New Music: Jeezy "American Dream" featuring J. Cole and Kendrick Lamar
The trio deliver rap justice.
From Puff Daddy to Rick Ross, 2 Chainz and more, Jeezy’s new album Pressure is already a star-studded affair.
Of course, the most anticipated track within the 13-song tracklist is “American Dream,” a Bilal-sampled number featuring Kendrick Lamar and J. Cole.
Over the SoundSmith production, Jeezy speaks his piece on the current political climate (“My president was black, now my president is wack”), while Cole delivers the song’s standout moment via a sharply-written verse. “Turn on the TV, see these niggas that trap on the CD’s, meanwhile, back home, my niggas sell crack in the BP,” he raps. Dropping thought-provoking jewels, his verse continues: “Cause that’s the American Dream, now here go the thing, listen / Hysterical screams, calls from mothers that buried their kings or the unbearable pain of watching them walk out the sheriff and chains, becoming a number they no longer care about their name…”
Meanwhile, Kendrick comes in following Cole, but those hoping for a “HiiiPower” demonstration may be disappointed as he delivers an interlude to close out the song. All in all, this is Kenny and Cole’s first credited collaboration since 2013’s “Forbidden Fruit.”
