Young Jeezy “My President” (2008)

Where to start? I’m sure a lot of people wish the first Obama victory song was by Jay-Z, Kanye, Common, or someone of the like. Instead, they must settle for Young Jeezy and an unusually ignorant  Nas verse…

“My President” was actually recorded before Obama’s victory, and was featured on The Recession, but the song took on new meaning when election night was over.

The synth orchestra beat is fittingly triumphant, but who told Young Jeezy that talking about your Lamborghini and its rims prominently in the song would have any positive repercussions?

To his credit, Jeezy addresses the war in Iraq, army recruiting tactics, and Bush’s presidency in the song, but cursing up a storm doesn’t seem right on a song detailing a moment of so much cultural and racial importance.

Nas, on the other hand, completely drops the ball. With one of his corny double-time verses (remember when it was cool for New York rappers to do this on southern hip-hop beats… yeah, that was like in 1996), Nas drops corny and cringe-worthy lines in rapid succession. It’s usually hard for Nas to be outshined on songs, but Jeezy didn’t have to try very hard to do so.

Which is also strange, considering Nas’s most recent album (which is untitled because it’s original name was the n-word, and that didn’t fly) was full of politically charged rhymes.

    hilarious… dead on target about nas’s 96 flow, he killed the song and not in a good way. he cornified it to the nth degree.

    nas is best as like a thoughtful reflective type of rapper, I dont think he should do joints like this.
