First, he says "Yeah" all the time biting Lil' Jon who doesn't even rap. "Soul Survivor" is the name of a Pete Rock album. "Guess who's bizzack" is a line from a Jay-Z song.
Second, he doesn't even have his own persona. There must be a million drug-dealer-turned-rappers out there, Jay-Z being the first to really bring it to the mainstream.
Finally, he has a terrible, garbage flow. You hear the first part of one of his bars, and you will be able to guess how the rest of it goes...that is, unless it's a lyric he bit from a Jay-Z song, in which case you won't be able to guess. The only other time you might not be able to guess what he'll say next is when he pulls a DMX and just repeats himself.
Best of all, he says "dayum" or "yeah" after every bar. Funny, MCs used to do that when they said something ill, not rhyming "hell" and "jail" for the millionth time. Next time you listen to a Jeezy song, count how many times he rhymes "chain" and "thang".
No need to brag, man these hoes love jeezy, they just love my swag, the way I do my thang, I'm just a young ghetto nigga with a big ass chain
Despite what some interpret as biting other rap artists style's such as "Your favorite rapper's favorite rapper" from Devin the Dude to "Guess who's bizzack" from Jay-Z, Jeezy's respect in the street is one best witnessed in the street. If one cannot understand Jeezy's style, one will most likely never understand the A-town style or, even more likely, any of the South's style.
When newly emerging Southern artists come and go, Jeezy, hate em or not, will always be there.
"We don't just say no --we too busy sayin, "Yeeeeeeeeeeeeeeah.""
