If you’re not in Atlanta or couldn’t score tickets to Jeezy’s special 10 year anniversary show of his Thug Motivation 101 album, you’re in luck. The Snowman’s performance from the stage of the Fox Theater on Saturday night (July 25) will be streaming live on TIDAL.

Recently, the “Put On” rapper took to Instagram to reminisce about the creation of his debut album.

“When I said that the roaches were in the kitchen, I meant that! So now when I tell you the floors look like bowling balls, I mean that too,” wrote Jeezy. “You can call it rags to riches, but I like to call it a boy becoming a man and believing in his dreams, goals and expectations. I never thought of “fame” or being accepted in this industry; my only thoughts were to represent and speak for every man, woman and child that was in the struggle and just wanted to make a better way of life, without taking no for an answer. With every song, verse and adlib on this body of work, you can hear that determination, that ambition and that drive in every word.”

The stream will start at 9PM ET. Until then TIDAL has a The Best Of Jeezy playlist to hold you over. But you do have Thug Motivation 101 in your personal collection anyway, right?
