Giving back to the community that raised Jeezy has always been a priority to him and the choice to give away bicycles was a personal one. "The only time I felt free was when I was in motion. That’s your chance to see where you want to go in life because if you stay still, that’s where you'll stay." Jeezy continues "If you’ve got a vision you can achieve it, just like you can ride from one street to the next, you can do that with life, too!"

In addition to Keisha Lance-Bottoms, the community giveaway was also attended by President of CAU Dr. George French, Hank Stewart, Senator Tonya Anderson, Bernice King, Karyn Greer, Xernona Clayton, City Councilmen Andre Dickens, Ambassador Andrew Young and more.

Jeannie Mai Jenkins is still on cloud 9 after tying the knot with rapper Jeezy, real name Jay Jenkins.

"The Real" co-host married Jeezy on March 27 at their mansion in Atlanta. She discussed the couple's nuptials during Tuesday's episode of the daytime talk show.

Jeannie revealed she officially signed her name with her new surname for the first time.

"So today, actually with my [executive producer] Rachel, I officially signed my name for the first time with Jenkins to it.

Jeannie said she signed her name "we can put it into the show credit that you see today. That was the first time I've ever signed it, in its official way, so I'm so proud to finally be Mrs. Jenkins!"

Jeannie, 42, also opened up about her wedding day to the raspy voice rapper. She wore a custom nude Galia Lahav gown with a sheer bodice over a billowing chiffon skirt.

"I knew that I wanted something very effervescent and nude. I did not want to wear white, because we all know that white symbolizes purity, and that ship has sailed! I knew I wanted nude because the color, it represents how skin deep I want to be with Jay. It's a color that represents how transparent we are with each other."

Jeannie was forced to quit "Dancing with the Stars" in November when she was rushed to hospital with epiglottitis, a potentially life-threatening inflammation in the throat that can block airflow.

She underwent emergency surgery, and later said Jeezy was her "rock" and stayed by her side throughout the procedure.

Rapper Jeezy and Jeannie Mai tied the knot during an intimate wedding ceremony in the garden of their Atlanta home on March 27.

They met in 2018 and got engaged last year. It is Jeannie's second marriage and Jeezy's first.

Vogue.com obtained exclusive photos of the intimate wedding in the garden of the couple's mansion. The photos were snapped by photographer Denis Regie.

Jeannie said, "Nothing like getting married in our very own backyard."

The 43-year-old rapper wore a pink suit designed by his favorite tailor, TeoFilo Flor. Meanwhile, Jeannie, 40, wore an off-white silk taffeta bridal gown designed by Galia Lahav.

"I envisioned this gown before it was even made," Jeannie said. "I can't believe it turned out so perfect. It's the most beautiful gown I have ever seen."

She added: "I collaborated with my stylist Lisa Cera and the Galia Lahav atelier to custom design the layers and the perfect hue. The finished product was everything I envisioned."

The couple had two ceremonies to honor both cultures. "The tea ceremony was very sacred to us," Jeannie told Vogue.

Her father walked her down the aisle. "We were so glad he did. My dad is my rock," she said.

And since they live in wide open Atlanta, no one wore face masks to the wedding.

Rapper Jeezy and TV personality Jeannie Mai will soon be husband and wife. The power couple picked up their marriage license one year after they announced their engagement, according to TMZ.

According to the Fulton County clerk's office in Atlanta, Jeezy and Jeannie Mai applied for their marriage license on Monday, March 29. The couple now has a 6-month window before they have to file again for another license.

This will be Jeannie's second marriage.

The 42-year-old Capricorn was married to her high school sweetheart Freddy Harteis from 2007 until 2017. The couple divorced after she discussed their childless marriage on the Fox TV-owned talk show "The Real."

Jeanie previously discussed having two wedding ceremonies to honor both of their cultures.

Jeezy explained why he proposed to Jeannie in an interview on the Fat Joe Show.

"When you get the one, you can't even play with it," he said. "When you locked in mentally, that's the battle right there. You want to build, you want to grow."

The 43-year-old Grammy-nominated rapper is a little gun shy about marriage. He was engaged previously to an African woman named Mahi, whose daughter he treated as his own. He also has two grown sons, Jadarius and Shyheim.

The couple started dating in 2018 and announced their engagement following a whirlwind courtship.

For many couples who wait 3 or 4 years to tie the knot, the Dopamine has already faded and the bare bones of their relationship are exposed.

What happens next depends on how equally yoked they are.

Is there trouble in paradise for Jeezy and his fiancée Jeannie Mai? Insiders whisper that Jeezy and Jeannie are stepping back from their wedding plans.

Jeannie underwent surgery on her throat a few weeks ago, and Jeezy wasn't exactly there holding her hand every step of the way due to his busy schedule - which included a Verzuz battle with rapper Gucci Mane.

MTO News spoke with one of Jeezy's pals, who said, "Jeezy wants to hold off on marriage. They're engaged, so there's no need to rush things."

He added, "Probably [they'll get married] in 2025 or something like that."

When Jeannie was asked about the upcoming nuptials a few months ago, she sounded less than enthusiastic.

Read between the lines:

"Honestly, right now that's not at the top of our lists," she says. "We're so happy we're able to celebrate an engagement right now. I feel like we got work to do, so when it comes to our individual work and our individual projects and the messaging we want to send to people -- even the way that we use our Instagram -- it's really important right now to spread an energy of positivity and uniting one another than it is to be planning a wedding.

Relationships that fly high and then burn up upon reentry to earth are typically referred to as Dopamine relationships. Read here for more info on that.

This is the phase of Jeezy and Jeannie's relationship when that instant attraction they once felt for each other has faded.

Now they must reexamine their relationship to determine if they are equally yoked and if they have anything in common.

Question: When do you think Jeannie and Jeezy will announced their split?

Jeannie Mai pulled out of Dancing with the Stars after falling ill with epiglottitis, an infection of the throat.

The 41-year-old TV personality left the reality TV competition series after seeking medical attention for the potentially life-threatening inflammatory condition that can cause swelling and block airflow to the lungs, ABC reported on Monday.

Symptoms of epiglottitis are fever, sore throat, difficulty swallowing, or difficulty breathing.

"My doctors discovered a health concern with my throat which requires immediate attention and surgery," she said in a statement to Good Morning America.

"I am heartbroken that my DWTS journey has to end here. I have pushed myself to new limits physically and mentally, and I am so proud of how far we’ve come."

Jeannie was competing with professional dancer Brandon Armstrong on the show and, following her sudden departure, producers have opted to only eliminate one couple from the show this week.

"Jeannie has inspired us, along with millions of fans, with her energy and dedication," they added in a statement. "We wish her a full and speedy recovery. Since Jeannie had to withdraw from the competition, tonight’s show will feature the eight remaining couples and a single elimination."

Rapper Nelly, Selling Sunset's Chrishell Stause, Backstreet Boys singer AJ McLean and Disney Channel actress Skai Jackson are among those competing in the current 29th season.

The 41-year-old Capricorn rocked a loose fit, faded denim outfit with black heels and a bedazzled face mask whereas the "Love in This Club" rapper, a 43-year-old Libra, wore matching jeans with a maroon army fatigue sweater and matching shoes.

Jeezy carried a doggy bag and the couple held hands on their way to his leased Ferrari.

Jeannie is still getting backlash from Black women regarding her comments about being a "submissive wife" when she and Jeezy tie the knot.

"Well for me, submit does not mean that you are lower or less important than your man," Jeannie told Tamron Hall.

"Of course, Jay and I respect each other very equally. What I mean is in my work life, in my actual life, I own my businesses, I run my team, I make all of the decisions and I lead entirely in the outside of my life. So in my home, I want my man to lead. I want him to take in what I would like and what my wishes are, what my dreams are, and then incorporate it, making the overall decision that’s best for our vision together."

On the Thursday, October 8th edition of "Tamron Hall," Jeannie discussed her public statement about her plans to "submit" to her fiancé Jeezy, born Jay Jenkins, after she gets married. Mai's revelation was met with mixed response on social media, but she had a ready explanation:

"Well for me, submit does not mean that you are lower or less important than your man," Jeannie said.

"Of course, Jay and I respect each other very equally. What I mean is in my work life, in my actual life, I own my businesses, I run my team, I make all of the decisions and I lead entirely in the outside of my life. So in my home, I want my man to lead. I want him to take in what I would like and what my wishes are, what my dreams are, and then incorporate it, making the overall decision that’s best for our vision together."

Jeannie dismissed social media's reaction to her statement:

"Girl, I am 41, I don't care what kind of pushback I get from other women out there. This is my life and you know coming out of divorce and also making a major decision to marry again after being blessed to fall in love and finding such a beautiful person, I want to be very clear and open about how our life can be so that we make sure that our vision is aligned and that we both are empathetic to each other and know that this is the structure we’re going into. I think the biggest mistake that you can make is not communicating what you want and not setting it up for a win."

"Tamron Hall" airs Thursday, Oct. 8 on OWN Network.
