For two decades, Jay “Jeezy” Jenkins has used his raspy, Southern voice to tell epic tales of surviving squalor and becoming rich. Where some rappers come off as elitist after completing their meteoric rise from humble beginnings, Jeezy takes the angle of a caring professor sharing words of wisdom in hopes of inspiring the next generation of hustlers. The best part of the 40-year-old rapper’s stories of struggle-turned-triumph is that along the way he drops many gems that can be applied to any lifestyle. Jeezy’s latest opus, Pressure, sees him crafting vibes similar to his major-label debut Let’s Get It: Thug Motivation 101, which turns 13 this July. For this he shares the stage with Tee Grizzley (pictured above).

$54-$56. SOLD OUT. 8 p.m. Sat., March 10. Tabernacle, 152 Luckie St N.W. 404-659-9022. www.tabernacleatl.com.
