Young Jeezy was a major force in the rap world for the latter part of the last decade, first gaining national notoriety for his work in the group under Bad Boy Records, Boyz N Da Hood in 2005. However, Jeezy soon went back to being a solo artist and released Thug Motivation 101 that same year to huge street buzz and commercial success. Since then he has released Thug Motivation 102 and The Recession with Thug Motivation 103 slated for release soon. I wanted to make a list of Young Jeezy’s best songs so I chose some from each of his first three albums that I thought were the top tracks. I may have skipped over your favorite Jeezy song and that’s fine these are just my opinion. So with that in mind let’s get into the 14 best Young Jeezy songs from his albums only.

Standing Ovation– The production on this track is simply fantastic and Jeezy’s flow goes great with it. Standing Ovation is still one of the best tracks he has ever made.
Let’s Get It/ Sky’s The Limit– This song is a great one for motivation and focusing yourself on going out there and getting your money.
Go Crazy– This song was pretty big back in 2005 and had a few remixes to go along with it. The instrumental is awesome.
Get Ya Mind Right– Minus the bullshit life’s great. This song is slower and not as heavy as a lot of his songs but once again has top notch production and a catchy hook.
Air Forces– I went from old school Chevy’s to drop top Porsche’s, you couldn’t walk a mile off in my Air Forces.
I Luv It– I Luv It was one of the single’s from Thug Motivation 102 and the beat is amazing even if the rapping isn’t necessarily up to par. Lil Wayne also used the beat for his mixtape song I’m Blooded.
Go Getta– Jeezy teams up with R Kelly on this club banger that features a solid beat and memorable hook.
Mr. 17.5– Jeezy slows it down on this song but he sticks to his usual topic which isn’t a bad thing because it definitely works on Mr. 17.5.
3 AM– He gets help from Timbaland on this track with a cool hook and a killer beat but Jeezy handles his business and spits with pure confidence in his abilities.
Put On– This song definitely gave me more respect for Jeezy even if he did get outshined by Kanye West on here and by Jay-Z on the remix, still he does his thing and the song is great.
My President– This is one of my favorite songs by Young Jeezy because of the instrumental and the fact that we get a verse from Nas on here.
Everything– Everything features both Anthony Hamilton and Lil Boosie. Though I don’t always like Boosie he does work well on this track.
Crazy World– This song hits hard though lyrically he tries to add some depth the verses aren’t all that great but it still sounds good.
Amazin’– Jeezy of course is at his most braggadocio on Amazin’ and he definitely delivers one of the best tracks off of The Recession.
