This is maybe not a story telling as the autobiography part of the title would suggest. It comes across as a collection of songs that are ordered from least emotional to most emotional. Not to say the songs don’t show a growth as a person for Jeezy as it shows him moving away from selling drugs and into the rap industry where he seeks bigger and better things.
The production is good throughout but feels a bit segmented, meaning that every few songs the production type and atmosphere changes to allow a step forward in emotional growth for Jeezy to express. It starts off very Trap and moves through the scale until you reach a more open audience range of beats that could be used for a wide range of genres. That being said, none of the production is bad, infact a lot of it is good and keeps the listener interested, it just needed some of the variation sprinkled over the entire album.
The lyricism is present as always and while it is not as prominent as the top lyricists in the rap game, it is included, just a bit more subtly. Jeezy uses his unique voice to stand out against the features. The features themselves are good and they reflect Jeezy’s own style which amplifies both performances.
Overall, This is a good album that helps showcase Jeezy’s evolution during his rap career and where he stands now. It may not be the greatest album of the year, but it is immersive and there will definitely be a few tracks for all rap fans to enjoy.
