The title of Jeezy's most recent full-length, Seen It All: The Autobiography, hints at his relative longevity and attempts to position the Atlanta MC as one of hip-hop's forebears. But aside from dropping the "Young" from his name (it's just Jeezy now, thank you) the rapper has changed little over his decade in the music industry, and many of the verses (Punchlines? Asides?) on his latest sound like they could have nabbed a direct flight in from his 2005 debut.

What some might term stasis, however, could also be described as fortitude, and the best songs here (“Holy Ghost”) are as ferocious and uncompromising as anything in the MC’s cement mixer-heavy catalog.
