Hear Young Jeezy’s ‘Benihana’ featuring Rocko and 2 Chainz
More Hip-Hop/R&B News
If Young Jeezy’s newest music off his forthcoming mixtape #ItsthaWorld Vol. 2, set for release Nov. 27, is any indication, the trap rapper — with such radio hits under his belt as “Soul Survivor” and “Love in This Club”— is coming out of recent dormancy with renewed vigor.
Over the last week or so, Jeezy has released a string of new music on his Corporate Thugz Entertainment label’s Soundcloud, culminating most recently in “Benihana”, a clicky, driving cut featuring Rocko and 2 Chainz.
The #ItsthaWorld Vol. 2 mixtape tides listeners over while Def Jam Records keeps Jeezy’s as-yet-untitled full length in limbo. According to the rapper’s verified Twitter, the label has taken two years to get it out to the public and he’s not happy about it.
Jeezy seemed to go as far as suggest that he’d leak the album if Def Jam didn’t step up, much like M.I.A. did with her label Interscope in August.
The vibrancy of these new tracks speak for themselves, Jeezy’s tried of waiting. After his Twitter screed, Jeezy shared a link to “Foul Play”, a record that seems pointed, if indirectly, at Def Jam.
