    No rapper stays the same after years in the game, but what has happened to Jeezy is incredible.

    The change in my opinion began when everyone in the media shitted on how bad the lyrics were on “Thug Motivation 101.” Jeezy then tried to become a “rapper.” He started to improve as a rapper in every technical aspect. “Can’t Ban The Snowman” mixtape dropped which I didn’t like because he was rapping on beats he shouldn’t have been rapping on.

    He had a few guest spots where he showed his improved rapping ability and well…then “The Inspiration” came. I didn’t like his second album for the most part because you could see the transformation in him and it wasn’t for the better to me. Also, the album had less Shawty Redd. People complained about that and the whole “Jeezy needs Redd” talk started to happen.


    Fast forward to “The Recession.” Jeezy talked about switching it up and talking about what the people want to hear and what they are going through. What do we get with “The Recession”? A whole lot of nothing on the album. The Jeezy from “Thug Motivation 101” was completely gone. As I have been saying since the album came out. You can put a verse from one song and put it on another song from the album and not tell the difference.


    Now you look at everything that Jeezy has done since his last album and it makes “The Recession” seem better than what it is due to the lackluster songs he has been releasing.


    “Trappin Ain’t Dead” is actually my favorite mixtape that has come from Jeezy over the past couple of years. Even though most of the songs sound the same and uninspiring, they are a lot better than the other songs.

    Then we have “Trap or Die 2” which IMO was wack and a huge let down.

    Jeezy realizes that people weren’t feeling it, so he realizes this and releases that god awful mixtape with DJ Scream.

    He realizes people weren’t feeling that, so he releases another mixtape this morning and people aren’t feeling it. Another fail.


    Now let’s get to these songs he has been trying to release as singles. “Lose My Mind” which sucks bad lyrically, but managed to make its way to making noise is probably the best track he has released. “All White Everything” and all the others have sounded the exact same because he keeps trying to recreate trap songs with Shawty Redd/D.Rich.


    “Thug Motivation 103” continues to get delayed because he can’t come up with a good single and good collection of songs for an album.


    Now someone at another forum made a great observation about Jeezy and I can agree 100% with it.


    listening to this made me realize what it is about jeezy thats missing. it aint the i preferred when he was a im not a rapper, rapper and it aint the he fell off angle....nor is it the beat angle because these are the exact beats i want to hear jeezy on. and rap wise jeezy is a better rapper technically but his raps are missing those great 1 liners he used to have. those simple yet witty ass lines and the delivery of these lines is what used to have a nigga loving his shit. i was recently bumping the inspiration and that album is proof of what im talking about. you go listen to that and you'll instantly feel me. nigga had such great lines like....

    "the chevy just do something to my self esteem..."

    "they move too slow and i think too quick.........................................*lon g pause*............................thats why i flash like gordon....."

    "...its all in the game, free throws and fouls...."


    just...shit like that...lines like those and the way he delivered them bitches is what made jeezy the shit. its not like he was saying some prolific shit but the way he said the shit and the way he put those lines together were great. where is that now? i dont hear none of that on this shit nor his last tape. despite him being a better rapper technically, that witty swagged out shit just aint there like it used to be. and i know some will think im just trying to find a reason to hate but nah...i actually think this is a decent tape from jeezy. just listening to old jeezy then listening to this makes you see/hear the obvious imperfections of his latest shit.


    So what do you all think has happened to Young Jeezy?

    I think a lot of people have been saying that for a while on here and Im now on that bandwagon... he's got better as a rapper overall but him trying to be a real rapper aint what blowed him up... it's that Trap or Die/TM101 flow that got the streets blazing 5-6 years ago...

    Gucci better watch it because he seems to be heading down that same road (even with the mixtapes)...

    Honestly Jeezy been the same since day one to me, although im not a fan of everything he puts out I think he's just feeling himself to much .... he needs to come off that high horse a realize he can only make music for the streets....

    As for jeezy and this whole "He tried to hard to be a real rapper" issue I agree to an extent
    but I was never the biggest Jeezy fan to begin with I loved TOD and TM101 and he's had a
    few gems (songs) here and there but overall his consistency has suffered and I don't think
    its is a matter of him trying to be a better more diverse rapper I just think he lost the hunger
    and is far removed from the streets and that mentality that he can't come back to that so
    therefore we are left with this person and you either like it or you don't me personally I liked
    TOD 2 aight the scream tape had a couple jams & this new 1 I liked aight as well but as far
    as buying an album? not hannin LOL Maybe jeezy should hire Pusha-T as a sort of mentor &
    ghostwriter of sorts LMFAO

    I like probably 1 or 2 out of every 10 new Jeezy songs. But I'll still give his new songs/mixtapes/albums a chance over 95% of other garbage that comes out these days.

    to me he has stopped bein true to his original sound and metaphors......its like his lost his identity somewhere...and he tryna roll wit whatever is hot at the moment...from jumpin on beats that sound like shit Ross would be on, jumpin on Zaytoven beat, to tryin to do the all white shit like Gotti...to go along wit his shit sounds effortless and lackluster...

    nigga go get some Toomp and Drumma beats...bring back the ablibs...and do you, shit...

    the only cd i really liked from jeezy was thug motivation 101. everything else was ok or wack.

    he made some tight tracks but never delivered again with a full cd of good music so with that being said, we just needa stop expecting good shit from him.

    i dont think jeezy can plz folk. everytime he make some shit folks say he need 2 do this and that. when he first dropped folks was talkin bout how he couldnt rap and now he got his bars up he need 2 dumb it down. jeezy be goin hard. @lb trap or die 2 was hard as fuck if it was named anything else it woulda been considered a classic. other than that 1000 grams everything jeezy dropped done went hard.
