Jeezy back! Man, it took a long time to get Young’s fourth album but he really came through victorious in the fourth quarter with the fourth highest first week sales of any rap album in 2011. How’d he do that? By keeping that trap music to the forefront and rounding up a gang of guests to help him reach that goal. Hov and 3 Stacks help craft this year’s player’s anthem (“I Do”). A fresh out of jail T.I. rides for his ATL patna on the reflective “F.A.M.E.”. Loso and Fab quench our thirst on “OJ” and 2 Chainz makes time in his busy schedule to spike up the formidable “SupaFreak”. Of course, Jizzle can also hold his own on cuts like the nifty “Nothing”, cater to the females (the lavish “Leave You Alone”) and bare his soul (the Jill Scott-enhanced “Trapped”). Yeah we were “Waiting” forever but thankfully, Da Snowman finally delivered.
Narrated by Samuel L. Jackson, here’s the full 42-minute documentary courtesy of VEVO. Purchase the DVD along with TM:103 tomorrow. You think you know Jizzle, but you have no idea.
