Young Jeezy - Thug Motivation 101

From Aqualung to Young Jeezy - that could be my new slogan for the blog. Not only is it close to spanning the alphabet, but it's such a change of music pace - which I'm all about. This is another record I bought in 2005, same as S&B. I picked this up as pretty much an impulse buy when I was at Target one day. I had a bunch of errands to run and I didn't have any cd's with me in the car. Since I pretty much loathe the radio (as most of you know), I had to pick up something. I think I'd heard 1, maybe 2 tracks from this album. I had only heard Jeezy one other time, which was on a Trick Daddy track from his Thug Matrimony record. I remembered thinking this guy could blow up, but boy did I underestimate him. I tossed this record in, and I never put it down to this day. One of the best hip hop records of all time start to finish. He's put out 2 more albums since TM101, and will soon be releasing TM103 this year. I'm sure you've heard a couple singles from this, but those probably are the less solid songs here. The ones I like most never saw any real radio play. If you at all enjoy rap, you'll honestly love this album. Even if you're not a hip hop fan, I think you'll groove to a couple tracks on here. Who knows, you may even get up and shake ya groove thang!
