I’ve known Young Jeezy for a few years now, and he really speaks the truth. Last week in Houston, he told me and my partner in Mixtape Monday, Rahman Dukes, that he enhanced a song we previewed a while back called “My President.” The record is on Jeezy’s upcoming album The Recession.
The Snowman recruited Nas for the last verse to give the song a steroid-like boost. One of my favorite lines from Nas? “She ain’t a politician/ Honey’s a pole-itician.” And I have to big-up his reference to Hulk Hogan. Jeezy told us that Nas “went in,” and indeed Esco did.
Jeezy comes off as well. And while the record definitely addresses his hopes for Barack Obama, Mr. 17.5 expanded the subject matter, talking about his relationship with UGK and even the rims on his Lambo, among other topics. Bruce Wayne has nothing on him. [In Jeezy’s raspy voice] Haaaaahaaaaa!
