    Later, the rapper’s son complained of his father’s violent behavior. In the follow-up interview, he quoted his father and said,

    “I will kill you. I will put a bullet in your head right now … If I could get away with it, I would kill you.”

    The R&B artist’s son also revealed that he tried to escape from his father’s physical abuse but with the help of his bodyguard, Jeezy blocked him in the stairwell. His son again added that his father choked and punched him repeatedly.

    After all these complaints the South Carolina-born singer surrendered himself after the court issued an arrest warrant for him. After the arrest, the rapper was said to pay an amount worth around $45000 as compensation.

    “This is no different than being in a Martin Luther King situation or Malcolm X. When you say these words, you got to stand on them.”

    “Nah, I would never let that happen. No! It’s a different game.”

    Jeezy also added that he would let his sons have honest reviews of the songs they would publish.
