Dre Powe - Oprah


Over the summer, Jeezy celebrated the 10th anniversary of his debut album Let’s Get It: Thug Motivation 101 with a concert in Atlanta that will be remembered for years. On top of performing the entire album in front of the home crowd at the historic Fox Theater, Snow brought out T.I., DJ Drama, Bun B, OutKast, Usher and Kanye West, and reunited with his former group, Boyz N Da Hood. It was past lit.

The trap rap god recently released a mini documentary that covers the behind-the-scenes stuff during the days that led up to the memorable show. In the 11-minute clip, Jeezy gets prepped for the show, rehearsing with a live band. He also makes his way around the city doing radio spots and explaining his reasoning for putting on. “It really aint about me and my 10 years,” says Jeezy. “It’s about the city I love and represent, and live and die for.”

Check out the mini doc, below.

Let’s Get It: Thug Motivation 101, debuted at No. 2 on the Billboard 200 chart a week after its release back in the summer of 2005, selling 172,000 copies in its first week on shelves. The album would go on to reach platinum status and cement Young as one of the artist on the rise out of Atlanta.

Jeezy is currently prepping the release of his eighth studio album Church In The Streets. The album drops Nov. 13 via Def Jam and has been spearheaded by “God,” “Church In The Streets,” “Gold Bottles” and “Sweet Life.” He will be going on tour the day before the album drops. Check to see if he will be pulling up to your city, here.
