    On opener "Thug Motivation 101" Jeezy pounds his chest and growls, "I used to hit the kitchen lights, cockroaches er'where/ Now I hit the kitchen lights, there's marble floors er'where" over tense, eerie keyboards. It's a joyous moment but also the scariest album opener I've heard this year. He breathes hard on the track and stares down his microphone like it hates him. He punctuates the song with his calling card. By now Da Snowman's ad-libs are things of legend. Unbridled "Daaaayuums" and everlasting "Yeeeeaaahs" or "Thaaaaat's riiiiight"s punctuate each song.
