Concert preview: Jeezy at The Xclusive Venue

Staff Writer

Jeezy's latest long-player, Church in These Streets, shows how grand a transition he's made since his critically-applauded The Recession/The Inspiration.

Church is Jeezy at his least gimmicky, a man now more interested in spreading the wealth as opposed to gloating about it. (Well, there's a little of this latter part. I'd be concerned for Jeezy's brand of trap without it.)

The best part is when he teams up with Janelle Monae for "Sweet Life."
