[SOHH highlights a hot single each week and offers a unique look at the song. After new G-Unit signee Genasis breaks down his single "Jackie Chain", CTE spitter Freddie Gibbs explains why he and Jeezy decided to clique up for the track "2's & Fews".]
I thrive on being an artist that has the ability to do things in rap that we ain't seen in a long time. One minute you might see me doing a record with Dom Kennedy then [I] turn around and do a record with Young Jeezy. You know what I mean? I can fill different positions in the game and still be effective.
I think that's my strong point.
The track with me and Jeezy off my mixtape A Cold Day in Hell is called "2's and Fews" and it's dope. It's produced by this dope producer named SC, y'all look out for him. He got some heat.
It's a hard record ... this is a track that people are gonna definitely embrace. It's definitely a change-up and something different for Jeezy ... it's gonna kind of remind you of ... well, I ain't gonna tell you what it's gonna remind you of, but people are gonna f*ck with it.
I wanted to do something fresh with this record: We do alotta tracks with those hard-hittin' type beats and I wanted to come with a different kind of record from what people were used to hearing from us. SC passed me the track, I did my thing and it came out dope.
