The “Snowman” came through to the Observatory OC last Tuesday night, with an outstanding show in support of his recently released album, Seen It All.
Atlanta rapper, Young Jeezy had been absent from the game, sticking strictly to limited amount of features withe other artists, but all that changed as earlier this year he announced a new album in the works by the title Seen It All: The Autobiography.
In interviews, Jeezy had mentioned the title to the album signified his feeling of having been through a lot in his life up to this point, he’s felt he’s seen it all to say the least. This would be Jeezy’s 5th studio album since his coming into the music industry in 2005.
Seen It All dropped late this Summer and was a bit of an exciting anticipation for his fans, for it was the first album album from the rapper in 3 years. The album generated great attention from critics and brought forth Young Jeezy’s loyal fan-base, as well as new supporters, which has been reflected in album and tour date sales.
The Seen It All tour made a stop in the city of Santa, Ana (CA) at the Observatory OC bringing another sold out event to the venue.
Young Jeezy has made a successful living by stepping out of slanging narcotics to slanging raps about slanging the first since 2005. Did I lose you there? Let me put it this way, Jeezy’s nickname “Snowman” doesn’t derive from Winter being his favorite season. By the myriad of people that filled the venue from the front of the stage to the back of the upstairs floor, it was evident that Young Jeezy’s success is nothing to question.
The tour’s on-stage scenery was well designed, as a giant plasma screen was displayed in the middle of the stage and the DJ booth was raised up on a platform about 8 feet behind it. At around 11:15pm the lights dimmed and the screen began an autobiographical introduction as it played a reel of pictures that glimpsed into Jeezy’s life.
Young Jeezy suddenly stepped on stage and the crowd jumped into a frenzy. Everyone was ecstatic over his presence. Jeezy began the show by performing a few songs off Seen It All. Everyone seemed to know the lyrics as I saw people reciting the lines with hands up in excitement.
Jeezy proved to hold longevity, and the crowd proved him loyalty as they rapped along to tracks that dated back to his 2005 debut.
Young Jeezy performed hit songs off his albums Let’s Get It: Thug Motivation 101, The Inspiration, The Recession, and Thug Motivation 103: Hustlerz Ambition. Tracks included “Soul Survivor”, “I Luv It”, “Hustlaz Ambition”, and “Leave You Alone”, among others.
Personally, I was a bit surprised at how many Young Jeezy fans we have in our city- the venue was completely filled! And I’m not talking about being filled with people who are just looking to get out the house, I’m talking about being filled with people who were real fans and knew word for word every track he performed. That was amazing to witness.
Jeezy really brought an outstanding performance to the Observatory on this Seen It All tour.
Thanks to all the fans that got OUT DA HOUSE with us came and made this event a success.
