Jeezy Reflects on His Drug-Slingin’ Past in ‘Holy Ghost’: Listen

By Marissa G. Muller

Jeezy is living up to the title of his new album Seen It All in the latest track he’s shared, “Holy Ghost.”

Over a sputtering Don Cannon and Lyle LeDuff-produced beat, the gravelly-voiced rapper recalls dealing drugs, losing his friends, and hustling his way to the top. It’s a more reflective portrait of Jeezy than we’re used to seeing.

“Holy Ghost” is also in part celebratory, with Jeezy promising to make the most out of his success on the hook: “And ain’t nobody gave us nothin’, so we drug dealin’/ You know we coppin’ Louie loafers just to thug in ‘em /And when you made it that far, you should be makin’ a toast/ Got the seats reclined and I be doin’ the most.”

Jeezy’s Seen It All arrives Sept. 2 on Def Jam. It also features contributions from Rick Ross and The Game — on “Beautiful,” which surfaced earlier this month — Future and Jay Z, who was moved to tears when writing his verse about his past for the Cardo-produced track, which was allegedly supposed to appear on Jay’s Magna Carter Holy Grail but didn’t make the cut.
