrest and when he would post bail, instead of the music.
“They detained my bus drivers -- two of my bus drivers; one was a 50-something year-old lady, [plus] my cameraman," Jeezy told Power 105.1's "The Breakfast Club," speaking for the first time about the incident, which lead to a not guilty plea on weapons charges. In total, six people were arrested.
Not only is the "Me OK" rapper confident that he and his team weren't in the wrong, but he was focused on everyone sticking together. Which is why he didn't post bail -- set at $1 million -- for a few days.
"I’m such a real person and I know we was there in the right," he said. "I just felt like I couldn’t leave them there. When I stepped in the door, I had bailsmen right there to get me out. And I just made it clear: 'When I leave, we leaving together.' Point blank period. You go through things in life, and that's just what that was. It's only money. But it was more so about the principle to me. I wasn't leaving no man behind."
“When it’s all said and done, I’m confident that you will see that not me or anyone that was a part of my crew had anything to do with anything," he said. "I'm 100 percent confident that it won't be nothing else for me or my team."
