From Hawkinsville to Atlanta, Jeezy has long told his story through the microphone.

But now the entrepreneur and recording artist is sharing even more in a new book, “Adversity for Sale: Ya Gotta Believe.”

“My intention is to explain to people that when you see me, when you see this finished product, you have to know that I failed so many times,” Jeezy told “Closer Look” host Rose Scott. “The one time I won and you saw it, that’s all I got.”

In this second and final part of his “Closer Look” interview, Jeezy talks about a major turning point in his life, meeting T.I., and why he gives back to his community.
