Jeezy is not just here to participate in a Verzuz, he’s here to drop new music as well. Tonight, the Atlanta legend has delivered The Recession 2.
Released in 2008, the original project delivered musically and commercially. Leading the way with “Put On” featuring Kanye West, The Recession debuted at number one on the Billboard charts with 260,000 units sold in one week. Later on, Jeezy would push records like “Who Dat” and “My President with Nas.
Twelve years later, Jeezy has delivered the sequel. The Recession 2 will feature Rick Ross, Yo Gotti, E-40 and Ne-Yo. The project also has surprise guest appearances from Demi Lovato and Tamika Mallory.
Jeezy’s latest effort is led by a newly released single called “Therapy For My Soul.” On the new record, Jeezy seemingly takes shots at 50 Cent and Freddie Gibbs.
“If One-Five wasn’t my dawg, I would’ve touched them/When that sh*t went down with Gibbs, I couldn’t trust ’em/Invested my hard earn money, tied up my bread/But he gon’ try to tell you I’m flawed, that’s in his head,” Jeezy rapped.
“Talking ’bout power, but weak n*ggas do the most/In real life, n*gga you really borrow money from Ghost/All that lil’ boy sh*t, yeah it make it evident/Made millions in these streets, what the f*ck is 50 Cent?”
As expected, the rappers in question responded quickly after hearing the record. Freddie Gibbs told the Atlanta legend to come harder than that while 50 Cent has kept to himself. If we know anything about 50 Cent, he will respond sooner rather than later.
