In the midst of ongoing divorce reports, Atlanta-based rapper Jeezy has made a bold statement through his latest album, “I Might Forgive… But I Don’t Forget,” released on November 3. The album’s standout track, “Don’t Cheat,” delves into his personal experiences, including his breakup with Jeannie Mai, asserting a strong message – “real n***as don’t cheat.”
The song “Don’t Cheat” showcases Jeezy’s heartfelt reflections on his breakup with Jeannie Mai, underscoring the importance of loyalty and commitment in relationships. In the song’s lyrics, he implores his partner to stand by his side during challenging times, emphasizing that true individuals do not stray. Lines like, “Tell me you gon’ hold it down baby girl ’cause this shit ain’t for the weak/ Nah, real n***as don’t cheat/ I be out here getting paper while you sleep/ Once again, ’cause real n***as don’t cheat,” resonate with the theme of unwavering faithfulness.
Furthermore, Jeezy emphasizes his dedication to his career and ambition, alluding to his commitment to success, even while addressing personal hardships. The lyrics, “I be out here getting paper while you sleep,” highlight his relentless pursuit of success in the face of adversity. The chorus repeats the sentiment, reinforcing the idea that real individuals remain steadfast.
In addition to discussing the importance of faithfulness, Jeezy also opens up about feeling deceived and cheated on in his past. This candid reflection is a departure from his typical music and reveals a more vulnerable side of the artist. This emotional exploration aligns with Jeezy’s petition for divorce, which he filed in the Fulton County Superior Court in Georgia in September.
