Bloggy Bonilla and Silent G are back with Comprehensive Beatdown Episode #21. This week, the guys take another step back into time to discuss Let’s Get It: Thug Motivation 101, Young Jeezy’s debut album with Def Jam. Released on July 26, 2005, the album is considered by many to be a classic of the past decade, both for the Atlanta Trap genre and hip hop in general.
The guys also listen to a track from Mbongwana Star as well as the first of the “Meow The Jewels” songs from Run the Jewels.
I’m not a big fan of Don Cannon’s production, most of it is overly simplistic. Now, he chooses to talk the same Billy Paul sample that Dilla and 9th Wonder both crushed on their attempts. However, I’m not sure if it’s Jeezy’s presence, which I admit, out of all the trap rappers, he’s probably my favorite. But, when I picked up the album and this track came on, I must have listened to it 10 times in a row. It just worked so well, the introspective trap-star goes in on the track. Jeezy’s Recession album is a pretty decent album too.
BILLY PAUL – LET THE DOLLARS CIRCULATE
9TH WONDER – LET THE DOLLARS CIRCULATE
J DILLA – LET THE DOLLARS CIRCULATE
I wonder who was watching the trap the day they were recording this?

I know, I know, I know….but Jeezy is dope and Freddie Gibbs is one of the best up and coming rappers
