    On his seventh studio album, however, he’s reinvigorated, dipping a toe into some of rap’s newer stylistic trends.

    Seen It All: The Autobiography is a solid offering, and shows growth of Tha Snowman who is 10 years deep in the rap game.

    Whatever the reason, Seen It All: The Autobiography shakes off all the challenges of Jeezy's lesser releases and finds new inspiration from the same old rap sheet.

    The usual Jeezy tropes of hustling and encouraging others to also hustle haven't gone anywhere — the rote "Been Getting Money (featuring Akon)" could be plopped on any Jeezy album and no one would notice--but there's a heap of real-life wisdom here, too.

    His voice remains a powerful, if inexpressive, instrument--like a gong, or something--but it feels out of place in the fraught electric guitars of “1-4 Block,” or the Mike Will Made It psychedelia of “4 Zones.”

    He tends to repeat himself and his punchlines lack punch--but Seen It All is an album you can listen to start to finish and not hate yourself for buying it.

    Backed by mostly familiar trap music production, Jeezy is steady (“Been Getting Money” is especially fine), but hardly inspired.

    After releasing his last studio album “TM 103” 3 years ago, (don’t call him “Young”) Jeezy comes back on the rap game with “Seen It All: TheAfter releasing his last studio album “TM 103” 3 years ago, (don’t call him “Young”) Jeezy comes back on the rap game with “Seen It All: The Autobiography”.
    As Jeezy previously announced, Seen It All is the most introspective album of his career; the first project where he is able to actually tell his story.
    The quality of the songs on “Seen It All” makes it one of the most interesting albums in hip-hop in 2014.
    The album opens with the aggressive “1-4 Block” and “What You Say”, the type of songs he’s been known for.
    The Akon-featured “Been Getting Money” and the first single “Me OK” are also nice and catchy songs.
    Even though the first half of the album is good, the best songs are on the second part.
    The title track “Seen It All” finds Jeezy and Jay-Z reminiscing on their drug-dealers past in one of the best songs of the year.
    There are two other stand-outs on the final part of this LP: the Mike Will Made IT-produced “No Tears” with Future and “Beautiful” with The Game and Rick Ross.
    Though, I found some songs that I didn’t fully get, like “4 Zones” where he experiments the use of auto-tune which he never did or “Beez Like”, that tries too hard to be a summer track and seems out of place in this kind of album.
    As usual, Jeezy got an amazing ear for beats on this LP both on bangers and mid-tempos.
    “Seen It All: The Autobiography” is an album that entertains the listener for the whole length of the project.
    Jeezy tells us he matured: he’s not only a drug-dealer anymore; he’s also a great storyteller.
    Rating 75/100

I have listened to much of Jeezy's discography and, honestly, I never truly loved him. He has a lot of great songs do not get me wrong, but I never found an album of his that truly clicked for me until now. There are a few tracks here I did not love, but even then, there is nothing here that sticks out like a sore thumb among these tracks. Throughout, Jeezy's flow and delivery are good and the production throughout is on point. Truly, one of the bigger surprises for me of late and one I can certainly see myself pulling up later on to listen to. Expand

If nothing else, Jeezy has proven that he's consistently good. He's never released an album recognized as great, but he's also never put out a record anything less than above average. I enjoyed this album, and there are several songs that I'll be revisiting for a long time. ~ 7.7/10
    Deluxe edition: 7.3/10

    Best songs:
    ~ "Seen It All" (feat. Jay Z): Jeezy is good, the production is exceptional, and Jay Z delivers an honest, masterful, hype-af-for-real-rap-fans verse.
    ~ "Holy Ghost"
    ~ "Me OK"
