Jeezy says his collaborator got emotional when writing the verses based on his past as a drug dealer.
Jay-Z got emotional when he penned his verses for Young Jeezy's song called "Seen It All". Jeezy made the revelation, telling MTV that his collaborator said he shed tears as he wrote lines based on his past as a drug dealer.
"We got on the phone and [Jay] was like, 'Yo, Jeezy, when I was writing the verse I had tears in my eyes, man,' because it took him so far back to Marcy," Jeezy recalled having a phone conversation with Hova. "Every bar in that song was real - I put my hand on the bible."
"Seen It All" was produced by Cardo and was originally planned to be featured in Jay-Z's chart-topping album "Magna Carta... Holy Grail". The song then ended up becoming the title track of Jeezy's upcoming album which is scheduled to come out on September 2.
"This is gonna be your bible, this is gonna be your manual," Jeezy recently revealed what to expect from the new LP in an interview. "I'm not gonna tell you that everything gonna be okay, that everything's gonna be alright, but the moral to the story is never quit, never let up. A win is a win. That's what this album is about."
