“Keep pushing baby”, said

Young Jeezy

as we posed for a picture inside the penthouse of The Hotel On Rivington the night of December 8. Spoken like a true realist, that message will probably resonate with me for the rest of my life. As someone who was born with a permanent disability, its messages like that that motivates me to continue pursuing my dreams – and who better to say it than one of the most, if not the most motivated rapper I’ve ever crossed paths with.

After a few setbacks, Jeezy’s

Thug Motivation 103: Hustlerz Ambition

will finally see the light of day via

Def Jam

on December 20. Since I had an opportunity to preview the album, I can attest the final installment of the

TM

series was definitely worth the wait. Something the snowman has dubbed a ‘classic’ the final product is a collection of 14 songs (18 on the deluxe version) laced with raw verses that serve as a soundtrack to the trap star’s life. Though a vast majority of the album was made for the fellas, Jizzle also made sure his appreciation for his female audience didn’t go unnoticed. One of my favorite cuts on the LP has to be

Trapped

, featuring rap-sung verses from

Jill Scott

and backed by the

J.U.S.T.I.C.E. League

’s always impressive production.

With quite a few outstanding tracks to choose from, the project boasts records like

O.J.

, alongside Fabolous and Jadakiss who reference one of the most controversial trials of the early 90’s, a bass-heavy stripper anthem on the 2Chainz-assisted

SupaFreak

, and notable guest appearances by

Andre 3000, Jay-Z, Ne-Yo, Snoop Dogg

and more.
