When Jay-Z and Jeezy meet up on a track, the results are often rowdy and anthemic, from “Go Crazy” to “Real As it Gets.” But when Jay was asked to hop on the title track to Jeezy’s fifth album, the song’s been-there-done-that street hustler tales and eerie Cardo beat brought out some unexpected emotion as he recalled the deaths of his father and uncle. Jeezy told MTV News in 2014, “We got on the phone and [Jay] was like, ‘Yo, Jeezy, when I was writing the verse, I had tears in my eyes, man.’” Bawl so hard.
