From “What I Do” to “F.A.M.E.”, Young Jeezy’s TM103: Hustlerz Ambition is composed of anthems that bang hard through the speakers and is bound to keep Jeezy as a known commodity in the rap game for some time. It is difficult not to nod your head to Jeezy’s songs that combine his trademark laughter and ‘damn’ catchphrase. The opener “Waiting,” is about the blood and sweat he put into the project and the lessons learned along the way. “OJ,” enlightens the listener on the prolific lifestyle that comes with being in entertainment and features Fabolous and Jadakiss.
Despite having brought the stories of the streets to the music before, the Atlanta based rapper is rooted in making the listener follow a never ending epic about the apropos “Snowman” himself. “All We Do,” tones down the brash technicalities that exhibit themselves on TM103, gliding by as a banger on smoke and sex; whereas “Trapped,” features Jill Scott, is harsh in its tone and detailed authenticity pacing itself as a reflection on wanting to move forward yet being engulfed in a web of immobility. “I Do,” is styled towards finding the right one through as series of verses provided by Jeezy, Jay-Z and Andre 3000.
TM103: Hustlerz Ambition‘s main objective is to lament and elicit sympathy while creating a frenzied manifesto through moving and boastful snapshots from the trap rapper. “Higher Learning,” is brewed in a chronic puffing chorus “I need some weed/somebody call the weed man/I’m tryin to get high,” and a laid back spliff vibe with multiple guest stars including Snoop Dogg and Devin The Dude. The shameless “.38,” is intent on firing a hardcore bullet about the crude ups and downs of what it takes to be a hustler.
3 years in the making, TM103: Hustlerz Ambition was initially delayed; yet the despite the setbacks does not take away from the hood mindset of an individual who draws from his quoted “empty” childhood and the experiences he’s had since then.
