Like how it was for many, “Soul Survivor” was my first introduction to Young Jeezy and it quickly became a now sentimental favorite of my HS crew and I. I was up on Akon since his debut album so I was finding any song he was featured on at the time. One of the many hooks he killed was “Soul Survivor” but I was also intrigued by Jeezy’s gritty style and delivery.
With Jeezy dropping “God” yesterday and a new album on the way, Complex produced their latest Magnum Opus mini-doc around the making of “Soul Survivor”. Sit-downs with Jeezy, DJ Drama, and more above.
Jeezy is the latest to drop a new project outta thin air and he waits til just now, late Friday night to do so with Gangsta Party below. 10 tracks with 2 Chainz, YG, and Rich Homie Quan among the features. Listen/DL:
Jeezy replaces A$AP Rocky and provides 2 new verses to the official remix for “Pretend”, one of Tinashe’s catchiest, most well-produced cuts off her debut album, Aquarius. Worthy of the add if you’re a fan of either.
When the first scene is Jeezy in a head to toe fur coat standing on top of a washing machine, I’m in. Maybe this clean, aesthetic look is reaching its boundary? Ha! Here’s the quick-hit “Black Eskimo” off Seen It All.
