This week is a big one for Jeezy who is preparing for a Verzuz battle against Gucci Mane and the release of his The Recession 2 album. In anticipation of the latter, he released a new single that addresses a few rappers, including one of his former artists.
In “Therapy For My Soul,” the “Put On” emcee expresses his frustration with Freddie Gibbs — who was formerly signed to his CTE World label. The two have been on the outs for some time, but Gibbs called him “irrelevant” as recently as June.
“If One-Five wasn’t my dawg, I would’ve touched them/When that shit went down with Gibbs, I couldn’t trust ‘em,” Jeezy rapped. “Invested my hard-earned money, tied up my bread/But he gon’ try to tell you I’m flawed, that’s in his head/It’s happening just the way that I said it, good on your own/And if I’m honest nothin’ gangsta about you, leave this alone.”
Gibbs later responded to his former boss with a series a tweets, including one that urged The Recession rapper to “come harder.”
“BMF put u in a headlock in front of me,” he wrote. “U gotta come harder than this snow flake.” In another tweet, Gibbs penned, “@jeezy u big mad.” He then retweeted a video of Jeezy dancing in a grocery store aisle, adding the caption, “I can’t beef with nigga. U got it Snow. U won.”
“Therapy For My Soul” also confronts 50 Cent who once claimed Jeezy was ignoring BMF rapper Southwest T’s phone calls from prison ahead of his release.
“Since we talkin’ boss talk, let’s address the sucka shit/ Grown man playin’ on Instagram, real sucka shit, Why the fuck this clown nigga playin’ with my legacy?/ Solid in these streets, that’s some shit that you will never be,” Jeezy vented. “Talking ‘bout power, but weak niggas do the most/In real life, nigga you really borrow money from Ghost/ All that lil’ boy shit, yeah it make it evident/ Made millions in these streets, what the fuck is 50 Cent?”
50 Cent has yet to comment on Jeezy’s record.
