Young Jeezy

When: Sun., March 11 2012

When people say they hate rap music, they're most likely thinking of Young Jeezy or someone just like him. The 34-year-old South Carolina native resurfaced late last year after a three-year break – which is like 21 years in hip-hop terms – with his fourth album, TM:103 Hustlerz Ambition. Legal problems – which included the usual firearms, DUI, and slamming-his-Lamborghini-into-a-taxi troubles – contributed to the delay, and they may have cost the onetime drug dealer his chart dominance. They've certainly aided in his irrelevance. TM:103 (it stands for Thug Motoivation, in case you were wondering) doesn't sound like it was completed in 2008, the year The Recession debuted at No. 1; it sounds like it was made at least a decade earlier, when Southern bounce and barking rhymes about coke, whores, and fast cars actually sold records. The new album comes to life only when guests Jay-Z and André 3000 show up for “I Do.” But they're not joining Jeezy on tour. So you're on your own, fans. 8 p.m. Tickets: $29.99-$40. -- Michael Gallucci
