Young Jeezy is at a very good place in his life. For what feels ike the first time ever, the trap god seems to be at ease with his career and personal life. Last night (July 10), the Snowman invited Missinfo.TV to come preview 10 new songs that he cooked up for his forthcoming 5th studio album, Seen it All, and boy was he in a good mood. Keeping the producers to just a few select names –Chidlish Major, Mike WiLL and Cardo — Jeezy was able to cultivate a cohesive sound while having a lot of diversity on the project. He noticeably steps out of his comfort zone throughout the LP, and creeps a couple blocks past the trap on songs like “Addicted” and “No Tears.”
Production-wise, Hov’s former A&R Kyambo “Hip-Hop” Joshua helped Jeezy find just the right sounds to satisfy his core fans while keeping up to date with the ever evolving rap world. On the album, fans get to take in a new perspective on life from the man formerly known as Mr. 17.5.
Even Jeezy admits that it’s been quite some time since he was whipping up work in the kitchen and he wants to share what he’s gained during that transition. Seen it All will showcase Jeezy utilizing auto-tune like never before, his ability to chart new waters sonically and his permanent drive to please the fans that have been riding since day one. After one listen, here are my initial reactions to the new songs he played us.
