Jeezy Teases ‘Snofall’ Collabs With Kanye West, Rihanna & More In New Documentary
The Atlanta rapper shared part one of a documentary on the project called The Making of Snofall on Instagram on Monday (October 17), which captures him cooking up in the lab with J.U.S.T.I.C.E. League, the production team behind “F.A.M.E.,” “Bury Me a G” and “Word Play.”
The tracklist features 13 songs, including a track called “Michael Jackson Jeezy.” However, it’s unclear whether the tracklist is final.
Jeezy announced Snofall earlier this month as a collaboration with DJ Drama and DJ Cannon, with the project set to be released on Friday (October 21).
Jeezy previously collaborated with Rihanna on “Hard” from her 2009 album Rated R, while teaming up with Kanye West on “Put On” from The Succession and “Amazing” from 808s & Heartbreak in 2008.
His vocals also famously appeared on Kanye’s hit single “Can’t Tell Me Nothing” from 2007’s Graduation album. Speaking to HipHopDX in 2019, Jeezy explained how the song came about.
“‘Get My Money Right’ was a song with me and T.I. for my album The Recession,” he said. “I sent it to Ye, [he] put a verse on it, but Ye wanted to know who produced the record. So I told him DJ Toomp produced the record. So somehow, he got in contact with DJ Toomp and changed his whole sonics on his verse.
“So when he sent it back, I’m just like, ‘Yo man, it’s a whole different song. I gotta turn my album in in two days, I can’t…’ He was just like, ‘I’m telling you, it’s crazy.’ I was just like, ‘Yo, I just can’t use it.’ So I never used it.”
The CTE boss continued: “Time goes by, six months later, I’m in L.A., [Kanye] calls me to come to the studio, he wanted to play me something. He played me ‘Wait ‘Til I Get My Money Right,’ which is the same song and same verse that he sent me, he just added another verse to it.
“Then he asked me, ‘Yo, can I keep your ad-libs?’ I was like, ‘You know what, you can. It’s cool.’ ‘Get My Money Right’ came out in a hit for him. I was just like, ‘Damn, I just gave Ye a hit record.’”
Jeezy’s last album The Recession 2 was released in November 2020. The project featured Rick Ross, Yo Gotti, E-40 and more, and debuted at No. 19 on the Billboard 200 with roughly 28,000 total album-equivalent units in its first week.
