The Artist: Young Jeezy
The Mixtape: 2005’s Trap or Die
Why It Should Have Been Released Commercially: In ’05, Jeezy could have sold a blank CD to the masses. And they would have loved it! So you have to think that Def Jam is kicking themselves a little bit now thinking about what might have been if they’d stripped Trap or Die down to the original tracks and released it as an EP. Granted, we’re happy with the way that Let’s Get It: Thug Motivation 101 came out. But there was definitely some extra money to be made off Jizzle’s stellar ToD mixtape.
