Conclusion

Pro-social Content

Imagining he has been murdered, the rapper regrets not showing his son and mother more love, and asks God for forgiveness ("Bury Me A G"). "Dreamin'" gives props to a lady who beat cocaine addiction.

Objectionable Content

Jeezy makes light of eternal separation from God on "I Luv It" and "Bury Me A G." Drug references include blunts, bricks, pills, white squares and needles—and that's just on the dope-peddling anthem "Still On It." Nearly a dozen other cuts glamorize drugs or alcohol, from marijuana to cognac. Counting profanities and obscenities would be like trying to count stars in the night sky. Street cred is supremely important to Jeezy, who extols the "virtues" of hustling and thug life ("Hypnotize," "The Realist"). "U Know What It Is" and "Keep It Gangsta" brag about carrying a gun. There's misogynist slang, as well as lewd sexual content that includes anatomical references, casual trysts, multiple partners and, in the case of "Streets on Lock," oral sex behind the wheel at 185 mph.

Summary Advisory

Money plus drugs equals respect. That's Young Jeezy's gospel, and the Atlanta rapper doesn't care who gets hurt if it means growing his empire ... including teens he can convince to spend $15 for this sonic trash.
