    He went from trying to sound like Biggy to trying to pull of the voice of Rick Ross. Verse should have got scrapped. Nas killed it. Loved Busta's verse too

    Agreed.

    There are some good songs on the album, but "how to hate" and "how to love" ruin it for me.

    For all you Jeezy fans, the videos are posted on the link.

    PIMP IN DISTRESS!

    BY DANIEL RAVEN
    Young Jeezy
    Celebrity Theatre
    Thursday, August 25, 2011

    Young Jeezy may not know how to ride a beat or rap for more than ten seconds without losing his breath, but he was certainly able to keep it gangsta last night at Celebrity Theatre.

    Rapping to a half-empty venue in support of his upcoming album, Thug Motivation 103, Jeezy delivered a set list packed full of gritty street anthems like "Trap Or Die", "Soul Survivor" and "Put On".

    Although he couldn't replicate his studio delivery on stage and sounded more like an asthmatic amateur than a platinum-selling star, he still managed to exude enough confidence and energy to sell the audience on the authenticity of his lyrics.

    Oh, and there was that unexpected Katt Williams brawl.

    ​Because he built his career around his well-deserved reputation as a cocaine slinging, gang-affiliated bad ass and not around his skills as an M.C., the rapper's shortcomings as a performer did little to detract from fans' enjoyment.

    Jeezy has been promoting the release of the same perpetually pushed back album since he came to town more than two years ago with Lil Wayne and Soulja Boy.

    Since he hasn't put out a successful mainstream single in ages, the crowd was largely devoid of the well-mannered, suburban youth demographic that one would typically find at a big name rap show and the audience seemed a lot rougher and tougher as a result.

    All that gangsta posturing on stage and around the venue reached critical mass about halfway through the show when an epic fight erupted in the V.I.P. Area as "I Luv It" began.

    Comedian Katt Williams, a throng of his groupies and a pack of hulking bouncer types converged in a prolonged orgy of violence that lasted almost as long as the song did -- it's hard to say what exactly caused the throw-down, but these videos confirm the action:

    After ejecting an angry, shirtless Williams from the show (who departed once his female companions finished recovering their wigs)
    , a visibly irritated Jeezy ordered the stage lights off and outdid the spectacle of the fight by performing "Soul Survivor" almost exclusively by the light of the audience's cell phones.

    This was probably the highlight of the show, although the rapper's monologues between songs about overcoming adversity by stunting on your haters were a close second.

    All things considered, the show was a success, and Celebrity Theater is the perfect place for a show like this.

    The layout is terrific, and while the stage unfortunately wasn't rotating for this concert, there aren't a lot of venues that allow a big audience the opportunity to get so up close and personal with a performer.

    Jeezy may have sounded a little clumsy and uncoordinated, but he performed until sweat poured off of him and ultimately delivered the unique brand of realness that his fans appreciate him for, even going so far as to remove his diamond chains and wade into the crowd.

    Critic's Notebook

    Last Night: Young Jeezy at Celebrity Theatre

    The Crowd: Flabby thugs with bloodshot eyes and women who look like they haven't seen a bar of soap in at least a couple weeks.

    Overheard In The Crowd: "Is that Katt Williams or a backup dancer?"

    Personal Bias: I'm pretty sure Trap Or Die is the best mixtape I've ever heard. If you download it and listen to "Pussy Ass Niggas" every day on the way to work your life will only get more awesome.

    I went to Rock the Bells yesterday. It was fucking awesome. I posted my review in the RTB thread, but also wanted to share here. I know not everyone reads the other festivals thread.

    Got there just in time for Souls of Mischief. (93 til Infinity) Great Souls set, brought out all of Hiero; Pep, Casual, Del, Domino. They performed/closed with “Cab Fare.” Cab Fare is one of those rare B-side tracks on a single and they never perform it live. That was a treat.
    Walked over to the side stages. 36 Chambers stage was just starting as we walked back to see Common, but Killa Priest had a live band and sounded great as I was walking away. Common was awesome. Had a live band, they sounded great.
    Black Star was awesome, but I think Common with live band edged them out a little and had a better set. Common came back out and did a song with Mos and Talib. Very cool moment. There hasn’t been too many live collaborations's at RTB. I wish there were more. It makes the event and moment feel special. Fans hardly ever get to see all these guys at one festival and several have made songs together at one time or another.
    Went back out to the side stages. Could have called it Rock the sound bleed. Sub-par set up. Both stages next to each other at the same time. Checked out Random Axe (36 chambers stage), but Black Milk wasn’t with them so I went and found a cool spot closer to the Paid Dues stage. Watched Fashawn and Exile. Fashawn was impressive, I’d not caught him live before but had heard positive talk about him. Blu came out a bit later, but then I went and checked out Black Moon (36 Chambers stage). Buckshot is good. I’d like to see him again when I can give his set more of my focus.
    Back to Paid Dues for Big K.R.I.T. I first heard K.R.I.T. around the same time I’d first heard Yelawolf. (Yelawolf opened the Paid Dues stage last year) His set was awesome. Lots of energy, great stage presence, great mic control. I was surprised how much love the bay area has for him, but everyone was digging him. I heard lots of people talking about K.R.I.T. at the end of the night. Best side stage performance of the day.
    Next up at Paid Dues stage was SLAUGHTERHOUSE. Royce came out first and he started “Sound Off” the way he introduces everyone else in the group. Everyone was there. Either the mics were slightly off or they’ve got questionable mic control because it was a bit hard to hear during some parts which was a bit disappointing. Joe Budden was great as stand up comic of the group making fun of a girl eating a hot dog (through the entire set) while not being able to decide between Slaughterhouse and Mobb Deep on the 36 Chambers stage. I wish they had a longer set time and the mics sounded better. Would LOVE to see them again live.
    Back to the main stage for Nas doing Illmatic. His stage set up was very cool. Big Queens bridge project building facades on each side of the stage with a metal gate in the middle; park bench stage left. Both DJ Premier and Pete Rock were up in the DJ booth. He brought out Mobb Deep. Great set, really captured and presented Illmatic properly like Snoop did Doggystyle last year.
    Saw GZA finish Liquid Swords, but was so exhausted I watched from the back on a picnic table. Ghostface and Raekwon closed the 36 Chambers stage with Only built for Cuban Linx. Capadona came out with them. He was great. They brought up two fans to do Meth’s and ODB’s part from Protect Ya Neck. The girl kinda failed on Meth’s verse but the white jewish looking guy KILLED on ODB’s verse and really saved the song. Very cool moment. After they finished I was tired as hell but we went back to the main stage to see what was left of Lauryn Hill.
    Im really glad I went back. The crowd had REALLY thinned and most had left. I saw her do two songs plus her four song encore and everything I saw and heard sounded great! Her stage set up was awesome. Bookshelves in the background while her band was on their own small round stages. Live video of Lauryn shown on the big screen on stage was in black and white. It was a very retro look and feel. It reminded me of the old Ed Sullivan show the way they’d set up the stage for band. I’d heard that she would turn around and yell things at her band and shout commands, but it looked to me like she was “conducting her orchestra,” like James Brown would do when he would perform live. I thought her band sounded great and on point. I really thought her conducting kinda added to her performance rather than hinder it. Her encore included Fugees songs “Oh La La La” and “Ready or Not.” Sounded fantastic. Then brought Nas out to do If I Ruled the World! This was the best moment at RTB 2011. I’ll never get to see that live again. She ended with Could You Be Loved by Bob Marley. Awesome, awesome ending to what everyone had been saying and complaining would be a train wreck of a performance. After talking to some fans who’d watched her full set, they said she started out a little rougher and it sounded like I caught the better part of her set.

    Best performances
    1. Common (because of his band)
    2. Big K.R.I.T.
    Nas
    Black Star
    Slaughterhouse

    Another highlight was getting to see and meet several of the performers and other cool people just walking around the festival and enjoying the show. I ran into, Opio, Phesto, Domino, Casual, Blu, Boy Jones (Young DB), Luckyiam, Murs (he was working his merch booth solo in between hosting the Paid Dues stage), Davey D, Pep Love, Flossafee, and Jennifer Johns.

    haha I felt the same way when I first heard it. It's slowly becoming my favorite rap song of the year. Try listening to the rest of the album. Maybe you'll dig it.


    The second half of the song just floors me every time.

    This album is tough for me. I really like some of the songs (Pac Blood, Fields) but then there's the back-to-back horrible combo of Bruiser Brigade and Detroit 187. Like, are these songs completely sarcastic or does he prefer alternating between sounding intelligent and retarded?

    Ha, Bruiser Brigade is probably the only song I don't like on the album, so don't feel bad about that one. Detroit 187 is tight though. I think he always sounds intelligent, sarcastic, cocky, insecure. He's very multi-faceted which is what I really like about him. Like one song (Blunt After Blunt, for example) is him bragging about smoking blunts and getting bitches. Other songs tell of him desperately trying to cling to sanity and cope with his drug use. He's also funny, yet in most songs you can tell he's panicking when talking about serious shit in his life. Idk, most people seem to not like him just because of his voice but I think it's what adds to the whole drug induced, hostile environment it seems he's been in throughout his years. Definitely an emotionally heavy listen, but it never seems to be dragged out or hard to get through because he also has a sense of humor. Plus, his punchlines are top-notch.

    yup.




    Also, it's kind of weird that "Purple Swag" is one of ASAP Rocky's most popular songs. "Get High" and "Toast To The Gods" are both infinitely better.
