Tag Archives: TM103
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.
Live at NYC’s Gramercy Theater. Currently in progress.
Over the weekend, rumors surfaced that Jizzle’s fourth album, TM 103: Hustlerz Ambition was pushed back indefinitely. Well to combat the backlash, Da Snowman released a handwritten tracklist, sans features. Wait, no “Shake Life”? Either way, TM 103 is scheduled to drop in eight days (September 20th).

(Jeezy brings out Kanye for “Put On”)
Since last week, there was buzz about Young Jeezy’s big TM101 6-year anniversary concert in New York City. Rap bloggers and journos began filling their timelines with Jeezy quotables and idle claims of their “thugness,” based purely on the hope that they, too, would live a hustler’s life like Jeezy, even if it was just for a few hours. Not quite for most, but it was all worth it last night. After making us wait till after 11, things kicked into over-drive pretty fast.
Cue song 2: “Go Crazy (Remix)” and Hov was already making a cameo. His mic started way low, but a guest appearance from Jay is.. well a guest appearance from Jay. But things kept getting better, Kanye was up next and peeked his head out to spit his verse from “Put On,” Bun B, Fabolous and the entire LOX also came out during the night. But energy level wise, Jada, Sheek and Styles were really the only other ones to take things to the next level
Oh yea, TM103 is coming on Sept. 20th, Jeezy said.
