It’s only been a couple weeks since we last heard “don’t call me Young” Jeezy, but considering the lukewarm response to his last feature Greatest Trapper Alive it’s probably for the best that the raspy-voiced emcee didn’t waste any time in taking another shot at Booth success with his new mixtape leak I’m Just Sayin’. For those who thought the Snowman’s been off his game as of late, Just Sayin’ should at least somewhat reassure loyal listeners. Sure, Sayin’ isn’t exactly a new school classic, but the beat by The Olympiks combines symphonic strings and pounding bass to head-nodding effect, and on the vocal side of the equation Jeezy serves up some solid, if not particularly inspired lyrics. I’m just sayin; did Geico really need two shout outs? Still, fans of Mr. Jeezy (including myself) should be happy to have him back on the proverbial block and I wouldn’t be at all surprised if this track gets some legitimate love in the Booth. Even if you aren’t feeling Sayin’, don’t worry, a boatload of new Jeezy’s on the way in the form of his new mixtape Trap Or Die II: By Any Means Necessary, set to drop Tuesday, May 4.
