The rapper who has invested in other companies sets his eyes on Silicon Valley.
Back when Young Jeezy was rapping “Thug Motivation 101” I didn’t think he would ever take his hustle to the tech industry.
That is exactly what Jeezy announced on Monday that he has invested and partnered with Technologist, Freddie Figgers, and Figgers Wireless. Freddie Figgers is a computer programmer, inventor, and entrepreneur. He is the youngest African American to own an independent, U.S.-based telecommunications company when he launched Figgers Communications.
Figgers has released what is being called “the most technically advanced device” called the F3 cell phone and F-Bud earbuds. An expert in quality, Jeezy thought it was a no-brainer to partner up with Figgers.
“I remember not being able to pay the phone bill, and now to be able to partner with Freddie, a guy who came from similar life circumstances, it’s truly a blessing.”
Figgers shared the same sentiment.
“In my beginning stages, during my trials and errors I often thought about giving up and getting a job. When I had those thoughts I referenced back to Jeezy’s early music that motivated me and gave me inspiration.”
