Both Diddy and Jeezy have had long, fruitful years in the music industry. In the midst of the strife and turmoils that are impacting the world, it’s never a bad thing to show that artists are still having fun.
The video for "Bottles Up," a cut from Jeezy's upcoming album Pressure, is the epitome of positive energy and good vibes. There’s fast cars, beautiful boats, and an enormous stash of crisp green bills.
The anthem tailor-made for bosses, which Jeezy premiered back in October along with the Tee Grizzly-assisted "Cold Summer," features the 40-year-old rapper listing all of the fine things that come with the lavish life. Diddy, choosing to reinvent himself as the Puff Daddy of hip-hop’s Golden Age, plays Jeezy’s right hand man and ad-lib provider.
Seriously, he gets about as much screen time, if not more, than Jeezy and he doesn’t even have a verse. But what he leaves on the table in terms of raps, he picks up by providing the necessary energy for Jeezy to bounce off of. The match made in luxury heaven proceed to dance in clubs, on yachts, and in gas stations while holding cartoonishly large bundles of money.
Pressure, the follow-up to last year’s Trap Or Die 3, is set to drop on Dec. 15. The 13-track project is slated to feature guest appearances from 2 Chainz, J. Cole, Kendrick Lamar, Wiz Kid, Trey Songz, YG, Tory Lanez, Kodak Black, and Rick Ross. Sheesh.
