Thug Motivation: 7 Young Jeezy Songs (Probably) Found On President Obama’s iPod

There’s some executive at FOX News who probably sharted himself after hearing President Obama’s White House Correspondents’ Dinner admission to listening to Young Jeezy. And while they’ll paint it as a negative, this gives us here at TSS an opportunity to guess which Snowman songs from The Commander In Chief listens to while riding around and getting it. Of course, Jeezy’s 2008 ode to Barry O., “My President,” is on shuffle, but here’s a list of seven other tracks I’m pretty sure The Prez has spun at least once or twice.

1. Jay-Z Feat. Young Jeezy – “Real As It Gets” — Chances are, Barack probably stumbled across Jeezy through listening to his friend Jay-Z’s music. It was probably “Go Crazy,” yet something tells me “Real As It Gets” hits home for a guy who prides himself on being genuine. Catchy enough to have been a single, yet still packing enough punch to still get love as one of those “underrated” tracks from both catalog’s, I imagine our President listening to this before a big meeting with the United Nations.

2. U.S.D.A. – “Corporate Thuggin'” — Selected for obvious reasons, becoming successful in any venture requires a person to go against the grain, work hard and piss a few people off in the process. Given the way his detractors have attempted to uncover even a small amount of dirt against Barry for over five years now, it should go without saying Barack Obama did his own version of “corporate thuggin'” to get to 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. Now that I think about it, “Hood Politics” would’ve worked here, too.
