The 5 Best Songs Of The Week

The Week That Was had already delivered to us a pretty impressive number of worthy songs for inclusion in this list, and then, outta nowhere, Death Grips dropped a whole new album, giving us 10 more songs to sort through for this feature (Government Plates goes 11 tracks deep, but the previously released "More »

Jeezy – “Benihana” (Feat. Rocko & 2 Chainz)

We here at Stereogum don't make a habit of posting every Young Jeezy song, let alone every Rocko or 2 Chainz song. But I've played the new one "Benihana" three times in a row now, and I see that number growing. A lot. My son is currently climbing on my shoulders and playing drums o… More »

The 5 Best Videos Of The Week

There were too many music videos this week. I had to devote a huge chunk to yesterday afternoon just watching all the ones I'd missed. And worse, there were too many good ones. How is anyone supposed to process all these entertaining music videos? It's fucked up. When a K-pop boy band makes a music… More »

Download Young Jeezy It’s Tha World Mixtape

Atlanta rap giant Young Jeezy released a full-length's worth of free music into the world today. His new tape is called It's Tha World, and it's got appearances from 2 Chainz, E-40, Birdman, YG, and, somehow, the incarcerated Lil Boosie. Mike Will, Jhalil Beats, Cardo, DJ Mustard, Warren G, and others contribute beats. Listen to… More »

Young Jeezy – “We Done It Again”

Four years ago, Young Jeezy had something of an election-night anthem with "My President Is Black." And in its gloriously incoherent political-rage tradition comes "We Done It Again," the four-years-later follow-up. Jeezy's really just cataloging shit-wrong-in-the-streets on "We Done It Again," but it's still a celebratory song, and one that sounds pretty sweet thi… More »

Freddie Gibbs – “Go For It” (Feat. Young Jeezy)

A few days after Gangster Gibbs dropped the Krayzie Bone/SpaceGhostPurrp collab "Kush Cloud," he's back with another hard-nosed banger called "Go For It" featuring his CTE label boss Young Jeezy. Download it below. More »

Kendrick Lamar – “Westside, Right On Time” (Feat. Young Jeezy)

The blip in TDE activity continues with the late Friday afternoon drop of Kendrick Lamar's new single "Westiside, Right On Time," which features one Young Jeezy. It absolutely knocks; Kendrick unspools two knotty verses that straddle Jeezy, who holds his own with a vintage-hearkening verse. When the beat drops on this one, oh my. More »

From T.I. To TNGHT: A Look At Trap Rave

Do a search for "trap" on SoundCloud and you'll find more than 500 tracks uploaded with the tag in the last three days. What's interesting, though, are the labels that show up with the most frequency in the similar tags section: "bass," "club," "dance," "dj," "dubstep," and "electronic" appear right below the expected "rap," "hip-hop,"… More »

Freddie Gibbs – “Pull Up” (Feat. Young Jeezy & T.I.)

As someone who's been watching fast-rapping Indiana street-rap hope Freddie Gibbs for the fast few years, it's great to see him reach the point of his career where he's teaming up with actual rap superstars. On the new "Pull Up," he trades bars with new label boss Young Jeezy and fellow Atlanta fixture T.I., absolutely… More »

Chief Keef – “Understand Me” (Feat. Young Jeezy)

Chief Keef's stone-cold "Understand Me" has been around for a couple weeks now, but the song now comes equipped with a tone-matching verse from ATL trap music baron Young Jeezy. Stream it below. More »

Nicki Minaj – “Champion” (Feat. Drake, Young Jeezy & Nas)

Nicki Minaj's sophomore album Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded drops next Tuesday, and the most star-studded of its track just found its way to the internet. "Champion" is a triumphal posse cut featuring the A-list trio of Drake, Young Jeezy, and Nas -- each of whom sounds pretty strong, though maybe somebody should get Jeezy a… More »

T.I. – “Fuck Da City Up” Video (Feat. Young Jeezy)

T.I. released his pretty great Fuck Da City Up mixtape at the very beginning of the year, and one of its finest tracks was the title joint, a chaotic collab with fellow Atlanta rap overlord Young Jeezy. In the song's brand-new video, both of them stomp around an Atlanta that's been made to look… More »

Young Jeezy – “Talk To Me” (Feat. Eminem & Freddie Gibbs)

Drumma Boy produces this menacing slow jam from Jeezy's forthcoming Thug Motivation 103: Hustlerz Ambition, featuring Eminem and Jeezy's label signee Freddie Gibbs. With this and the two previous tracks from TM 103 -- "I Do" and "F.A.M.E." -- we can't help but feel a little underwhelmed as Jeezy tries to get back… More »

Young Jeezy – “I Do” (Feat Jay-Z & André 3000) & “F.A.M.E.” (Feat. T.I.) Video

Jeezy called in some favors for this one! For his sound-drenched track "I Do," the once-dominant Atlanta rapper Young Jeezy managed to wrangle guest verses from two of rap's biggest names, Jay-Z and OutKast's André 3000; I honestly can't remember the last time those two rapped on the same song. Did they ever? They must've… More »

Young Jeezy – “F.A.M.E. (Fake Ass Muthafuckas Envy)” (Feat. T.I.)

Event-rap! The new Young Jeezy single unites two of the biggest rappers in Atlanta history, and it's also one of the first new verses we've heard from T.I. since his last prison release. It's a J.U.S.T.I.C.E. League-produced track with an absolutely ridiculous acronym in its title, and as you've probably already guessed, it's about haters. More »

Download Young Jeezy The Real Is Back 2 Mixtape

Atlanta drug-rap fixture Young Jeezy has been putting out a lot of mixtapes lately, and not all of them are worth your iTunes real estate. But Jeezy's latest effort, the brand-new The Real Is Back 2, is a truly strong piece of work if you're the type of person who downloads mixtapes from Atlanta drug-ra… More »

New Rihanna (Feat. Young Jeezy) Video – “Hard”

In this new video Rihanna claims to be "so hard" while constantly making hand gestures towards her crotch and grabbing said crotch. That's what she said. More »

New Kanye West (Feat. Young Jeezy) Video – “Amazing”

It is possible that Kanye will make a video for every one of 808s' heartbreaks. And that could be fun. This new one, directed by Hype Williams and shot in Hawaii, however, strikes me as an elaborate excuse for Kanye to write off a recent trip with Hype Williams to Hawaii. We can all agree… More »

Kanye Does “Amazing” On 106 & Park

The guy's lugging that auto-tuner and drumline into every TV studio that'll have him, it's true, but this time he's got a Young Jeezy in tow. Watch. More »

Premature Evaluation: Kanye West – 808s & Heartbreak

After several closely monitored weeks of leaks, it's time to take a look at the year's most anticipated album that doesn't feature Buckethead. Given Kanye West's reputation for finding musical inspiration in unlikely places (be they leftfield samples or genre-bending collaborations) it's surprising to see the superstar rapper/producer embrace such a restrictive palette. A… More »
