Black flags will definitely be raised in the air for this gangstarific track from Jeezy and his U.S.D.A. cohorts. Flanked by Boo Rossini and a very motivated-sounding Trick Daddy, Black Dreams finds these trappers-turned-rappers giving nightmares to anyone who wishes to test them. Although Jeezy and his team usually thrive over those dark and moody beats, producer Helluva doesn’t give a helluva effort behind the boards—with a trite choir, gun click, and snare-driven beat, this isn’t the song that dreams are made of. Blood Raw, Slick Pulla and Rossini have some pretty throwaway verses, as well. In the end, the streets will – no doubt – soak up this latest game from rap’s most inspired motivator and his team. Another single choice may make their next album, Shield Gang, match up to their gold-selling debut, Cold Summer.
