    Another Rapper who is setting a bad example for Real Hip-Hop music and artists. This CD is pretty much crap. Stealing a song like "Bury me a G" from 2pac is not the way to make a name for yourself. Another fake ass wanna be thug that is killing Rap Music.

    This album is not too good. Why did I even buy this? I must go listen to Young Jibbs and Jamie Kennedy now.

    I thought this album was more conscious. We need a real rapper, not some gimmick club rapper who presents himself with just style and beats. The Inspiration was supposed to inspire me. Well, I don't quite feel it.

  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]
