This is hustling 101.

Have multiple sources of income!

Jeezy expanded his empire and stepped into the world of telecommunications. According to a report, he teamed up with Feddie Figgers, founder of Figgers Communications, which is a cell phone brand. 

Under this new partnership, the F3 cell phone and F-Buds earpods are the first products to be released. The phone retails at $449 and the buds go for $49. Slightly cheaper than competitors like Apple.

According to a news release, the “Trap Or Die” rapper said,

“There was a point in my life where I wasn’t able to pay the phone bill. Now as a businessman and entrepreneur to be able to partner with Freddie [Figgers&#93, someone who overcame similar life obstacles, and to give people more access to handheld technology at an affordable price, it’s a truly blessing.”

Jeezy’s entrepreneurial journey includes a startup software company, multiple real estate properties, Defiance Fuel Fitness Water and a partnership with American Cut Steakhouse. Last year, Jeezy and his partner in Tequila Avión sold their remaining stake in the company to a multi-billion dollar global spirits brand for an undisclosed amount.

It’s dope that Jeezy raps about making money off trap phones, and now he’s investing into a phone company. That’s a boss move right there!
