Gruff-voiced, low-key, and studiously about that paper, Jeezy is one of the formative figures in trap. A hustler, yes, and a banger, and if you believe his grimly funny punch lines, the kind of guy who loves his gun so much he takes it to the bathroom (as the man himself might say, yeahhhhhhh). But the Atlanta street legend’s best tracks aren’t just tough, they’re soulful and uplifting, the kind of ghetto confessionals that situate his shadowy dealings alongside sharp observations about the prison system, drug sentencing laws, and race in America. Forgive him—he’s so emotional, he hugs the block (aye!). Here’s the best of the Snowman.
