Great first effort from Jeezy and Gibbs, but it’s hard to enjoy this shit unreservedly when Rick Ross (someone that Jeezy seems not to like and essentially came into the game as a Jeezy clone) has essentially cornered the market on Lex Luger-ish beats (we see you biting Lil’ Lody – pause and stop that) and hooks that reference some iconic character. First, there was ‘Ballin’ with the original Lex Luger beat reconstructed by Lil’ Lody, now this. I’m a big Jeezy and Gibbs fan (some might say Gibbs stan – pause?), but this shit should be beneath them. Someone in that studio should have said something. I mean, what are weed-carriers for (other than carrying weed of course)? But whatever.
Freddie gets a pass, after all he can’t just turn down work offered by his new ‘boss’, but Jeezy should know better. Jeezy should stick to what he did on The Recession and Trap or Die 2. If he feels the need to experiment, maybe Gibbs can hand over The Blockbeataz’s contact info. The Blockbeataz take enough creative risks to make Jeezy do some interesting shit again. In any event, staying away from Lil’ Lody’s Lex Luger impressions should be top on his list.
(Damn, that was kinda salty. I’m still a fan, I swear).
