Jay Wayne Jenkins (born September 28, 1977), known professionally as Jeezy (formerly Young Jeezy), is an American rapper, singer, songwriter, and actor. Signed to Def Jam Recordings since 2004, his major label debut Let's Get It: Thug Motivation 101 was released the following year and debuted at #2 on the Billboard 200, selling 172,000 copies in its first week and was later certified platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA). Jeezy is credited, along with fellow Atlanta-based rappers T.I. and Gucci Mane, for helping to pioneer and popularize trap music with a mainstream audience.
Jeezy began his music career in 2001 as Lil J with the release of Thuggin' Under the Influence (T.U.I.). In total, Jeezy has released ten studio albums, as well as numerous successful singles, including the top ten hit "Soul Survivor", featuring Akon, as well as the top 40 hits "I Luv It", "Go Getta" featuring R. Kelly, and "Put On" featuring Kanye West. Along with his own singles, Jeezy has also been featured on numerous hip hop and R&B hit singles, including "Say I" by Christina Milian, "I'm So Paid" by Akon, "Hard" by Rihanna and "Love in This Club" by Usher, the latter of which reached number one on the US Billboard Hot 100, in 2008.
Outside of his solo career, Jeezy is also the de facto leader of the southern hip hop group United Streets Dopeboyz of America (U.S.D.A), and a former member of the Bad Boy Records' rap group Boyz n da Hood.

Jeannie Mai isn’t going to have a typical wedding. When it’s time for her wedding to rapper Jeezy, she is walking down the aisle not once, but twice.
During an interview with Access Hollywood, Mai said she is having two weddings in order to have a traditional Vietnamese wedding, which is something her mother really wants.
“My mom being Vietnamese wants a very Vietnamese traditional wedding. She wants Jay, my fiancé, to wear the Vietnamese garb and to do some of the Vietnamese practices like the tea ceremony.”
The second ceremony will comprise of everything that she and her future husband want their wedding day to be.
“I obviously want a fun throwdown with pizza afterward. I want to have a couple of Dancing With The Stars dances in our reception,” she added. “So we’ve decided that we’re gonna have two weddings. We’re gonna have one the way me and Jay want and then we’ll have one for Mama Mai, just cause if we don’t we’re gonna hear it for the rest of our lives.”
Mai said she also plans on having some wardrobe changes throughout her two ceremonies.
“I’m a fashion girl so this is my chance to go out there and have fun. Jay loves fashion too, so I’m sure no only will there be wedding dresses, we’re gonna have the after-party outfit, the after hours outfits. We want to really have fun with this because this is our big day.”
Mai also made headlines regarding her upcoming marriage recently after her comments about wanting to submit to Jeezy once she becomes his wife.
“I want to submit to my man,” she said during an episode of The Real. “When I hear this definition…submitting has a negative connotation. It means that you are less important, you are lower than that person that you’re submitting to. It usually can be like, you know, referenced as somebody who works lower than you, and that’s not what I’m referring to here.”
She added that since she is such a “dominant woman” who has owned her own business and her a one-woman crew, she likes the idea of letting a man lead outside of her career.
“So, I make the decisions in my life,” Mai added. “When I come home, I like the idea that my man leads us.”
