Jeezy is getting his own talk show.
The multi-faceted rapper has teamed up with FOX Soul for a new weekly talk series, “Worth a Conversation with Jay ‘Jeezy’ Jenkins,” premiering Oct. 14 at 10 p.m. ET. Jeezy, who will serve as executive producer, will welcome guests to discuss topics important to the Black community at the intersection of social climate, politics, entertainment, sports, and more.
“It has been my passion and my drive to inspire, motivate and educate my culture. Every song I’ve ever written, every word I’ve uttered came from a real place and this is no different. ‘Worth a Conversation’ is self explanatory,” said Jeezy. “I will talk about issues that directly affect my culture and it’s people. From the front porch conversations to real life situations, ‘Worth a Conversation’ is bridging the gap. I’m excited to be a part of the FOX Soul family and can’t wait to introduce you to Jay ‘Jeezy’ Jenkins.”
James DuBose, Head of Programming at FOX Soul, added, “Jeezy and I have been trying to find the right project to do together for a while now, and as FOX Soul continues to position itself as the premiere destination for Black culture content, it is an honor for us to partner on ‘Worth a Conversation’ as he starts his journey into the talk show space.”
FOX Soul is also home to Keyshia Cole’s talk show “One On One with Keyshia Cole” as well as the millennial-driven talk series, “The Mix.”
In addition to his foray into television, Jeezy remains committed to his music. Earlier this month, he announced The Recession 2, a sequel to his 2012 album. “12 years ago today I wrote The Recession, one of my best albums to date. As you can see we here again…” he told fans.
