Young Jeezy is on the cover of VIBE magazine's August issue on stands now. Inside, Jeezy talks about sharing a hug with Republican presidential hopeful John McCain on Saturday Night Live:

No disrespect to my man Barack [Obama].... [McCain] greeted me like a G. … The fact that he acknowledged me was crazy. I said, ‘I’m Young Jeezy, and it’s rough out here.’ He blew me off at first. I was like, ‘Nah, for real. It’s rough out here, so what you gonna do to change it?’ ... I like Barack, but at the same time I wanted to see what McCain was talking about.

Jeezy said he asked McCain if he had any plans for the hood: 'You gotta fix it, you know that, right?' And he gave me a look back, like, 'I know.' "

Jeezy also opens up about his relationship with Keyshia Cole which ended on a sour note earlier this year when Keyshia dumped him for flamboyant ex-boxer Floyd Mayweather. Jeezy tells VIBE that Keyshia proposed to him and offered to buy the ring, but Jeezy turned her down.

There's no mention in the article of the fact that Jeezy paid cash for Keyshia's $750,000 Atlanta mansion or that he gave Keyshia the deed to the property. My source says Keyshia ultimately left Jeezy because Jeezy simply couldn't compete with Mayweather's substantial bankroll (after all, a girl has to eat).

In addition to that, my inside source tells me Mayweather dropped a cool $3 Mil on an Atlanta mansion for Keyshia and he also picked up the tab on Keyshia's swanky Buckhead condo (seen in her reality TV show).

All I can say is, it must be nice!

    Dayum, she pimpin these niggas 4 real! Jeezy gotta bring out another song on top of that Put On, it's not that good...

  • Paris Hilton’s Valtrex

    Sandra, wasn't Jeezy and Keyshia Cole your source when you proclaimed on your site a few months ago that they were in fact still together and the rumors of their break up was false?

    If Jeezy paid for her homes, it might have been because he felt sorry for her. Remember on her show when she wanted to buy a house for a mother and sister but her accountant told her she didn't have money for that? Maybe Jeezy felt bad and purchased the home for her. Charity is a good thing, more of us need to be generous like that.

  • mizzdallas

    WOW! How desperate is Keyshia Cole to proposed to a damn monkey? Damn what happen to letting a man be a man I understand that some of these niccas don’t know the concept but at least let the nicca proposed to you?

    Im just saying.................

  • leat

    Jeezy just lost infinite COOl points and possibly one fan! i know he lying, KC seems to stubborn to even be proposed to let alone propose to a trapstar and offer to pay for the ring, there has to be an LOL part in that article, hes being funny that sounds like Kfed and brittany! why do they throw subliminals at each other in the press but always show love in public!! i dont get it, oh yeah when is his album droppin, piblicity stunt or good ol fashion ATTENTION getter!!!

    No, thats how he wants everyone else to view Keyshia b.cuz she ditched his azz.
    Nobody asked him to spend his dough on Keyshia...he did that willingly.

  • shhhh

    Yuck!

    **********************************************
    Is he f*ckin serious? Is he even able to vote? Why the hell does he care about who's gonna be president when its not gonna affect him? He's still gonna do the stupid nigga shit he does now; buy big rims, rent cars & smoke weed... Does he really think that Obama or McCain care about zone 1?

  • http://www.myspace.com/themdivasinc Mimi Renee

    ~~~i never understood this with men. stop doing sh*t for a season...if you purchased the girl a d*mn house...don't talk about it now!!! if you did it from your heart it wouldn't be mentioned...and for keyshia...she seems to be a average hood kind of chick so i'm not suprised...after f*cking tupac and all the others...i'm sure this was nothing to her`~~

  • OhWell

    VIBE is so damn wreckless for that close up of Jeezy. They know damn well its best to zoom out on his ugly ass. His lips look crusty as hell too. Lay off the swishers and get yourself a tube of vaseline Mr. Jenkins.

    Anyways, whatchu got to say Key Key? Well all know you're reading this mess.

  • lexdiamonz

  • mr mr

    ONCE AGAIN, SANDRA IS FULL OF S&^%....

    the real quote from the VIBE article is included in this post:

    Young Jeezy was left unimpressed after appearing on TV alongside U.S. Republican presidential hopeful JOHN McCAIN - branding the politician a “fraud”. The 30 year old, real name Jay Jenkins, appeared with McCain on U.S. TV show Saturday Night Live in May, and questioned the politician about his policies and how they would help improve America.

    But the hip-hop star wasn’t convinced by McCain’s answers, and is choosing to champion Democrat leader Barack Obama instead. He says, “I told [John McCain] the ‘hood was f**ked up, and he was like, ‘How you doing?’ (It was) real talk. They know entertainers, so they shake your hand (and say), ‘I’m your friend.’ But my mama is about to have surgery that I gotta pay for out of my pocket because she can’t get insurance. “I don’t really feel McCain. It ain’t just because Barack is black; he canmake change. Just like Bush equals recession, Barack equals progression. I really feel that.”

    DAMN SANDRA!!!

  • MOCHAMOMMY

    that real quote doesnt do anything for me if his ass aint registered to vote & isnt encouraging others to register. I'm sure his groupies (Keyshia included) arent trying to hear Obama, McCain, or anyone else. If u ask me, Keyshia is a season hoe. Jump from one man to the next when he's havin a good season. Football players better look out for her. I wouldnt be surprised if she staked out in front of KG's house

    I'm on my way to the korna now. I'll stop and get some fresh donuts from Krispy Kreme.... Brwnsugga, I'll see u there in a minute ;)

  • Topnotch

    i believe Jeezy.why whould he lie except for the fact that his feelings are hurt, stepped on and crushed cause Keyshia dissed his ass! wasnt he the ont that played her time after time? Had that girl clowing all in front of strip clubs in stuff. thats what his ass gets! Hi Five Keyshia!!! Play deez niccaz like a fonky piano!!! i aint mad at her!!do ya thing!

  • Topnotch

    *would*

    i aint illiterate yall..just typing fast!! lol

  • iyonah

    Play deez niccaz like a fonky piano!!! i aint mad at her!!do ya thing! -- lool oh ym goodness, my co workers all looking @ me ...

  • ReadTheBlog

    I was gonna ask what Keyshia saw in his fetal alcohol syndrome-looking self, but I kept reading and saw all those dollar signs...NOW I KNOW!

  • mjoylaw

    Damn, these niccas bought her houses?! I ain't mad at that..

    Jeezy's story doesn't make sense and he must be lyin..how he gon buy her a house one minute, then the next she offerin to buy the ring?

    She musta dumped his azz and refused HIS rang, and after all that AND he bought her azz a house CASH and gave her the deed, she STILL didn't wanna marry his azz..now the best he can do to get back her is dissin her publically!

    While she's stackin her assets..I ain't mad at you Keishia girl!!

  • kitty4shigady

    Well I don't know about that Mayweather thing because he running around talking about how he wants to fight reggie bush for stealing kim from him

    Beleive half of what you see and none of what you hear.
    Appreciate the read and the laugh.

  • http://www.myspace.com/amax79 AKAtastrophy1908

    Sooooo, Mayweather aint with Chilli no more? What is wrong with that chick? Beautiful, talented but can't hold a man (or a man in waiting to come out the closet -USHER) to save her life. If Floyd is with Keyshia, that won't last long. He things he is the tea so he is going to eventually end up with a top model type. Keyshia is too hood (and he mama drops it like it's hot on the red carpet- ugh!) Jeezy, if she greasy- expose her. Her talent was already exposed on the BET awards- I was embarrassed for her- even USHER knows to lip sync when it's live. Obviously, I'm not a fan. She is way to arrogant to be as mediocre as she is. Jeezy just go jump on Rocsi this weekend- everybody else has! 4th of July fun for all!

  • karaz

    Does she have diamonds in her vayjayjay? dang! 3 homes.

    On another note, I guess those rumors about Jeezy going to jail for his involvement with BMF have some modicum of truth, because I know his albums didn't move that much for him to have three quarters of a mil to throw away. If Keyshia was smart she'd unload that home as fast as she can.

  • candi got gushy

    Its not rumored Jezzy bought her homes,he supposedly bought her A home,Floyd bought her another worth 3 million according to this post (in ATL that has got to be a mega mansion to cost that much,kinda exagerated im sure) and Mayweather allegedly bought the condo from the show.All this is speculation,although men will do those things and more for a woman if they are feeling the woman and she isn't some trick being passed around. Keyshia seems grounded and yall wenches need to stop hating,it aint hers or any other womans fault if yall aint neva met a man to spoil you....im just saying
