Crazy World

Album: The Recession (2008)

Songfacts®:

  • This track is about some of the crazy situations the Atlanta rapper finds himself in a world where he has riches to spare but can't save the whole world. Jeezy told Rolling Stone magazine that the song came out of him one day when he went into the studio to vent. He added: "The world is crazy. We know it and we're gonna deal with it. Where else are we gonna live? Jupiter?"
  • On this track Jeezy talks about a dilemma he had of wanting to buy a new sports car when his aunt needed a new kidney. He explained to MTV News why he put his family first. Said Jeezy: "That's Auntie who practically helped raise me. All she needs to survive is a kidney. Do you go to a lot and put $200,000 on a car, or do you put $200,000 in a foundation to help start something up to help her or anybody like her? That's a real-life conflict. If I get a call while I'm out on the road saying my auntie passed, that would mess my head up."
