Recession Works!

  • Oct 17, 2009
  • by
The Recession gave me a reason to enjoy Young Jeezy.  It's a great album for driving and pumping up, and because of its topical nature, I feel that  it's more broadly relatable.  I never thought I'd be partial to the "YEEEEEAAAAHHHHS" of Jeezy, but given the concept of this album, I was able to focus on his flow instead of his calling cards.

The beats on this album are among the best of 2008.  Don Cannon and Drumma Boy did some of my favorite production.  It's Southern flavor comes through with songs like the horn driven, trudging march of "By The Way" by Houston producer T.A.  There are also pop-R&B leaning tracks like "Takin' It There," featuring Trey Songz.  If you generally like Southern hip hop and haven't heard it yet, check out "Amazing" and "Circulate."

What did you think of this review?

I can't say I'm too into Jeezy. I have a friend that's a pretty big fan of him, but I seem to only really enjoy him when he has a huge synth background and interesting topics to work with. If everything Jeezy did was like "My President" or "Real as it Gets" (off Jay-Z's new album), I would probably be able to enjoy him much more.

Haha "the 'YEEEEEAAAAHHHHS' of Jeezy". I used to really like "Go Getta" (WOOOO R. KELLY)and "Thug Motivation 101" but sorta stopped listening after that. I should get back into him..maybe this album will help. Thanks for the review!

Jay Jenkins (born October 12, 1977)better known by his stage name Young Jeezy, is an American rapper and member of the Hip-Hop group USDA and a former member of Boyz N Da Hood. He began his career in 2001 under an independent label and joined Boyz N Da Hood in 2005, the same year his solo major label debut Let's Get It: Thug Motivation 101 was released.
