Let's Get It: Thug Motivation 101 (2005)

Details Release Date: Jul 26, 2005; Lead Performance: Young Jeezy; Genre: Hip-Hop/Rap

Nicknamed the Snowman thanks to his fabled prowess for peddling certain white substances, this growling Atlanta mixtape king lives up to his frosty moniker on this major-label debut, Let's Get It: Thug Motivation 101, with enough drug references to keep a narcotics cop on his toes for months. But with Young Jeezy's addictive charisma on anthems like the soul-studded ''Go Crazy'' and the down-South-funky ''And Then What,'' it's hard to just say no to this single-minded slinger.
