Album Review | Jeezy – Seen It All: The Autobiography

It’s pretty refreshing to listen to an album like this, especially after listening to that Kirko Bangz project. I like Jeezy, but I’ve never been a huge fan of him. I like some of his music, but not all of it. For some reason, I’m actually really excited about this project. I guess it’s because i’ve liked almost every single that I’ve heard from it. Hopefully I’m not disappointed.

Track 1: 1/4 Block (Prod. Childish Major)

This beat is dope. The hook is average for Jeezy. His flow is cool. This is nothing you haven’t already heard from him, but that isn’t really a problem in my opinion. I don’t need to hear Jeezy rappin’ about political shit & especially not Drake shit… 4/5

Track 2: What You Say (Prod. Childish Major)

This beat is average. This is kind of a boring track. Average flow, average beat, average hook… Not bad, but not anything special. 3/5

Track 3: Black Eskimo (Prod. Cardo & Johnny Juliano)

This beat is average, but he’s fuckin’ killin’ these verses. The hook’s cool. This is dope. 4/5

Track 4: Enough (Prod. Kenoe)

I don’t wanna hear Jeezy sing, but it’s not too bad here. He barely sings at all. He just shouldn’t do it more than this. This beat is dope af. Yeah, he’s kinda singin’ on the hook, but it ain’t that bad. The hook is dope. I fuck with this. 4/5

Track 5: Holy Ghost (Prod. Don Cannon, Lyle LeDuff & Frank Dukes)

Holy Ghost

This song was my shit when it first came out. And then K. Dot’s remix just made it better. This dark beat is dope af. Jeezy sounded kinda weird on it at first, but it’s pretty easy to get used to. I really like the way that grainy sound fades in right before the hook. It’s like my eardrums are being poked by a bunch of tiny needles. Except it feels good. The hook is alright. Nothin’ special. It’s kinda weird to hear Jeezy make a sad song like this that doesn’t glorify water whippin’, but I like it. If you get a chance, you should listen to the remix with Kendrick. It’s dope af. The first time I heard this song, I said to myself “Damn, that nigga Jeezy a real ass nigga.” I didn’t actually say that, but that’s pretty much what I was thinking. 5/5

Track 6: Me OK (Prod. Drumma Boy)

Me Ok

This is the only single that I didn’t really like when it first came out. I thought that the way the beat started made it sound incomplete. It sounded to me like they cut the intro to the song out. It wasn’t that big of a deal, so I could get over it, but the beat itself just wasn’t that good to me. It sounded like a generic trap beat to me. The whole song sounded generic to me. I actually like the beat now tho. I really like the way the horns fade in at the beginning and the way the track starts doesn’t really bother me anymore. I did just watch the video for this song and the intro is in there. I guess they really did cut it out for the actual song, but i just don’t care anymore. The hook is dope. I feel like this could’ve used a guest feature. I know Gucci had a “wopmix“, but that was really poorly mixed. Also, it was Gucci Mane, so it doesn’t really count. The song isn’t bad tho. I fuck with this. 4/5

Track 7: 4 Zones (Prod. Mike WiLL Made It)

Hopefully this beat is better than the shit we got on Ransom. OK, this beat is definitely better than anything that was on that mixtape. Damn, Jeezy usin’ autotune. It actually isn’t that bad. He isn’t overdoing it. OK, he’s finally rappin’ now. He was kinda rappin’ before the autotuned hook, but that was just an intro. It feels like it takes kinda long for the verse to start, but it isn’t too bad. This hook could definitely be better, but it isn’t terrible. This is dope af. 5/5

Track 8: Been Gettin’ Money Feat. Akon (Prod. Childish Major)

Oh God, not Akon. Hopefully he isn’t that bad on this. This beat is dope af. Jeezy flow is on point. Yeah, Akon’s hook isn’t too bad. This is dope. This song is obviously about gettin’ money just like every other mainstream Hip Hop song (I’m exaggerating), but he does a really good job making that kind of song. I fuck with this. 4/5

Track 9: Fuck The World Feat. August Alsina (Prod. No I.D. & Trakmatik)

That nigga August be hittin’ them notes. Any singer coulda did what he did on this track tho. This isn’t really the kinda song I wanna hear from Jeezy. It’s not a bad song; it’s just not for me. The beat isn’t bad. Sounds like a Chris Brown beat. Average flow from Jeezy. Average hook. It’s alright. 3/5

Track 10: Seen It All Feat. JAY-Z (Prod. Cardo)

Seen It All

This beat is fucking insane. Jeezy was dope. This beat is dope af tho. JAY-Z snapped on this. That beat is fuckin’ crazy. i don’t really fuck with JAY-Z like that, but he was gettin’ busy on this one. That beat tho.

DAT BEAT THOOOOOO

The hook is dope. This beat is amazing. Cardo made the best beat on the whole album so far. JAY-Z apparently cried when he was writing his verse for this song and that’s fucking hilarious. Just imagine what that would sound like. Anyway, this song is dope af. 5/5

Track 11: Win Is A Win (Prod. Black Metaphor)

This beat is dope. His flow isn’t bad. OK, the song is ending. I guess that’s just an interlude because it’s less than two minutes long. It’s dope tho. 4/5

Track 12: Beautiful Feat. Game & Rick Ross (Prod. Black Metaphor)

Beautiful

I feel like I’ve heard this sample used a thousand times before, but this beat is still dope af. Jeezy did his thing. Game fuckin’ killed it tho. “Fuckin’ European models, skin white as Marilyn Manson.” Rick Ross actually wasn’t that bad. I feel like they all fit really well on this track together. I would be completely OK with them forming a group. Maybe take out Ross… That would actually be dope af. The hook was dope. I’m surprised by how good Jeezy sounded over a smooth beat like this. This song is dope af. 5/5

Track 13: Beez Like Feat. Lil Boosie (Prod. Will-A-Fool)

Not really feelin’ this beat. This hook is not good. It’s actually pretty terrible. We got Jeezy singin’. His verse ain’t that bad. This song is pretty corny to me. I’ve never really been a fan of Lil Boosie, but his verse was actually pretty dope here. “Daughter just had her period, I ain’t there for her.” That’s kind of a weird line tho. Aren’t the mothers the ones who usually take care of things like that? I mean if it was his son having a wet dream it would be another story, but if you’re a father, you leave it to the mother to explain what’s happening to your DAUGHTER during puberty. I mean it’s not like Boosie goes through the menstrual cycle every month, so he can’t really relate. There is no way that Boosie understands menstruation more than his baby mama. She should be the one explaining it. This hook is just bad. I can’t fuck with this song. 2/5

Track 14: No Tearz Feat. Future (Prod. Mike WiLL Made It)

“Yeah, put your lighters up.” I’m only 5 seconds in and I can tell that this song is about to be corny as fuck. Why the fuck do people do that? That shit is corny af. If I’m at a concert and everybody starts holdin’ they lighter up, I’m leaving. If you put your lighter up at concerts then we ain’t friends. And I’d rather not have Future yelling “WHERE DA LOVE AT” in autotune, right in my fuckin’ ear. This beat is corny. Nobody wanted this song from Jeezy. If you’re buying this album, you weren’t planning on hearing some shit like this. Future’s hook is awful. This song is ass. It’s like Future is sitting on the side of my head (ass naked), and wiggling on my ear. It’s just ass. Asshole in my ear. Fuck you, Future. 1/5

Track 15: How I Did It (Perfection) (Prod. Black Metaphor)

Wow I just realized that the shit I said about Future up there sounded gay as fuck… This beat is dope af. Jeezy flow is dope. This song is smooth af. I fuck with this. This is so much better. Damnit, that shit with Future was so wack. 5/5

Final Thoughts:

This album was pretty dope. It definitely got worse towards the end, but it was still pretty good. The main reason I wasn’t feelin’ the songs that I wasn’t feelin’ was because of the features. I think… The beat for Beez Like was pretty wack. Everything about No Tearz was wack. I feel like he wouldn’t have done any songs like these if it weren’t for Future & Lil Boosie (I’m never calling him Boosie Badazz. That shit is just stupid. The only rapper who is allowed to have “badass” in his name is Joey Bada$$. And I don’t even really like that name either). This album was definitely worth listening to. It would have been dope if he gave YG or Doughboyz Cashout a feature. YG got a feature on one of the bonus tracks, Addicted. That song was dope af. It had T.I. on it too. That song would’ve gotten a 5/5 if I reviewed the deluxe edition, but I don’t wanna hear the Kelly Rowland track. I saw what she did on that Pusha T album and I don’t want it to ruin this one for me. Jeezy shoulda swapped out No Tearz for Addicted. No Tearz is a much deeper song I guess, but I don’t care because that shit was terrible.

Favorite Track: Beautiful

Least Favorite Track: No Tearz

Verdict:

77%

HOTTTTT
