Southern rapper Young Jeezy‘s upcoming Thug Motivation 103 album will reportedly be released in late summer.
According to reports, Jeezy’s delayed The Recession follow-up will hit stores in August.
Young Jeezy is motivated to get his album out by the end of summer. The rapper has set a new release date for his oft-delayed project. The Atlanta MC’s fourth major label studio album Thug Motivation 103 is scheduled to drop on August 31, Rap-Up.com has learned. It has been delayed numerous times since last year, but looks to have finally found its footing. Two singles, “All White Everything” and the street anthem “Lose My Mind,” have been sent to digital retailers and radio. (Rap-Up)
Producer Drumma Boy recently talked about working on Jeezy’s new album.
“With Jeezy, it’s funny because when it comes to the music, I already know what he wants,” Drumma said in an interview. “We’ve never actually worked in the studio together. The first time I ever heard ‘Put On’ was on the radio. [Laughs] Just the other day, he called me as soon as I woke up. First call of the day. He was like, ‘Where you at? I need to get some more music.’ I’ll give him the intersection I’m at and he’ll just ride down right then, pick up a beat CD and keep it moving. It’s like a real dope deal. I really got crack! [Laughs] All our joints come that way. Even with [the album’s street single] ‘Lose My Mind,’ I didn’t hear that until we mixed it. So I can’t tell you exactly what I’ve got on there yet, but in addition to “Lose My Mind,” I’m gonna have two of three other joints on the album.” (VIBE)
Jeezy previously discussed what rap fans could expect to hear from the upcoming project earlier this year.
“But June, by the way,” he said of the LP’s release date. “That’s what I’m thinking. If you the boss, you can talk like that. I’m thinking June. I wanna own the summer. If you coming out [with an album] in June, you might wanna think about that, bruh. TM103, I will be there…I’m just going in, basically handling my business. I gotta say what’s on my mind. But I’m not here to sell you on no album. Like I said, June, you will be surprised, homie. That’s real talk. I been working on this. I been back in the lab…I got you.” (MTV)
Aside from the album, Jeezy recently talked about his close relationship with fellow Atlanta, Georgia rapper T.I.
“I always took this thing like me and Tip was like Big and Jay. Just in the sense of we always coexist. We really never had no issues or nothing we couldn’t work out. And if it was it was just whatclub we meeting at. What time, you know what I’m saying? Anything he’s done, I’ve pretty much supported him, just as well as anything I’ve done, he pretty much supported me. He like the cat on the other side of town who get money, too. And it’s like that. You could be in the city and two n*ggas run the city, you know what I’m saying? Like, we been on a few tours together, you know, did a couple of classic records, and um, it’s just one of those thngs. That’s how I always looked at it. Like we was like Big and Jay. Pac and Snoop.” (VIBE)
