You can officially add “author” to Jay “Jeezy” Jenkins, who released his first book, “Adversity For Sale: Ya Gotta Believe.”
The 45-year-old successful rapper, husband, and father is still spreading that Thug Motivation, but this time in the literary form.
Just to be clear, “Adversity For Sale” isn’t a memoir – so don’t scoop the book expecting some tea.
The book is filled with lessons from Jeezy’s deeply personal story to motivate you to go after your dreams.
To Jeezy’s legion of fans, his name is synonymous with hustle, grit, and the integrity to go out there and achieve your dreams.
In his first book, Adversity for Sale: Ya Gotta Believe, Jeezy shares never heard stories of what it took for him to beat the odds and get out of the streets, his mindset he carefully honed to get an edge, and the lessons that changed his life and business.
Born into poverty and raised in a small town in the middle of South Georgia’s so-called “Black belt,” Jeezy realized at an early age that nothing was going to come easy, there were no handouts headed his way, and if he ever wanted anything in life, he was going to have to get out there and get it on his own.
So that’s what he did.
Now, for the first time, Jeezy retraces his steps, going back to day one to share how he turned nothing into something, stayed solid, survived the trap, and triumphed over adversity to become the successful artist, father, husband, entrepreneur, and philanthropist that he is today.
“Adversity For Sale: Ya Gotta Believe” offers 272 pages for your reading pleasure or you can opt for the audio version of the book, which is read by Jeezy.
Jeezy stopped by “The Breakfast Club” on Thursday to promote his new book and he talked about what he’s learned from adversity.
