Jeezy

Jeezy put out a sequel to his classic mixtape in 2010 with Trap or Die II: By Any Means Necessary. Not only did he make Malcolm X’s famous words part of the release’s title, but he imitated the late leader’s famous pose on the cover, wearing round-frame glasses with his left pointer finger near his left eye, staring at the camera for a black and white photo.
