    Default The Gospel of Beta According to Young Jeezy

    So I'm listening to the USDA Cold Summer album and it strikes me that some of the songs have themes that, while nearly all Beta on the whole, seem to have more of one Beta type's "message" than the others. It's not like there is a specific fit or anything in particular that says anything about what "type" the song is other than the general feel/theme of the song, but it sounded like a cool idea so I figured I'd share

    EIE:
    Corporate Thuggin'
    I Keep Tellin' Myself

    LSI:
    Get It Up
    Check

    SLE:
    Focus
    Go Getta Remix

    IEI:
    Pam ("Baby off the chain..." lol it's an SLE chick )
    Ride Tonight


    Anyways there's nothing specific about these songs that makes them these types but it's fun to think about "type anthems," and I think Beta (also Gamma) themes tend to come out a lot in rap.
    But, for a certainty, back then,
    We loved so many, yet hated so much,
    We hurt others and were hurt ourselves...

    Yet even then, we ran like the wind,
    Whilst our laughter echoed,
    Under cerulean skies...

    Hah, that's a good album. . .
    Corporate Thuggin' being my favourite, but not for any particular Beta-related reason; the instrumental for that song is ill as hell.
    IEI, perhaps Fe sub.

    Yeah, my personal favorites are Focus, Corporate Thuggin', and Get It Up.
