Jeezy says that, despite his prolific rap career, most of his income stems from his various business ventures. He discussed his financial portfolio during a recent interview with Forbes New Money on Wednesday.

“I would say my business endeavors are the most profitable,” Jeezy said on the show. “I have a Steakhouse, a spirits company, I’ve built and solid spirits, I don’t know if you know about Avión tequila. Shoutout to my partner Ken Austin. We basically built it up, sold it to Pernod Ricard, which is probably one of the biggest deals of the year on the low.”
