We take a look back at Young Jeezy's early Def Jam albums.
Young Jeezy has a new album out next month, and we're getting excited over here. The Atlanta rapper is entering legendary status after ten+ years of pushing influential rap music. The Snowman is coming back, but first we're going to throw it back.
With over five million records sold, Young Jeezy has no shortage of hot records. His Def Jam debut, Let's Get It: Thug Motivation 101, can be seen as a pinnacle for southern rap music, with cuts like "Trap Star," "Go Crazy," and "Soul Survivor" taking over the airwaves for lengthy periods of time.
The next year Jeezy followed the success of that album with The Inspiration, and after that it was The Recession. These first three Def Jam releases are what we're going to focus on today for this week's TBT.
