Who is Young Jeezy? Originally named Jay Wayne Jenkins, Jeezy was born on September 28, 1977 (age 43) in Columbia, South Carolina. At an early age, he relocated to Atlanta, Georgia along with his mother primarily due to his parents separation (not married). Jenkins would describe his childhood as empty; in which, he moved around and stayed with different family members in areas like Macon, Georgia or Hawkinsville, Georgia on 600 North Lumpkin.
