Jeezy has released his tenth studio album, The Recession 2, the sequel to 2008’s The Recession.
For the 15-track record, the Atlanta rapper enlisted a diverse cast of guest musicians, ranging from rappers like Yo Gotti and E-40, to pop star Demi Lovato and R&B crooner Ne-Yo. The record also includes appearances from Lil Duval and Rick Ross, as well as activist Tamika Mallory on opening track “Oh Lord.”
“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,” Jeezy told The Ringer.
“Four months ago, we was marching, looting, and having racial tension we never seen before,” he added. “It’s just a series of events, and then things just started to feel like they getting back to normal on top of the fact 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.”
The Recession 2 is the follow-up to Jeezy’s 2019 album, TM104: The Legend of the Snowman. Stream his new release below:
