Jeezy has released his latest video for “Sweet Life” through CNN. Made in conjunction with Janelle Monae, “Sweet Life” was originally featured as a track on his most recent studio album Church In These Streets. The video for the song is directed by Matt Barnes, who has worked with other major label artists like Snoh Aalegra. Speaking to CNN about the clip, Jeezy expressed the following:
Ever since I came into this music game, I’ve tried to make motivational music, whether you’re on the corner hustling or in the corner office making power moves. “Sweet Life” is no different, but it’s a bit more of a personal track because I rap about my own trials and tribulations. I wanted this video, with Janelle Monáe, to show what could have happened to me and does happen to African Americans every day.
