Young Jeezy was one of the man people attempting to sign rapper Chief Keef, and even though he missed out on the opportunity, he’s still congratulating the teenager. Keef signed to Interscope records last month, effectively turning down potential offers from the CTE label head and  Cash Money’s Birdman.

Just before the start if the 2012 BET Awards, Jeezy spoke with Hip-Hop Wired on what stands out about the Chicago rapper. “He’s the voice of the youth,” Jeezy said, following in the sentiments of T.I. “He’s the new guy that the kids love.”

Rappers Kirko Bangz and Big Sean also dropped details on each of their forthcoming projects. Check out the video below.
