The doc will be included in deluxe versions of TM103.
Last night at the Landmark Sunshine Cinema Theatre in New York City, Young Jeezy let the world in on his behind-the-scenes struggles with a screening of a documentary on his life, called A Hustlerz Ambition. Directed by Chris Robinson, the film follows his life from birth through present day, including the creation of his forthcoming album, Thug Motivation103: Hustlerz Ambition. Along the way, viewers learn about his struggle with Bell’s palsy, his time as a child drug dealer, his battle with the FBI, his non-beef with Gucci Mane and more. The film is narrated by Samuel L. Jackson, and was produced over the course of three years.
“I want you to see everything I went through to get to this point so you can understand why I make the music that I make and why I represent the people that I represent,” Jeezy told Billboard.
Jeezy sums up the doc with fitting words: “I can be what the streets chose me to be and represent them the best way I can.... I want to be what ’Pac wasn’t, I want to be what Biggie couldn’t be. I didn't do what everybody [else] did cause it worked for them. I did what Jeezy did, I did it the Jeezy way.”
Copies of the documentary will be included with the deluxe version of Thug Motivation103: Hustlerz Ambition, due December 20.
