Young Jeezy says "TM-103: Hustlerz Ambition" (Island Def Jam) will be the final installment in his "Thug Motivation" series, which is probably for the best. It's a great concept that's hard to live up to, though he does manage it here with some help from his friends. "I Do" with Jay-Z and Andre 3000 is a smart twist on modern love, as is "Leave You Alone" with Ne-Yo, while Jill Scott is fierce in "Trapped." Unfortunately, when Jeezy comes up short, the high points make it more noticeable.
