LETS GET IT
Yup, this is the man who accidentally endorsed John McCain back in June (No disrespect to my man Barack, but I fuck with John McCain. He greeted me like a god). The Barack-big-upping My President, slated to appear on next weeks The Recession, should clear all that up; according to a recent video, the whole flapcoming as it did on the eve of Young Jeezys third albumfinally taught the veteran rapper the power of words. Hes had a good yeara spot on Ushers world-beating Love in This Club and a hot single, the Kanye-featuring Put On, thats already got a decent Jay-Z remixand though The Recession probably wont touch Lil Waynes Carter III, its safe to say that Jeezy wont have to mortgage the house anytime soon. Whether the record will be any good is another questionguys in his line of work arent exactly known for their skills at personal reinvention, and hes already one mediocre album past the debut that made him a star.
