    I know I already have a thread about this, but I feel this particular rapper deserved a separate thread. Why? Because its amazing how the worst rapper of all time... period, could be called one of the hottest in the game.


    MTV.com-

    Why He's Hot
    It could have been a very cold winter for the Snowman in late 2006, but the ATL trap star continued his run as one of rap's true thriving forces. Everybody was eagerly awaiting the arrival of his Gangsta Grillz special-edition mixtape, I Am the Street Dream, but it just didn't bring the 'hood tremors that his groundbreaking Trap or Die had caused in 2006. To pile on, some people were saying that the double-platinum status of his Def Jam debut, Let's Get It: Thug Motivation 101, was a fluke and that the kids were just hopping on the bandwagon of the hot new thing.



    But Jeezy had the last laugh — "haaaaah, haaaaah!" — when The Inspiration debuted at #1 on the Billboard albums chart in December, selling more than 350,000 copies and almost doubling the first-week sales of 101. The project showed he still had the most swagger of any MC on the mic. (We'll probably never get tired of "That'ssss riiiiiight!" and "Yeaaahhhhh!") The great motivator was inspired by all the doubters who said he couldn't rap, stepping up his lyrics and range of material. "Go Getta" (featuring R. Kelly) boosted his radio play and became one of the most commercially successful hip-hop records this year, while tracks like "Hypnotize" made him arguably the most street-credible act on this list. Some say going gold is the new platinum — nah, Jeezy's numbers still topped a million in this climate of lackluster sales.

    In the spring, he headlined a tour of 'round-the-way head-bussas (which featured Fat Joe, Lil Wayne, Rich Boy and Jim Jones) and introduced his new group, USDA, with Cold Summer. While they're far from household names, USDA members Slick Pulla and Blood Raw got good in the 'hood, riding alongside Jeezy on records like "White Girl" and "Corporate Thuggin'."

    Meanwhile, Jeezy has continued to be one of the busiest guest collaborators in the game, obliging requests from Kanye West, Game, Ludacris and DJ Khaled.


    Co-Signer: Fabolous
    "I saw Jeezy and respected his talent from one of the first times I heard him. Certain people don't always [catch my ear from the beginning]. It takes some type of stamping or backing, or you might have to work a little harder. But when I heard Jeezy, I said, 'His style is different.' I felt his style and energy because it was so different from what was going on. I reached out to him to work on a song, and from there we've been airtight. [We've] always been homies. It's good to see him doing his thing; he's in his own lane, he wears his hat well. I'm rooting for him."

    Blistering Ballistics
    "I got the streets on lock, Atlanta on my back/ I do it for the 'hood, you got a problem with that?/ Real n---a, so this rap sh-- easy/ When I speak, these n---as believe me/ 'Cause b---h I'm Jeezy." — "Streets on Lock"

    Worst rapper of all time? Are you serious? He doesn't come close! I've heard much worse rappers than Jeezy. You might not dig his music but he's not the worst rapper in the game today.



    adverse i hope thats sarcasm.

    shit was a reference to DTP
    Pimpin All Over The World = a previous Luda song
    Gucci Duffle Bag - a Playaz Circle song, they are on DTP
    so is Field Mob and their members are Smoke & Sean Jay
    Gettin Some Head - Shawnna's single

    a little off topic, not one of his best but it's aight

    you guys know you like Jeezy, you aint gotta lie to kick it. Who dedicates threads to people they think are the worst? That's just dumb, that's incomprehensible. You, as a hater, are more obsessed with Jeezy than his die hard fans.

    He is one of the hottest rappers in the game get used to it. Lol @ the worst rapper of all time...kids say the darndest things

    So he spit the worst verse of all time, then did a remake of the song with a slightly less shittier verse. It doesn't change the fact that Jeezy is the "William Hung" of rap.

    where is all this hate for Jeezy coming from? Is it personal? You got some kind of grudge against him?

    You are reaching with your comments. Lol @ the worst verse of all time....you can't be taken seriously.
    And how is it a remake? That's the official version of the song! That's what was released, the finished product.

    the "William Hung" of rap? where do you come up with this stuff?

    lay off the hate please it is old now. We all get that you don't like Jeezy...but your dislike has become an obsession...let it go

    You're trying to prosecute him and send him under Judge dream. I defend because I know what the hell I am talking about and I don't like people hating for no apparent reason other than the man is shining, and he's shining cuz he's grinding. I don't just say any random thing with nothing to back it up. It's called having an educated opinion on the subject. Not just talking out the ass like you.

    If you truely had an educated opinion on Hip Hop, you wouldn't call Young Jeezy tight. I was at the club last night and they played half of his damn album. Jeezy has excellent beats, but when I listen to him, I feel like I'm hearing a 6th grader take his first shot at peotry. I'm not hating for no apparent reason. Jeezy is a wack rapper.
