Remember back when Jeezy was that dude? The Recession was a critical and commercial success, well received by both internet rap nerds and actual dope boys. Trap or Die 2 would have made a worthy follow up album, so as a mixtape, it was more than sufficient.

And then, out of nowhere, Jeezy fell off. Or maybe he didn’t. I can’t call it. In an era where 3 months is like a year, and a year is like a decade, it seems like forever since he’s been relevant.

Who’s to blame? Rick Rawse, who made being a Cocaine Kingpin who flies jets to Columbia and eats crab meats out of a mermaid’s bellybutton sound believable? Partly. Kingpin is the new dope boy. Jeezy didnt get his spot took, Rawse made his lane seem bigger and better. I mean, who wants to listen to “bagging dimes” raps when you have “owning a colombian village” raps? All of the sudden, Jeezy just wasn’t as cool anymore.

The rest of the blame falls squarely on The Snowman himself. Poor beat selection and awful mixtape after awful mixtape have only added to the decline that began with terrible choices for singles for what was once TM103. (“jizzle”, anyone?) Any momentum he had coming from Trap or Die 2 faded quickly.

Things seemed to take a turn for the better once Freddie Gibbs signed to CTE. I mean, if Gibbs thinks Snowman can rebound, maybe he really can. Shortly after the Gibbs announcement, TM103 got a(nother) release date, and now this. A DJ Drama and Jeezy mixtape to start the hype machine back up. I’ll let u decide if this is more Trap or Die 2 or closer to The Last Laugh. I’m rooting for Jeezy, but after the last few tapes, I just don’t trust him. And let’s be honest, he’s running out of chances.

    you can sit in a studio all day, tryna think of dope bars n shit – but these kinda bars just too real

    “early thugging, cookin this breakfast in my pyjamas”

    “in the kitchen cussin my pot like my baby momma”…

    “excuse me miss,im tryna be P and Jay-Z”…

    “all i need is trap life cross my belly, I’m Makaveli”

    i can hear the hunger…

    mixtape boring, too repetitive

    only few songs with replay value

    =============================
    Boring? No.

    Repetitive? Hell yeah.

    The Real Is Back is thorough, with a couple of standout moments, but I always get the vibe his mixtapes are full of TM103 throwaways.

    The album (if it ever gets a proper release date) will be the true litmus test on whether Jeezy can recapture the Trap throne or if the Snowman’s days are numbered.

    I know a white dude who went to MIA and was hunting for some top notch ‘caine. Ended up in the hood coppin from this shady dude who was living with his mother. Mother came out and when she saw the whiet boy in her house went to get get the strap. The white boy I know shat his fuckin pants, still copped the 8 ball though. Said it was some of the best gear he’s ever had.

  21. 12/22 songs from GodleeBarnes in HQ

  22. Holy shit

    Samir ftw

    Is this being released for real finally?

  23. Blu said it’s being re-released, but you never know. Nature Sounds planned on including it as a bonus disc when they first talked about releasing Her Favorite Colo(u)r, so if it happens I’d guess they’d be the backing label.

    None of these are official, Blu had just released them over the years through MySpace and stuff. Some of them are the exact same versions as on the release (‘TilWeDie, MyBoyBlu, etc.), while others have different alterations (Grandma’sKitchen missing the intro and cypher, etc.).
