Vodpod videos no longer available.

Young Jeezy’s latest mixtape, Trap Or Die II, has the internets going nuts over both the music and the controversial cover featuring the rapper imitating Malcolm X.

Jeezy spoke to MTV News about the controversy surrounding the cover.

“I know a lot of cats are trippin’ off the cover,” Young said. “I tell ‘em like this: You had Martin Luther King, you had Malcolm X. One thing I respected about Malcolm X is that he believed in what he believed in. He died believing in it. That’s how I am. I would never compare myself to the great Malcolm, but I will die believing in what I believe in.”

Yeaaaah…. right.
