In a phone interview with Power 92 in Chicago, Atlanta rapper Jeezy explained why the authorities detained him for so long. Following an investigation where authorities searched Jeezy’s tour bus and found an AK-47 assault rifle a day  after a deadly shooting in an Irving California concert hall, where Jeezy and Wiz Khalifa both performed that night. During the interview, Jeezy explained that it was his responsibility to his team to wait it out with them.

“I really can’t speak on it a lot, but I will say that me and my crew should have never been detained.  And when it’s all said and done you [won’t] hear nobody from my crew had anything to do with nothing. And I will say this, a lot of people asked me why did I sit in there so long. The truth to that is I’m a boss, but at the same time I’m a real person. And it’s like those people on that bus…Two of my bus drivers, which they was well over 55-years-old. My camera man. Some of my manager’s people. They bust they ass for me on this tour and I refused to leave up out of that jailhouse without them coming out with me.”

Jeezy’s bail was set for a cool mill and he was held for several days after the incident. Jeezy pleaded not guilty on the weapons charges, prolonging his hearing process.
