The Making of “Soul Survivor”

Like how it was for many, “Soul Survivor” was my first introduction to Young Jeezy and it quickly became a now sentimental favorite of my HS crew and I. I was up on Akon since his debut album so I was finding any song he was featured on at the time. One of the many hooks he killed was “Soul Survivor” but I was also intrigued by Jeezy’s gritty style and delivery.

With Jeezy dropping “God” yesterday and a new album on the way, Complex produced their latest Magnum Opus mini-doc around the making of “Soul Survivor”. Sit-downs with Jeezy, DJ Drama, and more above.
