On Tuesday (March 12), the Texas rapper unloaded “Let Me Breathe,” an introspective new track that finds the YBN Nahmir affiliate addressing the media, life as a young father and the robbery that left him with a deep cut on his face.
On the song, Jay wastes no time getting into some serious subject matter. “I guess it’s time to wake ’em up, ’cause they been sleep on me/They say negative shit every time they speak on me/My momma scared to look me up, ’cause what she see on me/My face carved good, so I don’t need to keep I.D. on me,” Jay spits, referencing the large gash seen on his cheek after the attack.
Jay’s new video seemingly takes a cue from Kanye West’s “Through the Wire” video, which is one that sees footage of pivotal points of Yeezy’s life put into virtual polaroid pics. For Jay, those crucial moments include news coverage of his previous relationship with Blac Chyna, the day he was attacked and more.
