Young Jeezy took a little break from the NBA All-Star Weekend festivities to be honored by Houston Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee over the weekend.

The congresswoman presented the rapper with the “Certificate of Congressional Recognition” for his community work throughout the country, the Houston Chronicle reports.


“Your core values of hard work and integrity has helped improve youth in the Houston community,” the certificate, signed by Mrs Jackson Lee, stated. “The greatest good you can do for another is not just to share your riches but to reveal to them their own.”

Young Jeezy founded the “Street Dreamz Foundation,” which helps impoverished youths in urban areas.

Jackson Lee lauded his “outstanding contribution” to the lives of young people, The Chronicle reports.
