“from the trap to the world to grammy nominations to the boardroom my n—a @YoungJeezy,” his right hand DJ Folk tweeted shortly after.
Jeezy’s most recent LP “TM 103: Hustlerz Ambition,” is now certified gold, having already yielded a number of singles including the Ne-Yo-assisted “Leave You Alone.”
Jeezy also fronts his CTE World (Corporate Thugz Entertainment) label, which features such up and coming MCs as Freddie Gibbs, Tone Trump and Boo Rossini.
