Video: Young Jeezy responds to Bill O' Reily's comments

Young Jeezy Defends 'My President' Against Bill O Reily

Dennis Miller, you may be a comedian, but really, who are you kidding? You know full well his name not "Emphysema" or "Lil' Jeezy" — it's Young Jeezy and he's an artist that's been covered by MTV, CNN and plenty of other news outlets. If you pay attention to pop culture, you'd have heard his name plenty of times.

Miller was a guest on "The O'Reilly Factor" on Wednesday (January 21), and mocked the Snowman and Jay-Z. Bill O'Reilly, host of the show and noted hip-hop hater, also called Jeezy and Jay-Z's performance of "My President" at Club Love in Washington, D.C., "a rant that offended people." Guess O'Reilly didn't hear the audience, who screamed in approval afterward.

We already know how both Jay-Z and Jeezy feel about O'Reilly — we've heard it in their music. On Monday (January 19), before performing "My President" at the Warner Theater, Jeezy talked to MTV News about the importance of the record and what he was trying to express.

"Music is how you feel," Jeezy said about being inspired to write "My President." "But if I can say one word, I'll say 'necessary.' I felt it was necessary. I never ever paid attention to any election. Not really [into] politics or anything like that. It never benefited us. This time around, it's not a black-or-white thing — you got somebody in there for us that's well-spoken and gonna handle their business. I just wanted to do my part and let them know we need change, we need help, it's rough out there."

Jeezy said that he plans on releasing the remix for "My President," and that Jay-Z's was just the first verse of the remix we heard.

"The song was powerful already with Nas — now Jay is on there, we got a few more people on the remix. It's not even the song [that's important], it's the message. You still get bits and pieces out of there. You get your 'president is black, Lambo is blue,' but it's bits and pieces in there. You gotta listen. I ain't talking fast, y'all just listening slow."
