I don't know how this is a question at this point but tf you go back a year or so, they were on par.  Looking back, I don't know what happened that made Jeezy fall off.

And this is where the problem starts.

They weren't on par before Albert Anastasia, Jeezy had the better albums and way more sales. All 3 albums went platinum, TM101 was multi-platinum, Jeezy's The Recession stretched in 2009 and Ross' Deeper Than Rap did it's job but it was Jeezy who was on tour with Wayne, on tour with Jay and has the street anthems like "Who Dat", "Welcome Back" and others. Jeezy had the more memorable and recognizable records to mainstream and the streets, not Ross.

That Triple C's album startd Ross' rise and then once AA dropped that basically deaded everything out. Young had no answer, but up to that point he was the clearly the more decorated artist. Port Of Miami had some records on it, but he was rapping just to rap and his voice was still developing. I really can't go back and play that album from top to bottom anymore, Trilla had it's moments but there was too much filler. Even DTR faded off almost near the end.

So, as Jay-Z would say when people try to compare his stuff.....look at the body of work and accomplishments.

For those that only care about right now: Ross is on top
If you're comparing careers: Jeezy's clearly ahead

its ridiculous sometimes how people ride the wave of "whats hot" at the moment, Jeezy is not replaced by Ross.

Jeezy's buzz is climbing up really really fast right now... i hear ALOT of people banging that Real is Back mixtape... alot more than i expected.
Ross is over saturating the game right now, and people are getting tired of hearing him... perfect time for Jeezy to come back and take his lane... 

TM103 WILL be a big deal....

As "big" as of star Ross appears to be (no pun intended) he really aint that huge yet. Like somebody said before he still hasn't gone platinum, and you cant blame that on the times because he and Jeezy have released albums during the same time.

In addition Teflon Don sold LESS during it's first week than P.O.M by about 10,000 copies, yeah the industry as a whole as gone down, but if he's such a much "bigger" star now, how does that happen?

FTR Jeezy sold 170K on TM:101 and 260K for The Recession


And really, if Ross doesn't hop off making B.M.F. part 10380943208 he's gonna fall fast.  At the point it almost seems like more people are anticipating TM: 103 than Ross' new joint....

What Q sad but I'd seen something somewhere where Jeezy said that Twitter was the Feds. When you're an artist wit that mentality towards which was then the newest in social media, it definitely didn't help his career.

AA blew Jeezy out the water.

Going to clubs, listening to radio and mixshows, if you subtract anything Ross released after AA who's music do you hear more of? Ross' career still has work to do. It's even the little things too, Jeezy did that TM101: LIVE show and brought everyone out. That will always be memorable moment in NY, Ross did that big show in NY months back and really had no support? It's little things like that to solidify yourself. I know Ross and Khaled are fiending for an Eminem feature right now, but best believe I would not be shocked if Jeezy gets it faster....mind you Em's ties to 50 won't help the first two.

Yeah, he %%@+@% up there too. While I get his mentality a little, off time just be to yourself and those around, he isn't Em, Jay, or Ye. If he was more welcoming or forward thinking when it came to online presence around the time he dropped "Lose My Mind" it would've helped him.

jeezy never found a legitimate lane outside the trap flow

he doesn't know how NOT to pick street beats

he did it a lil bit on the recession and showcased progression but that's around the time gucci caught fire

that's when jeezy regressed

then ross caught fire

that's when jeezy got straight depressed...straight panic mode




If money didn't change you, YOU'RE NOT MAKING ENOUGH!!!

What do you mean? That thread last year was just Ross vs Jeezy, this one is talking about has Ross taken Jeezy's spot
in the rap game, and happens to need some of those comparisions.

Now Jeezy does have 3 platinum albums and Ross has 4 gold, so technically Ross "isn't on Jeezy's level", but there's no
denying that Rick Ross is very hot right now, and Young Jeezy is definitely in panic mode like somebody said. I don't
really know why either. The Recession wasn't just straight up trap music like before, he showed some very good growth
as far as content and even a bit lyrically, but it seems like all his singles other than "Lose My Mind" have regressed, and
pretty much been forced. "Ballin" with Lil' Wayne just feels basic and screams "this should be hot since Wayne is on it",
and even the remix of "Lose My Mind" with Drake was a pretty desperate reach. Come on now Jeezy. And I do agree
about Jeezy not puttin his dudes on right either. Ross has people goin crazy for Weak Meek Mill, and Wale is
already established. I haven't heard a single person saw "Man that new Blood Raw is bangin", or "Did you hear that
new Slick Pulla"?
