    Great beats, mediocre lyrics. I'm sure his next album will be even better. And don't worry, this is a high 6 (very near a 7).

  1. Jeezy has a competent flow, good breath control, plenty of hot beats and all-star guests, and yet this album really is a sequel to "101" in all but name because it picks up where the last one left off without even trying to differentiate between the two.
  2. Jeezy does little to make this disc different from Let's Get It.

    His lyrics have matured past coke-slinging to the drug's effect on his life. [16 Dec 2006]
