When he last performed in NYC, Young Jeezy put on for the five boroughs, bringing the city into a frenzy with his star-studded lineup. Last night (December 20) was no different as Da Snowman managed to ring in Nas, Fabolous, and Jadakiss at his sold-out TM:103 concert at the famous Gramercy Theatre.
After Funkmaster Flex warmed up the packed house with his skills on the 1s and 2s, Jeezy —to much appraise— emerged and held court kicking things off with his Real Is Back chest-pumping anthem, “Win.”
“They like cot damn Young, nigga where that album at?/Niggas talking like he fell off, just imagine that/Know anything about Young he, aint havin’ that/Flip a 20 to another 20 more, he a acrobat,” he spit.

Dappered in a brown leather jacket, off-white thermal, Louis Vuitton belt, and Timberland Constructs, the man of the hour ran into his fiery cuts “Go Crazy” (sans Jay-Z), “Who Dat,” “Bottom of the Map,” and more before revealing to the crowd, “I’m just getting started…this jus my warm up.”
As TM:103‘s current street-sweeper “OJ” echoed throughout the house, Young brought out Fabolous and Jadakiss to join him in delivering the collabo.
“That’s what the fuck you call crew love,” he bellowed after the performance. That wasn’t the only surprise up his sleeve however. Before long, the instrumental to Nas’ “Made You Look” roared through the speakers and the QB lyricist made his way to the stage performing his crowd-favorite. At this point, it was complete pandemonium.
“It aint a lot of thugs left in this rap shit,” Mr. Jones hollered, “This a real thug right here”— pointing at Jeezy. The two Def Jam heavyweights then performed their ’08 hit, “My President.”
As the night drew to a close following Snow running through more hits from his ample catalog including “F.A.M.E.,” “I Do,” “Standing Ovation,” “Trap Or Die,” “Get Your Mind Right,” and more, he went on to thank the NYC crowd and his loyal fans affirming, “I thank each and everyone of yall, real nigga shit.”
“I do this shit for yall, till death do us part,” he added.
