I love hip hop. It’s one of my genres of music. Being from Atlanta, it’s a huge part of the culture. Artists like Outkast, T.I., and Jeezy have continuously represented for the city. Rappers don’t always talk about negative things Some of them drop hidden gems in their songs from time to time. Today, I want to share with you 10 Jeezy quotes that will keep you motivated. If you don’t know who Jeezy is, go here for a quick tutorial.

10 Jeezy Quotes to Keep You Motivated

1. “I used to hit the kitchen lights cockroaches everywhere, hit the kitchen lights now it’s marvel floors everywhere” – Thug Motivation 101 (song) Let’s Get it: TM 101 (album)

At one moment Jeezy talks about being poor and seeing cockroaches scattering all over the place. The next moment he saw marble floors. With hard work, we all can change our situations as Jeezy did. We just have to stay focused.

2. “Might not just be the best, just know I plan to be” – Hustlaz Ambition (song) The Recession (album)

We are all working towards something. We don’t start out being an expert or the best, but you gotta have the foresight to know that you can be.

3. “Let em talk, let em hate, watch the Lincoln navigate” – Amazin (song) The Recession (album)

I love this Jeezy quote. Everyone will not always support you. Some will talk crap and others will hate for no reason. Let them do that while you continue to become more and more successful.

4. “Look up in the sky and tell me what you see, the clouds, Nah homie not me. I see opportunity, I’m an opportunist” – Sky’s the Limit (song) Let’s Get it: TM 101 (album)

Every day that you wake up is another day to create opportunity. Are you going to sit there and let it pass you by or are you going to get out there and make something happen?

5. “You gotta take the time to thank God you made it” – The Real Anthem (song) The Real is Back 2 (mixtape)

This is another one of my favorite Jeezy quotes right here. The struggle is real or has been real for a lot of us. Whatever religion you may be, you have to stop and give thanks to a higher power.

6. “They boxed me in the corner and I came out fighting” – I’m Back (song) Can’t Ban the Snowman (mixtape)

Whether it’s debt, haters, or a dead end job, you can’t afford to let that situation box you in a corner. Life is too short for that. Make a plan and come out fighting.

7. “I say I grind like it’s 10 of me, I swear to God it’s just one of me. Lord I know I ain’t there yet, just know I’m gonna be” – Hustlaz Ambition (song) The Recession (album)

To get somewhere you’ve never been you gotta do things you’ve never done before. Sleeping less and working multiple jobs are two of the things that I’ve done in the past to make things happen. By sacrificing some stuff, you will eventually get to where you want to be at.

8. “If you’re a real hustler, you gon get out here and get it” – 4 Zones (song) Seen it All (album)


Things will not always be easy for you. Are you going to complain about the situation or are you going to get up off your ass and make things happen? Choose wisely.

9. “Every time you see me I grind more and every time you see me I’m in grind mode” – Grind Mode (song) Church in these Streets (album)

It’s the truth. A lot of creatives and business owners stay on grind mode. We want our products to be the best. The only way for that to happen is to continually be in working even if it’s just a little bit.

10. “I can’t wait to see the day I can change where my Momma stay” – Hustlaz Ambition (song) The Recession (album)

Out of all the Jeezy quotes, this may be my favorite. I heard this Jeezy lyric 12 years ago when I was a senior in college. It has stuck with me over the years. A lot of children want to be able to give back to their mother or father once they become successful and are able to. I know I want to make sure my mother is taken care of. This is one of the things I think about if I lose a little motivation.

Do you have an artist that motivates you every once in a while?

  1. I don’t have a particular artist I listen to for inspiration, but music really does keep you going in hard times, doesn’t it?

    I’m totally out of touch with the hip-hop scene. Never even heard of Jeezy. But I love the one “They boxed me in the corner and I came out fighting.” It just makes me think of some guy getting pushed back into a corner that suddenly turns into a boxing ring, and he’s coming back at them swinging. I think we’ve all felt the former at some point, and hopefully most of us have achieved the latter!

  2. This reminds me of my college days when I used to go to the casino basically every other week to play poker. We’d always play Jeezy’s “I Luv It.” Hundreds on the table, twenties on the floor!

  3. Hey Bruh I like the motivation!! I can remember lesson to those song on Chatham Street

  4. Love this! Most people don’t listen to lyrics these days but they can be very impactful.

    1. Impactful is an understatement. I think some people can damn near be controlled by certain types of music especially if they have a weak mind.

  5. Well I’ve got to admit, Jeezy is not in my playlist. Lol. But I did go to your link to read up on him. And who doesn’t need a bit of motivation. When you break it down like you did he has a very moving message.

  6. Jay-Z is one of my go-to’s for motivation. One of his lines that keeps me going: Difficult takes a day, impossible takes a week.
