Jeezy Reflects on the Past in “Sweet Life” Video Featuring Janelle Monae
Jeezy has been quietly enjoying the new year, but now he gets back in hustle mode dropping the new video for the song "Sweet Life."
In the black-and-white visual the Atlanta rapper cleans up nice. While reading the paper he reflects on his time as a youth and how he was able to get out of the street life through music. Janelle Monae makes an appearance in the video belting out the soulful chorus (above).
Jeezy enjoyed a successful 2015 that saw him drop albums in consecutive years for the first time since 2006. Church In These Streets debuted at No. 4 on the US Billboard 200 with 107,000 equivalent album units and first week sales of 98,000 copies in the United States.
Last year was also the 10-year anniversary of Pastor Young's major label solo debut Let's Get It: Thug Motivation 101. In July, he had a commemorative concert in Atlanta to celebrate the classic LP. The sold out show featured T.I., DJ Drama, Bun B, OutKast, Usher and Kanye West, and reunited his former group, Boyz N Da Hood.
