Fans anticipating the new Young Jeezy Thug Motivation 103 album will be happy to hear the Atlanta rapper has no plans on further delaying his long-awaited new LP.
Confirming its September 20th release, Jizzle said the date is a sure bet.
"It's locked, it's dead-locked. It's time to go! September 20, how y'all want it," Jeezy said in an interview. "At the end of the day, I'm not about to give nobody no music to make a deadline, I'm gonna give them something to live and die by. If it ain't classic, it ain't monumental, I don't want to be a part of it. I make hits, man. I make classics. I can't just give somebody something just 'cause it's time. It's better late than never baby, trust." (MTV)
During a special New York City performance this week, the rapper said his album would drop heading into the fall.
Taking the stage at Highline Ballroom, Jeezy revealed that his oft-delayed fourth LP will drop this fall. "My ni**a Kinky B. just told me that TM103 will be in stores September 20. Goodnight, I love ya'll!" he told the crowd at the end of his 75-minute set, which featured appearances from Jay-Z, Kanye West, Fabolous, The Lox, and Bun B. (Rap-Up)
TM103 producer Drumma Boy recently talked to SOHH about Jeezy's delayed LP.
"I'm extremely therapeutic to everybody I work with," Drumma Boy told SOHH. "So it's not like I"m just selling beats or passing off beats for 'this' person to rap on and 'this' person to rap on. I might just have a conversation with you that changes your life or I might tell Jeezy one or two things that he could do to flip around. It's things like that, that can really help the moves that he makes. We look out for each other like that. It's more of a therapeutic situation, making sure he gets what he needs. I did a record with him and Travis Barker. We got a special guest on the features, so stay tuned to that. I mean, Jeezy is a, when I speak on consistent grind, he has to be probably the leader in that category as far as consistency and how many records he's doing and how much he's doing with the clothing line and how much he's doing on tour, overseas, with the kids and charity events."

Last week, Jeezy opened up about his difficulty trying to remain focused on the LP.
"It took a long time to get the direction I was going, but when I got in the zone everything locked up," Jeezy explained. "I had to go back and recollect because it got to a point where I was so far away from what I know and what was helping me articulate my music. I'm on tour with [Lil] Wayne, so that's that rapstar superstar life--and I love it by the way--but then I had to go back home just to see what was really real, so I could take that from the streets and spread the word."
