ATL trap veteran Jeezy released a solid effort with last fall’s Church In These Streets, perhaps his most versatile offering. Fresh off of recruiting Queensbridge purist Nas for the remix to lead single “God,” he gives his Janelle Monáe-assisted followup, “Sweet Life,” a set of visuals. Monáe lends her classy black-and-white aesthetic, as monochrome images of Jeezy in suspenders and tie contrast the lavishness he enjoys now versus the hardknock hustle life he is merely reading about in a fictional Atlanta newspaper. Paparazzi camera flashes and glamorous red carpet strolls look good as the bursts of light bounce off of Jeezy and Monáe, further juxtaposing the darkness and glamour of two disparate existences. Watch below.
Church In These Streets is out now on Def Jam.
