There is probably no voice in hip-hop more distinctive than Young Jeezy's. Once he exploded onto the scene with his brand of "cocaine rap," inspired by very real life experiences, he quickly rose to the top of the charts with his gravelly, raspy voice. Those looking for beats, rhymes and life need not step into the Ogden, lest their hopes be dashed. Jeezy is raw and real, and his lyrics tell tales of moving from tragedy to triumph. His latest release, TM 103, is all "thug motivation" and most definitely for the hustlers. Energetic, charismatic and armed with a legion of exceptionally produced songs, Jeezy is a must-see.
