On the title track to Jeezy’s Seen It All album, he and Jay Z rap about their days as hustlers, before they both shot to stardom.
Apparently, writing the verses to the song wasn’t an easy task for Jay Z, who Jeezy says was brought to tears when recounting his past.
“[Jay] was like, ‘Yo, Jeezy, when I was writing the verse, I had tears in my eyes, man,” because it took him so far back to Marcy,” the ATL rap star tells MTV. “Every bar in that song was real. I put my hand on the Bible. I told myself when I wrote that record. Everything in this song gotta be true to me…He did the same thing.”
Jeezy says Jay Z sent his verse back within 30-40 minutes.
