“Difference between right and wrong is me/N*ggas talk sh!t, but you can’t MC/we already know how much your watch is worth/talk about, helping the hurt, saving the church/won’t you brag about helping out where you come from/and give brothers a job that really want one…” — DMX
Like the former wise man once quoted, substance telecasted in your music reveals a more introspective side to one’s character. However, nothing can surpass the actions, for they speak louder than the words. While the majority of the populus prepared to stuff their face amongst the company of family and friends, Young Jeezy and Birdman put the morale of others above their own and put on for their hood with a little turkey motivation.
Good publicity and possible tax exemptions aside, both Jeezy and Baby know this won’t affect their future record sales and that’s O.K. The charitable nature of their spirits is much more valuable than a gold or platinum plaque. By displaying you never forget where you come from, no matter how far you travel across the globe, you demonstrate the true meaning behind the nation’s most celebrated holiday.
