Published November 17, 2015

Jeezy has seen it all over the course of becoming a rap god.

Having recently dropped his eighth album, Church in These Streets, on Friday, the Snowman stopped by ESPN and accepted their "song-star" challenge, picking some of his hits that best fit specific NBA stars.

Jeezy blessed LeBron James with "Trapstar," reasoning, "He's the biggest star in the Association. Everybody knows his name. He's that guy."

Jeezy attached "Vacation" to Carmelo Anthony's name, explaining, "he needs to get up out of NYC. That's a tough place to play for, he needs a break. He needs to get away."

Tim Duncan received "Seen It All," while Kobe Bryant got "I Luv It."

Jeezy gave his club banger "R.I.P." to Stephen Curry, explaining, "Dead. That's a wrap when he gets the ball in his hands. Game over. His handles, he don't play."

Kevin Durant got "Enough" with Jeezy describing: "He's on a great team (with great teammates) and he plays his heart out. The song is about if you grind hard enough you can make it. It's time for him to break the glass ceiling and get a championship."
