Ranking Jeezy’s Mixtapes From Worst To Best


Young Jeezy made ends meet moving another type of weight. He was relentless on the streets, making the transition from drug-dealing narrator to one of hip-hop’s biggest names on the corporate level. Through his grind, Jeezy served the block with a string of pre-album mixtapes that established him as a hometown hero. The ATL trap star was brash and unfiltered on all 13 mixtapes, blowing up on a national scale for tracks that earned him his Snowman nickname. Now, he’s about to make his name ring loud again with the release of Its Tha World 2.

Jeezy’s mixtape discography revealed his work ethic in consistently keeping his name relevant in the game. During his run, he was also building up his roster at CTE, signing Freddie Gibbs and following up with Doughboyz Cashout and YG. Add his platinum-selling albums throughout his career, and there is no doubt that Jeezy mastered the formula of building buzz and capitalizing on the momentum. Once again, Jizzle is returning to the basics.

His beef with Def Jam may be public, but that isn’t going to stop him from releasing quality street music. His moment back in the limelight might be sooner than you think, so here’s a reminder of his dopeness. We’ve decided to rank Jeezy’s tapes from worst to best, placing his highly regarded Trap Or Die, as well as his sleeper hits. Let the debate begin.—Eric Diep And M.T. Richards

    OK Eric This Is Epic. Its So Much Material To Classify I Damn Near Didn’t Want To Comment! But I Immediately Thought Trap Or Die As The Mona Lisa. This Ranking Is Very Accurate. Shouts Out To 2 People Responsible For Making SIW & TOD What They Were. Big Meech & DJ Drama! I Would’ve Put Streets Is Watchin At #2 But that’s Taking Nothing Away From This Dope Piece. I Fux Wit Jee. Hedid it All Over Again With Its The World. I Think He Will Do It Again!!! #SALUTE
