Young Jeezy has pretty much paid for a bunch of people to get an education with his huge donation to the Jay Morrison Academy.
Just as his latest album, Seen It All, was hitting retailers yesterday, the rapper decided to do something kind for young minds! TheYBF.com reports that Jeezy gave the real estate company $1 million for the Another Way Out Scholarship.
The scholarship cover one month’s tuition, two mentoring sessions with real estate agent Jay Morrison, continued training with virtual protégé lessons and more!
After last week’s visit to lock-up, this is the second time he’s shelled out big bucks to help other people. As he explained to “The Breakfast Club,” he and a few of his staffers were arrested when authorities found an assault rifle on his tour bus following a deadly shooting at Wiz Khalifa‘s concert.
Jeezy was behind bars for a while and no one understood what took him so long to get himself out of custody. He revealed that he had his bail money ready to go the moment cops brought him in, but he stuck around in solidarity with his support team because he wasn’t going take off without them.
“They detained two of my bus drivers, and one of them was a 50-something-year-old lady,” said Jeezy. “I just feel like I couldn’t leave them in there. When I stepped in the door, I had the bailsman right there to get me out.”
He continued, “I just made it clear, ‘When I leave, we’re all leaving together.”
Jeezy eventually put up the cash to get his people out of lockup, and he considers it a small price to pay. “It’s only money, but it was more so about the principle to me. I wasn’t leaving no man behind I don’t care how it went down. We could have sat in there however long,” he said.
“When it’s all said and done, I’m confident that you will see that me, nor anyone that was a part of my crew had anything to do with anything,” He added. “When everything comes out and everything comes to the clear, I want to do this same interview so we can talk about how innocent I was.”

Sadly, doesn't matter by whose hand she died. Unjustified arrested set the outcome in motion. The state murdered her. #JusticeForSandraBland
Sandra could have been your mother, sister, aunt, friend or if she wasn't killed the community outreach advisor A&M. #SandraBland
