I’ve been writing a lot lately about how Young Jeezy’s slowly but surely won me over, but he’s taken a substantial step backwards with his new single Trap or Die 2. As opposed to the original certified banger, this iteration of Trap or Die is so anemic it’s barely breathing. Now I’m all for minimalistic production, but Zaytoven’s beat on the track is barely there – just the occasional snare roll, a slowly paced high-hat and literally three notes. Verbally Jeezy isn’t much better, sounding like he drank a bottle of Robitussin before he hit the booth and becoming the 117th rapper to spit a “quarterbackin like Brett Farve” line. The Snowman can do much better than this (like for example his last single I Got This). I guess they can’t all be winners. Jeezy’s new album Thug Motivation 103 (for which Thug Motivation 101 and 102 is a prerequisite) still has no release date.
