The snowman is back! Twelve years after dropping his project, The Recession, Jeezy returns with a proper sequel. This past Friday, the wordsmith released ‘The Recession 2,’ a new collection of material that is packed full of impressive new material. Jeezy opened up about the project with the Ringer recently.
Jeezy stated: “Four months ago, we were marching, looting, and having racial tension we never seen before.” He went on to add, “On top of that, we had a pandemic. I’ve never been through one of those before. Then we had some different leadership, as far as the whole presidential situation.” Jeezy went on to say that “It was just a lot of different turmoil. It just really inspired me to touch on some of that, but at the same time, motivate my people and give them something to help them through these times and to celebrate, because the shift is happening. Things are happening, but not to forget about the moment, because it’s been surreal for even me.” He continued, “When I wrote the last Recession, we were celebrating. Barack Obama was coming into office. Things were different. It wasn’t this bad. So this is a different feel.”
The new album comes loaded with fifteen new tracks with features from a who’s who of artists. Jeezy is joined by the likes of Rick Ross, Ne-Yo, E-40, Lil Duval, Demi Lovato, and Tamika Mallory. Some of our favorites include “Here We Go,” “Da Ghetto” with E-40, “The Glory” featuring Ne-Yo, and “Therapy For My Soul.” Jeezy put together a solid collection of material on this one.
