Prince Williams/WireImageJeezy has premiered his “Sweet Life” video, featuring Janelle Monae, for the Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. holiday.
In the black-and-white clip, we see the Atlanta MC reading newspaper accounts about gun violence and a rise in young people going to prison. Referring to his previous arrests and his life on the street, Jeezy raps, “If I wasn’t a ghetto prophet, I’d still be movin’ the weight.”
The Snowman has a message of hope for those who are following the wrong path: “Count your tests and blessings ‘cause they’re all God-given/Like it’s the big magic question, how did I dodge prison? My sweet life.”
“Sweet Life” is the latest release from Jeezy’s 2015 CD, No Church in These Streets.
