Jeezy’s ‘Adversity for Sale’: Thug Motivation in a Book!

July 19, 2023 | By Kali Girl

Atlanta rap legend Jeezy, known for his trap anthems and “thug motivation,” is expanding his reach with his debut book, reports Hip Hop DX. Titled “Adversity For Sale: Ya Gotta Believe,” Jeezy imparts life lessons to help readers achieve success, navigate setbacks, and learn from his own mistakes on the path to wealth and stardom.

The book delves into the mogul’s challenging upbringing, early hustling days, and groundbreaking music career, evolving from an independent mixtape artist to a Grammy-winning, multi-platinum rap star and record label owner.

According to the press release, “Jeezy will use parts of his story to illustrate some rules and principles he’s used to get him through his darkest days and kept him going, even when it felt impossible to go any further and the odds stacked against him felt insurmountable.”

“Through this book, his goal is to give everyone from the block to the boardroom a message of hope to get through their days.” 

“This is for all my day ones and everybody that’s been down with me since the beginning,” Jeezy wrote on Instagram. “This is the greatest story never told. In this motivational memoir, I use parts of my life story, every step, every mishap, every up and down that I’ve gone through to get to this point in my life to motivate the hustlers, entrepreneurs, and believers.”

Jeezy joins a roster of rappers-turned-authors, including JAY-Z, 50 Cent, Rick Ross, Fat Joe, and RZA.

Published by HarperCollins Leadership, “Adversity For Sale: Ya Gotta Believe” lands on bookshelves August 8.
