"Go Crazy" is a song by rapper Young Jeezy released as the third single from his debut album Let's Get It: Thug Motivation 101. It was written by Young Jeezy, and was produced by Don Cannon. The CD single was released on August 30. The song samples the song "(Man, Oh Man) I Want To Go Back" by Curtis Mayfield.

Pitchfork Media listed it as the 359th best song of the 2000s.

Background[edit]

The instrumental was first used by rapper T.I. for a freestyle on his mixtape, Down With The King.[1] Jeezy ended up using the beat for his album. After, an extended version of the album version leaked online featuring Jeezy's original 3 verses, in addition to new verses by Jay-Z and Fat Joe.[2] The official single version used Jay-Z's verse from the extended version that leaked earlier, with the first and third verse from Jeezy's original album version.[3] It is rumored Fat Joe was removed due to the tensions between himself and Jay-Z. Later pressings of Jeezy's album replaced the original album version of the song with the single version.
