Strippers and A Dude With No Teeth: On Young Jeezy’s “Welcome Back” Video


Probably the most underrated song off Young Jeezy’s slightly underrated The Recession gets a video. Sort of. This YouTube mash-up reminiscent tour through various Jeezy concerts, cars, tour buses, and parking lots doesn’t have much to it besides a stripper in an obligatory halo of cash and a brief shot of a couple of bricks helpfully labelled ‘PERU.’ The director, Gabriel Hart, directed Jeezy’s “My President” video, too–a bright colored and cleverly assembled block party that now looks like the work of an entirely different, more talented man. What passes for jokes here: giving the song’s best yeeaaahh ad-lib to a yawning toothless vagrant. [Splash]
