Being that this song was never fully pushed as the single it should have been for I believe which was to be B.G.’s Atlantic Records and Grand Hustle solo debut, it went a little under the radar for the average rap fan. This can often happen in the industry, where a very solid record doesn’t get the proper push, therefore not garnering it enough attention overall.
Not only is this a very respectable collaboration between the Chopper City legend, B.G. and the Snowman, Young Jeezy, but it is a great display of the #Taken concept, Jeezy completely made this song his own with his featured verse. Mr. 17.5 has a very deep rap catalog with many a great verse, but as far as his features go, this is an all-timer, in my opinion.
It’s quite a phenomenal song, B.G. did what he does, but Jeezy just came with a whole different energy. Check out “I Hustle” below, what did you think of Jeezy’s performance? A simple one-up job? Or classic Jeezy? Comment below. #YaDig
