Jeezy shared that despite the end of his marriage, he believes God has set him on a new path. A path that entails taking care of himself, loving himself, and thriving despite his past experiences.
“God has put me on a different path. This path requires me to care for myself, love myself, and thrive as someone who has experienced what I have,” Jeezy stated.
