What makes a summer song? It's sweaty but never sad about it. The right summer smash makes you put the double-decker barbecue plate on your lawn chair, pour out something cool and get close to the speakers. It's naked and unashamed, of course. The song's gotta be loud. Not volume-wise either. You need to be able to open that sunroof, lower the windows on the highway and still annoy passersby with the bass drop. They're great songs because they're disposable songs. A summer jam is the wet wipe of music: refreshing as it is fleeting and oh so useful at the right time. Load these songs into your playlist and be the DJ you always wanted for the weekend.

Young Thug to the rescue! It's safe to say if you're in desperate need for a dope hook or unique verse to set your song over the top then Thugger is your go-to guy. And on DJ Drama's "Right Back" that very notion rings true, as Thugger Thugger handles hook duties, chorus duties, and has the most memorable verse amongst Young Jeezy and Rich Homie Quan. The Young Thug stimulus package is too strong. Listen after the jump for proof.
First he blessed us with the ill Kendrick Lamar feature on the remix and now Jeezy brings us the official music video for "Holy Ghost".
