Earlier this month, Jeezy released a new collaborative record called “Stripes” featuring newly signed Corporate Thugz Entertainment rapper Freddie Gibbs.

“We definitely talkin’ about the same gangsta topics, but I think that day we were bumpin’ some Run-DMC so we got into that stripe mode,” Gibbs said about the track, which was inspired by the popular 1980s rap group. The record was produced by Lodi, a beatmaker from Memphis who Jeezy has recently took under his wing. “He one of the coldest in the game right now and he’s doin’ a lot of work with CTE and we’re ready to get it in…The main thing, really, was my admiration I had for Jeezy and the respect I had for him…It definitely wasn’t about the money or any of that. I looked at what he does musically and what I do musically and I thought that he could take it to the next level.” (MTV)
