Rapper Jeezy has called Tekashi 6ix9ine a "marketing genius" during a recent interview.

"If he played it smart, he'd be in movies right now. It's clear to see he's an actor. An actor can emulate anything. He was emulating the music and then watching what people did to gain clout and he mastered it, so he's really a marketing genius when you think about it, but that don't mean he's a real individual," he told Big Boy during a recent interview.

Tekashi's trial is scheduled to kick off this month, and he could be out as soon as January.

In other news, Jeezy has been gushing about his new bae, Jeannie Mai:

"Life is amazing," Jeezy shared. "She's amazing too, by the way."

During an episode of The Real, Mai confirmed that she is dating the southern trap rapper.

"Jeezy and I hang out. He's very special to me, so we don’t really have a label to define what it is we’re doing. We’re just having a good time together," she explained.
