When Jeezy put out The Recession it was before the giant global recession. And on that album, when he announced that his president was black, well, it was still a white man in the White House. Both of his pronouncements, though, were soon proven correct, as everyone lost their jobs, homes and confidence. Except for Obama, prediction number two, who got a sweet new job as our black president. Jeezy, maybe feeling touches of the recession himself (maybe his auntie snagged the yams he stashed) then got himself a deal as a Belvedere spokesman on the back of his incredibly overlooked album cut "Circulate" (itself based on Billy Paul's ’70s recession anthem "Let the Dollar Circulate"), which probably made him more cash than album sales did. Alcohol is one thing that's never effected by a downturn. Now, properly flush, Jeezy is trying to either coach you into getting as paid as he is, or trying to frighten you away from taking what little is left in the pot before he can horde it on his new track with Wayne, "Scared Money." Wayne just wants you to know he's not scared at all, like Bone Crusher. These two complement each other just fine.
