"Crazy World" is the third official single from rapper Young Jeezy's third studio album, The Recession. Young Jeezy performed this song live at the BET Hip Hop Awards 2008.[1]

Background[edit]

The song was thought to be the second single from The Recession, but was later replaced by "Vacation" and was pushed to being the third single. In the song, Young Jeezy talks about the recession America is going through and how he thinks president George W. Bush is punishing America, and this song also talks about the late 2000s recession.

The music video was made and finished on October 25, 2008. The video was directed by Marc Klasfeld.[2] Young Jeezy said that he was going to make videos for all of his songs and this one would be the third one (it has now been replaced by My President as the third single). He also made a video for the song "Who Dat". The video premiered on Monday, November 17. The video was played repeatedly throughout the day on MTV2's Un-Leashed.[3]
