O.T. Genasis – “CoCo (Remix)” (Feat. Meek Mill & Jeezy)

The Long Beach, California rapper O.T. Genasis' churning, brash-as-fuck drug-rap anthem "CoCo" is one of the defining rap bangers of the last few months, despite the fact that it has barely any rapping on it. Instead, it has yelling, the sort of delivery a monster track like this requires. And on the new remix, Genasi… More »

Dej Loaf – “Try Me (Remix)” (Feat. Jeezy & T.I.)

The Detroit rapper Dej Loaf is currently getting famous on the strength of her twinkling head-buster hit "Try Me," though her great Sell Sole mixtape proves that there's more to her than that. "Try Me" already had a remix, with guest spots from Ty Dolla $ign and Remy Ma. But now she's moved… More »

Jeezy’s Weapons Charges Dismissed

Back when Jeezy's Seen It All hit the internet, we noted that the Atlanta rap fixture had been arrested on charges of possessing illegal assault weapons during his tour with Wiz Khalifa. Thankfully, the allegations against Jeezy didn't pan out. TMZ reports that a California court dismissed the charges this morning due to lack… More »

DJ Drama – “Right Back” Video (Feat. Jeezy, Young Thug & Rich Homie Quan)

A couple of months ago, DJ Drama shared "Right Back," the star-studded, propulsive lead single off of his upcoming Quality Street Music 2. Although there's still no word on a release date for the album, there's now a Be El Be-directed video, which shows the Atlanta crew having a good time as only those… More »

Jeezy – “Link Up” (Feat. Beenie Man & Ty Dolla $ign) (Prod. DJ Mustard)

Jeezy is the guy who signed YG, so it would've made sense if he'd gone in on the glittering, minimal DJ Mustard tracks on his last album Seen It All. Instead, Jeezy stuck with the thundering Atlanta churn that brought him into the game, and he sold a whole pile of records in the process. More »

Watch Jeezy & Future Dedicate “No Tears” To Joan Rivers On The Tonight Show

Joan Rivers was a frequent guest on The Tonight Show, going all the way back to the mid-'60s Jack Paar era, and so the show obviously had to pay her tribute on the night she died. But I'm pretty sure nobody expected that tribute would take the form of Jeezy telling the crowd to put… More »

Jeezy – “Holy Ghost (Remix)” (Feat. Kendrick Lamar)

The not-so-young-anymore Jeezy's Seen It All dropped yesterday, and today he followed that with a remix of single "Holy Ghost." When posting the original, Tom noted the song is a rare departure into "thoughtful, introspective mode," which makes it the perfect Jeezy song for a Kendrick Lamar guest verse. Listen below. More »

Stream Jeezy Seen It All

Atlanta drug-rap motivational speaker Jeezy has now made five proper studio albums, as well as a neverending string of mixtapes. As far as the album-albums go, all of them are good, and a couple of them are great. Seen It All, Jeezy's latest, is more in the "good" column than in the "great" one, but… More »

Jeezy – “No Tears” (Feat. Future) Video

Atlanta rap fixture Jeezy releases his new album "Seen It All" in a couple of days, and he's already shared a bunch of its songs: "Me OK," the title track, "Beautiful," "Holy Ghost." But when I went to a listening session for the album last month in New York, the song… More »

Jeezy – “Holy Ghost”

Atlanta stomp-rap champion Jeezy rarely goes into thoughtful, introspective mode, but that's sort of what happens on "Holy Ghost," his new song about recognizing the unlikeliness of his own rise. Jeezy's new album Seen It All is a couple of weeks away from release, and this is the fourth song we've heard from it after… More »

Jeezy – “Beautiful” (Feat. The Game & Rick Ross)

Atlanta's formerly-young Jeezy has built up a durable 10-year catalog mostly by rapping about the triumphs and stresses of the drug trade over tense, gothic, monolithic production. But on "Beautiful," a song from his forthcoming album Seen It All, he goes a different direction, rapping about getting used to the idea that you're living well,… More »

Jeezy – “Me OK” Video

When I was in New York a few weeks ago, I ended up at a listening party for Seen It All, the new album from Young Jeezy (or, as he'd now prefer to be known, just Jeezy). I happened to be wearing all black that day, and Jeezy told me I was "G'ed up." If… More »

Jeezy – “Seen It All” (Feat. Jay Z)

Young Jeezy got one of his first big career looks when Jay-Z rapped his ass off on a remix of Jeezy's street hit "Go Crazy" way the hell back in 2005, and Jeezy and Jay have appeared on tracks together a handful of times since the. The no-longer-young Jeezy has a new album called… More »

The Week In Pop: Is Me. I Am Mariah… The Elusive Chanteuse As Ridiculous As Expected?

I was prepared to ridicule Me. I Am Mariah... The Elusive Chanteuse mercilessly. The title is preposterous, obviously; nobody says "chanteuse" except music critics too lazy to spend 15 seconds on thesaurus.com, and no one who spent part of this album's gestation period judging American Idol can really be described as "elusive." Then there wa… More »

Jeezy – “Me OK”

It's been nearly a decade since Young Jeezy gave us his game-changing Trap Or Die mixtape, so it makes sense that he's recently dropped the "Young" from his name. But it's remarkable how Jeezy's churning triumphant street-rap hasn't changed over the years, keeping its vigor and energy as well as its basic sound. O… More »

Watch YG Play Kimmel With Jeezy & DJ Mustard

YG just released My Krazy Life, easily the best rap album of 2014 thus far, and he exists at the forefront of the West Coast's ratchet movement sound. He is a fully-formed new rap star, but he's not yet a great live show. I saw that for myself at SXSW last week, and he… More »

Rick Ross – “War Ready” (Feat. Jeezy) Video

Rick Ross's new album Mastermind tends to sag under the weight of its own opulence, but it finds one of its few moments of true shout-along catharsis with "War Ready," a six-minute shout-along death-threat anthem that unites Ross with former foe Jeezy. Now, that track gets an appropriately low-budget and violent video. The… More »

Que – “OG Bobby Johnson (ATL Remix)” (Feat. T.I. & Jeezy)

One of the biggest street-rap hits of the young year is "OG Bobby Johnson," a lurching and ominous number from the Atlanta rapper Que. For the brand-new remix, Que has lined up verses from two of the biggest rap stars in his hometown, T.I. and Jeezy, who is apparently no longer Young. The song… More »

Rick Ross – “War Ready” (Feat. Young Jeezy)

It took Rick Ross a while to put together his new album Mastermind, and of all its prospective early singles, the only one that's going to appear on the proper album is the hard-as-hell Jay Z collab "The Devil Is A Lie." But the album is finally coming together, and it's set to feature… More »

Future – “Sh!t (ATL RMX)” (Feat. Pastor Troy, Jeezy, & T.I.)

Yesterday, Future released one remix of his absolute banger "Sh!t," and it was a good one, featuring an angry and tough-sounding Drake issuing what sounded like a Kendrick Lamar response and Juicy J sounding more like Project Pat than he usually does. Today, Future's got another "Sh!t" remix, and this one's completely packed… More »
