Young Jeezy‘s first album in over three years is coming, and now it has a title and some new material.
In an interview with Atlanta’s V-103 (a Radio.com station), the rapper announced the title of his fifth studio album — Seen It All — and like many album titles, there’s meaning behind it.
“My fifth album is entitled Seen It All because I feel like I’ve been through a lot and I’ve seen a lot, and I’m still standing here and I’m still standing tall,” the rapper born Jay Jenkins said. “That’s what it is, man.”
The announcement follows the release of “Me OK,” a new song one would assume is on Seen It All, yesterday (May 8).
“Me OK” subscribes to the standard street-laced rap for which Jeezy’s come to be known over the last few years; he’s found a niche and he’s sticking to it with his new material, if the tune is any indication.
Of note is one quick stanza after the Drumma Boy-produced song’s chorus, which name-drops L.A Reid and more than a few record labels. “When L.A. Reid was in office / made some history up in Def Jam,” he spits. “If Jizzle ain’t droppin’, n—a, what the f— is Def Jam? / I know you heard how your boy bossed up at Atlantic / Boss s–t, might just drop my next album on Atlantic.”
Jeezy has made his opinions of Def Jam known; late last year, rumors spread that he might be leaving the label, and the lyrics of his new song seem to point toward growing discontent.
A release date for Seen It All has not yet been tendered.
