The Case: Young Jeezy has been putting on for his city since his major label debut with Let’s Get it: Thug Motivation 101 in 2005. His last solo album dropped in 2008 and continued to carry Jeezy through the recession which also was the title of the release.
The Verdict: The trap rap that propelled Jeezy into the spotlight began to run stagnant as emo became the new gangsta with the rise of artists like Kid Cudi and Drake. It also didn’t help that afternoon-nap inducing mixtapes and forgettable metaphors somehow became synonymous the Snowman over the last two years. Fans continue to wonder when Jeezy’s Thug Motivation 103 will return.
