Jeezy, ‘Bottles Up’ | Track Review
More than a decade into his career, Jeezy continues to bring the heat on his latest single, “Bottles Up,” featuring Puff Daddy.
There’s lots to respect about Jeezy. He’s remained consistent throughout this rap career, never compromising with an array of trends and new movements. No, he’s remained a ‘G’ throughout, and that’s exactly what suits him. After dropping Trap or Die 3 quietly in 2016, Jeezy returns with two new singles: “Cold Summer” and “Bottles Up.” Puff Daddy assists him on “Bottles Up.”
Jeezy doesn’t miss a beat on “Bottles Up.” He’s turned up to the nth degree – confident as ever. He’s supported by a superb backdrop, which includes the standard, hard-hitting trap percussion, some synths, but most surprisingly, piano. In fact, it’s the piano chords that catch one’s ear. He does his job by serving up biting rhymes to match the excellent production work. As always, his rhymes are jam-packed with game and swagger. His flow remains top-notch as well – no complaints. As for Puff Daddy, he serves the role as the hype man, providing ad-libs that ‘fuel the fire.’
Ultimately, there’s not a lot to say about “Bottles Up” – it is a club banger. This isn’t a game changing record and no one expects it to be. At this point, Jeezy has proven himself in the game, and his consistency is amazing. “Bottles Up” won’t go down as a classic, but it is a well-rounded, worthwhile banger if nothing else.
