Jeezy is now an elite veteran, respected in all circles. One might forget that he was one of the pioneers of trap, a genre that's now being run by the younger folks in his city. Yesterday, Jeezy announced a return to his roots by revealing that his next album would be the third installment in his beloved Trap or Die series. He's now gone ahead and shared the latest Trap or Die 3 single: "Let Em Know." The Snowman is back and Snow Season is officially in effect.
"Let Em Know" is definitely reminiscent of a Jeezy of yesteryear, bringing to mind tracks like "Mr. 17.5." The content is strictly thug motivation and the lyrics are delivered forcefully in an off-the-cuff manner. He really hits his stride when segueing into the hook, the most exhilarating part of the song. The production, sounding like it was taken from a stylish '80s fugitive movie, comes from Pay Cash.
Who's ready for Trap or Die 3?
Took it out the bag, mixed it with the yellow box
Went to sleep, woke up, in a yellow watch
Do better, and these n*ggas gon' hate more
You keep it solid, and these n*ggas gon' flake more
