Yesterday, Jeezy launched the first episode of his podcast called “The (Re)Session Podcast”. Like everyone else, you are probably wondering what will he discuss on this limited 8-episode series. Then your next thought may be is it on instructions on how to bake goods? or Maybe how to hustle in the streets? To answer your question, Jeezy, who is no longer ‘young’ Jeezy, is taking a more refined approach. While bringing up the topics of mental health, economics, prison reform, police brutality, grief, systemic racism, community, and spirituality, we will be well informed on his thought and standpoint. This has been a move for various artists in the industry to see them outside of the character they portray (whether true or exaggerated) and hear how they view and cope with everyday struggles (no pun intended). Since his engagement to Jeannie Mai, it is no surprise that he felt inspired to speak more and do the podcast.
Other events that have been announced since we gained knowledge on the podcast was we have a Verzuz Battle underway on November 19th. We will watch JEezy go against fellow Atlanta rapper, T.I. Just when you thought it couldn’t get any better, Jeezy also announced that his 10th studio album is coming November 20th. The name of this album will be THE RECESSION 2. Not only is this perfect because it IS also the name of the podcast which markets to new listeners easily, but this is also the second part to his THE RECESSION album. This 2008 album debuted at number one on the US Billboard 200, selling 260,000 copies in its first week. While we are anticipating the Verzuz battle, we can also look forward to this new album to hopefully give us the same feel as the previous album stated.
