Bumping Jeezy first album looking distracted
Kendrick is referring to Jeezy’s first studio album, Let’s Get It: Thug Motivation 101, released in 2005. The thuggish theme of Jeezy’s music goes along with the attitude of Kendrick and his crew.
The album is referred to again in the outro of this song, when the crew recites the first line from “Trap or Die” on the album, “Last time I checked, I was the man on these streets!”
Important to note that this album totally represented the times. It’s 2005, “Soul Survivor” is playing on the radio every five minutes, kids are wearing baggy Fubu sweatsuits, freestying and smoking in their escalade. Kendrick portrays him and his homies not as the dopest cutthroat motherfuckin crew in Compton, but as one of thousands of crews in the ghetto, anywhere. So many people can relate to this experience.
Noteworthy as well that just before the release of GKMC, Kendrick collaborated with Jeezy on a song called Westside, Right on Time.
