While Young Jeezy attributes his moniker, "Snowman," to his high-rolling lifestyle and the diamonds he sports, he could just as easily be referring to the sly coolness with which he delivers his raps. The first member of Boyz N Da Hood to drop a solo album, Young Jeezy comes out of the box sounding like Biggie Smalls with a Southern twist, ready to flow fast and fierce when he must.
LET'S GET IT: THUG MOTIVATION meets the expectations for a rapper whose reputation was exploding through 2005. His style is sometimes so hypnotic that his lyrics drift into the background; yet Young Jeezy sneaks in quite a few clever quips ( like the dig from "Gangsta Music:" "non-rappers, I'd rather listen to your instrumentals"). Guest MC Mannie Fresh offers a robust platform on "And Then What," with simple, yet potent lines and a double hook of "boom boom clap" and the chanted title. Young Jeezy's skill is best summed up when he declares himself "Last of a Dying Breed," and whether or not the breed he represents is indeed dying, he convinces listeners of his right to stake the claim.

Spin (p.60) - Ranked #37 in Spin's "40 Best Albums Of 2005" - "With a hoarse voice like he's been up working the block al night, he makes even the most mundane ad libs sound like threats."
Spin (pp.103-104) - "His lyrics have both a down-to-asphalt feel and a smirking humor..." - Grade: B
