Lead by two singles, “Me Ok” and “Seen It All,” the album gives us a glimpse into the streets that raised Jeezy. Along for the ride are some of music’s biggest names, including, Jay Z, Rick Ross, Future, The Game, August Alsina, Lil Boosie and Akon. With his last four albums receiving platinum and gold certifications, there’s a lot of pressure on Jeezy to go hard and he does just that. He doesn’t stray from the gritty and hardcore style that has made him essential in the rap world.
Jeezy slightly switches up his style for the song “Enough,” a song about people trying to rob us of our successes. If you try hard enough, you can do anything you want, Jeezy ensures us on the track.
A standout on the album is the song “Holy Ghost.” Jeezy reminisces about how he used to lust for alcohol and women back in the days when he didn’t have anything.
A rap album wouldn’t be complete without at least one love song and R&B newcomer August Alsina joins Jeezy for the track “Fuck the World.” They’re both looking for a girl they can fuck the world with, whatever that means.
Another standout on the album is the Future-assisted “No Tears,” a song about losing friends. I mean, how many people can relate?
What Seen It All: The Autobiography lacks in diversity, it makes up for in heart. The album reminds us exactly we love the brutal honesty and street anthems that Young Jeezy has consistently delivered over the years. It just wouldn’t be right if he changed up his style too much. This is a great album to ride around with your crew.
