Jizzle

Songfacts®:

  • This is the first official single from TM 103, the fourth major-label studio album by the Atlanta rapper Jeezy - known at the time as Young Jeezy. The song was produced by longtime collaborator Shawty Redd and features the MC's fellow Atlanta artist Lil Jon.
  • During a conference call with DJs around the country, Jeezy discussed the song: "I had to get back in the lab and do what I do and that's keep the club and the streets just straight off the chain, and 'Jizzle' was all that," Jeezy said. "[Previous single] Lose My Mind' was like the appetizer. This is like the entrée plate and we gonna keep 'em coming after that."
    He added: "Me [and] Shawty Redd, we went in, banged out ... reached out to the homie Lil Jon just to put a little 'umph' on it, and we came out with that 'Jizzle,'"
  • Jeezy told MTV News about this street-friendly club banger: "'Jizzle' was my formula," he said. "It's like the music that I wanna hear when I'm in the club. I did that for my fans, before I even step out of my box, which I will for this album, as far as singles I wanted to do what I do. What comes to heart to me. And when I hear that [song], that's Jeezy, that's 'Jizzle.' Lil Jon was just the extra spice to give it a little different feel so it wouldn't just be a Jeezy record."
