Jeezy Salutes Colin Kaepernick for National Anthem Protest [WATCH]
Jeezy season is closing in on us with his new album, Trap or Die 3 expected to hit stores on Friday (Oct. 28). With strong cuts including his Bankroll Fresh-assisted banger "All There" and his collaboration with French Montana in "All There, it's safe to say that it's going to be a cold winter. While doing his press run, Jeezy stopped at Fox Sports' UNDISPUTED and spoke on other things outside of music, which mainly included his thoughts on Colin Kaepernick protesting the National Anthem.
"I think it's absolutely right. Just because he's an athlete, doesn't mean he's supposed to live by different standards," says Jeezy regarding Colin Kaepernick's decision to protest. "He's a human-being, so if he feels like [that], that's how he feels. By the way, he's got more headlines out of doing that than a lot of us have by protesting and marching. So I feel from where I'm standing, he did exactly what's he 'pose to do. Now he could have lost his job, you know that's how that goes, but at the same time, when you're a human being and you have morals and you have standards, you believe in what you believe in. You can't let the money change you, because if you do, then who are you? So, I commend him on it. Hats off from me. He's a class act."
Kaepernick has received a a slew of support from artists including Justin Timberlake, John Legend, J.Cole, The Game, and more. As for the rest of Jeezy's interview, you can catch it above. Trap or Die 3 drops tomorrow.
