Young Jeezy, ‘F.A.M.E.’ Feat. T.I. – Song Review
Rapper Young Jeezy addresses the haters who want to see him fail on the ambient-sounding 'F.A.M.E.' The song, which is acronym for 'Fake A-- M-----f-----s Envy,' features T.I. fresh from his jail bid. Both the Snowman and the Rubberband Man rap about the drawbacks of being the most publicized and criticized rappers in the game.
Jeezy seems highly perturbed by the haters as he spits, "F--- these haters, I’d kill them all if I could / Ain't scared of none of y’all, so you know my aim good." He then talks of dissension within his own camp. "Opened up a few squares, opened up a few tours / Just to show n----s keys open up doors / 'Oh, we don’t f--- with Young no more' / Why not? / The only thing I can figure, because he on top."
T.I., who has seen his share of hater-ation, speaks on his time away from the rap game and urges his critics not to feel sorry for him. "Another year in prison, promise this is it for me / Tryna make it through the storm / Should be makin’ history / No feelin’ sorry for me / Keep ya pity and ya sympathy / Good or bad, take it like a man, whatever meant for me," he raps.
The beat was produced by the J.U.S.T.I.C.E League and it knocks heavenly in our ears. But Jeezy's acidic lyrics makes the song oft-putting. At this point, hearing a rapper cry about haters has become annoying. This is not a shot at Jeezy; we understand his pain, but enough already.
As for 'F.A.M.E.,' it's a good teaser single for Young Jeezy’s oft-delayed fourth studio album, 'Thug Motivation 103: Hustlerz Ambition,' which doesn't have a release date as of yet.
