Sunday, Nov 6, 2011 9:27AM
Grammy-winning rappers Eminem and Jay-Z are just two of the multiple hip-hop stars fans can expect to hear on Young Jeezy's upcoming Thug Motivation 103 album.
While details are still emerging, Jeezy reportedly has a joint track with Jay and OutKast's Andre 3000.
Your favorite trapper's favorite trapper, Young Jeezy, held a listening session a few nights ago for his fourth studio album, TM103: Hustlerz Ambition. The critics' reception was mostly positive, all the talk revolving around track 14, a record that brings Jeezy himself side-to-side with two of hip-hop's greats, Jay-Z & Andre 3000. Sure, that sounds awesome, but the ATL-based rapper failed to play possibly the biggest record of his career during the session, one with Eminem! Yes, you heard us right. Jizzle phoned into Shade 45 earlier today to chop it up with DJ Whoo Kid about the album, among other things. He confirmed that Em would in fact be on the album as well as Jay-Z, Andre 3000, Jadakiss, Fabolous, Ne-Yo, Snoop Dogg, Jill Scott, Plies, and Devin the Dude. TM103: Hustlerz Ambition hits shelves and digital retailers December 20. (Complex)
Around mid-September, Jeezy leaked the tracklisting to his new LP.
"TRACCLISTING THATS ALL! I MAKE IT ROUGH ON THESE N*GGAS. SIDEBAR TWITTER GANGSTA GO TO TWITTA JAIL. ITS THE WORLD!http://pic.twitter.com/Jc2U2xM," he tweeted Monday (September 12).
"1. Talk 2 Me 2. Real Is How Ya Feel 3. Supa Freak 4. Trump 5. L.M.M. 6. Nothin 7. Never Be The Same 8. 38 9. Higher Learning 10. Change Ya Life 11. I Do 12. Trapped 13. Lil Homies 14. Errythang 15. This Ones For You" (Young Jeezy's Twitter)
September reports suggested Jeezy's long-awaited solo effort would miss its scheduled late summer release date.
The album, the long-awaited third installment in Jeezy's Thug Motivation series, is no longer dropping on September 20, and a new date hasn't been announced. This delay is just the latest in a succession of hold-ups that have plagued the album since 2009. Two singles from TM 103 have already dropped, "Ballin'," featuring Lil Wayne, and "Shake Life." (BET)
During a special New York City performance in July, 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)
Thug Motivation 103 is slated to drop Tuesday, December 20th.
