Growing up in the projets Jeezy, born Jay Jenkins, learned early how to hustle to get what he needed. In Adversity For Sale, Jeezy is sharing for the first time what he learned.

“Sometimes you have to go through some things, even some things that are excruciating and that you think you’ll never survive in order to get where you want to be,” Jenkins says.

Through this book, his goal is to give everyone from the block to the boardroom a message of hope to get through their days.  

“In this 50th year anniversary of Hip-Hop, there is no one we’d rather partner with than Jay 'Jeezy' Jenkins.” said Matt Baugher, publisher of HarperCollins Leadership. “Adversity For Sale details not only his remarkable story but the depths of knowledge he has to pass on to others. This book is his latest contribution to modern culture and we’re all better for it.”

Adversity For Sale will be available in hardcover, ebook, and audiobook with Jenkins narrating. You can pre-order today here.
