The beats are raw, his flow is raw, and his lyrics are as real as they come and are much improved.

Jeezy is an underrated rapper. His lyrics are pretty sweet. There is nothing on this track that can compare to lyrics from something like Soul Survivor, and a handful of tracks on this CD I can not get into... but the others are superb. Stuff like Don't You Know, By The Way, Amazin are songs I will always listen to when I'm in the gym.

THE RECESSION is by all means a stepping stone for Young Jeezy. It is imperfect, as stated in the title of this review as generally it falls a bit lax in comparison to both THUG MOTIVATION 101 and THE INSPIRATION. The redeeming factor that THE RECESSION has over both of those albums is it has more credibility - Jeezy tries to abstain from his cocaine-driven rap in favor of spitting rhymes about more credible issues, even tackling the notion of a 'black president', quite a stretch from "snow", if you know what I mean. Essentially, it does not always work, but most of the time it does, hence making for another solid album for Young Jeezy.

The album opens with "Recession (Intro)" which is by all means solid, if a bit too lengthy in duration. "Welcome Back", the first true track of the album is better and the production is as solid as ever. I think that the production work from THE INSPIRATION was slightly better than THE RECESSION, but the production work on THE RECESSION is strong by all accounts (no big names though). "By The Way" is another solid performance, though not necessarily incredibly memorable, a problem with a lot of THE RECESSION's material. Single "Crazy World" is perhaps the first genuine hit from THE RECESSION in which Young Jeezy is definitely in his zone. This is an exceptional single, if ultimately underrated. The production work is sound as well.

"What They Want" is equally as enjoyable as "Crazy World", as is the addictive "Amazin'". "Hustlaz Ambition" is solid if not as memorable as the best of its predecessors. "Who Dat" falls in the same boat as "Hustlaz Ambition", save for the fact that the production of "Who Dat" sells it more than Jeezy's rhymes.

Jeezy's new album the recession is his most complete consistent out of the 3. The first 2 were straight, but this one here is his best. He got some fire production form the album who includes drumma boy, shawty redd, dj toomp, the inkredibles, justice league, and don cannon. You can see the maturity in the songs my president, crazy world, circulate, and the recession(intro). He still got that humor and those adlibs in his songs. The 3 produced drumma bot tracks im amazing, hustlerz ambition, and put on feat kayne west all has some fire to it and it also proves that drumma boy is one of the most underrated producers right now.

To the reviewer that stated that kayne west was speaking nonsense in his verse, I gotta disagree 100 percent. If you listen to the lyrics, he is speaking about his mother (RIP) and how money and the fame doesn't mean everything. Had to put that out there. The other tracks that hit hard on this album include put on, circulate, my president, crazy world, everything( best song on the cd), who that, welcome back, get alot, and what they want. Top 10 alnum of 08 in my opinion; so cop jeezy's junior album if you want to heat a more mature young jeezy.

At first I thought this album wasn't going to be that great. But We had nothing else to listen to at the party and I thought it was actaully pretty good. The problem I initally had the with playing this album or any of its songs at parties or around friends, is that I thought the lyrics might be way too deep and boring. And he might try to pull of a Jay-Z or Public Enemy, a song with slow beats and not fun to listen to. But he proved me wrong and I actually enjoyed the album alot! I thought it was pretty good. My favorite tracks I thought Who Dat and Don't you know were pretty decent.I also really liked word play and Crazy World were pretty good actually. While my favorite young jeezy song isn't on here(go getta). I thought this was a very well and thoughtful album. It's good that rap's trying to make people think again instead of talking about money and cars.

Young Jeezy is growing up. The young man who brought us the term `Trap or Die' and those ridiculous Snowman T-shirts is transforming right before our eyes into a respectable artist. He started off as a `thug rapper'. He followed that up with a more retrospective side. Some people thought he went soft, so he came back with "The Recession".

Jeezy is a throwback to the B-Boy days of the 80's and early 90's. You can see him chillin with Rakim or slamin' with Onyx. He has improved his lyrical content as on "Crazy World" which is about as real as a Channel 5 news report on why the hood is so messed up. "Who Dat" is a great hype song. If you listen to this song and don't start slam dancing then you don't have a pulse. NaS shows up for the political anthem "My President". "Put On" ft. Kanye West is excellent even though I wish the remix with Jay Z was on here. I also like "What They Want", "Don't Do It" & "Amazing". The album is kind of long and certain songs could have been left off. Like the regretful "Everything" ft Anthony Hamilton. And "Circulate" just doesn't fit. All the other songs aren't standouts but they flow nicely with the vibe of this CD.

Yes, Young Jeezy raps about guns and selling drugs but he's not bragging. The way he does it is reminiscent of the way Jay Z did on `Reasonable Doubt'. He's not promoting it. He's telling stories from the hood the way he sees it. No alternate persons. No made up Mafioso characters. Jeezy isn't trying to be someone else. He just wants to be himself.
