“I started my journey, and that’s why I expressed it and put it in the book because I didn’t know that I had been depressed for eight years of my life,” the rapper explained to Hall. .

You wake up and just want to go back to sleep forever, you know? And I’m falling into my vices,” Jeezy continued. And that’s what street life gives you. You know what I’m saying? he say.
