Jeezy recently revealed the unintended consequences of revealing his ownership of a posh Atlanta steakhouse.
What was once a sophisticated dining spot almost transformed into a wild party scene reminiscent of Freaknik.
During a candid chat with Nick Cannon on “The Daily Cannon” on July 14, the two discussed the pros and cons of being open about their business ventures.
According to HipHopDX, Jeezy’s tale of his upscale three-tiered steakhouse, American Cut, located in Atlanta’s plush Buckhead area, stood out.
“I had a high-end steakhouse in Atlanta in the south of Buckhead called American Cut, probably one of the nicest steakhouses there — three stories — beautiful. It was like my best-kept secret. I remember Nas stopped by. He was on tour [and] he stopped by, he was like, ‘You own this?’ I was like, ‘Yeah.’ He was like, ‘This is crazy.’ So we sitting there but it’s all classy.”
However, things turned chaotic when Jeezy mentioned his ownership on a radio show.
“Man, the minute I went on radio one day and was like, ‘Yeah, you know I own this American Cut.’ I went back there and you would’ve thought it was Freaknik. It started going down. You go in there to eat and you seein cats in there you used to hustle with. I’m like, ‘Oh my God.’ They trying to smoke weed… I’m like, ‘What we doing?'”
