ATLANTA, GEORGIA - SEPTEMBER 12: Jeezy speaks onstage during day 1 of REVOLT Summit x AT&T Summit on September 12, 2019 in Atlanta, Georgia.

The Snow Man will now have his own talk show. Jeezy has his own talk show called Worth a Conversation With Jay “Jeezy” Jenkins, as Billboard reports. The news comes on the heels of the “Put On” rapper celebrating his 43rd birthday (Sept. 28).

“It has been my passion and my drive to inspire, motivate, and educate my culture. Every song I’ve ever written, every word I’ve uttered came from a real place and this is no different,” Jeezy told Billboard. “I will talk about issues that directly affect my culture and its people. From the front-porch conversations to real-life situations, Worth a Conversation is bridging the gap. I’m excited to be a part of the FOX Soul family and can’t wait to introduce you to Jay ‘Jeezy’ Jenkins.”

The show will air on FOX Soul weekly, and it premieres Oct. 14 at 10 p.m. ET. The talk show will be centered around Jeezy talking to guests regarding topics that impact the Black community, including politics, the social climate, entertainment, and sports.

In addition to embarking upon a new venture, Jeezy recently proposed to girlfriend Jeannie Mai, a co-host on The Real, as we previously reported. Back in March, the rapper also released his EP Twenty/20 Pyrex Vision. Worth a Conversation will be streaming via the Fox Soul app and website, Apple TV, Fox Now, Roku, and YouTube, among other platforms.
