Straight off the streets of Georgia comes Young Jeezy, a genuine artist. A product of his environment, he narrates based upon pure experience depicting a raw realism about life and the hustle of the streets he was created from. Young Jeezy conveys such a flashy delivery of punchlines and clever wordplay that some have went as far as to say he's arrogant. But let Jeezy tell it, "Its quite simply.... Confidence or "Real Talk"...period!" When he opens his mouth, his raspy voice creates music that unfolds to tell a story of the pain and struggles of his life. One could visualize through his words the enthusiasm and passion he has for grasping his piece of what life has to offer, but on the flip side, also what it could cost you to get it. He would be the first one to tell you of his lyrics, "This is all he know!" Whatever progress or success you have in life, whatever struggle you endured to take those steps, you can relate to Young Jeezy because this is the platform that he speaks upon.
Using his proactive hustling spirit from the streets and raw skill, Young Jeezy took aim at the music business and his shot exploded in the streets with his mix tape "Gangsta Grillz: The Streetz is Watching." Armed with DJ Dramatic by his side, he has taken over 60,000 on a ride through the world according to Young Jeezy. Now with the street buzz taken up a notch to a loud hum, it only makes sense to anticipate demand with supply. Point taken, Jeezy prepares by working on dual projects. The first being his solo effort properly labeled, "Let's Get It" through his own Corporate Thugz Entertainment (USDA) and the hip-hop powerhouse, Def Jam Records! Simultaneously, he is working on a group venture in conjunction with Bad Boy Entertainment called "Boyz N Da Hood", but on the Southside. So, that would make Young Jeezy, Def Jam's Bad Boy! Yeah!!!!!!!!!!!
Def Jam's Bad Boy has an impressive roster of talented MC's and producers that he has collaborated with on his journey to hip-hop success including Fabulous, Jazze Pha (ShoNuff Record's), TI, Trick Daddy, P. Diddy, Lil Flip, Bun B of UGK, Lil Jon, BoneCrusher, Lloyd, and Lil Scrappy to name a few. With the streets, Def Jam, Bad Boy, and Shonuff recordings behind him, you get the feeling that he is a force to be reckoned with. "Over Here" with Bun B of UGK is the first single in radio rotation. Just recently, the video for this single was filmed in tropical Miami by video visionaries, Thomas Forbes/Fat Cats, which is said to be cinematic in tone with a comedic flare topped with beautiful women that boast entertainment for all.
Starting out with this type of support, recognition, and ambition to his credit, many without a doubt will soon coin Young Jeezy as Def Jam's $100 million dollar Bad Boy!
