Young Jeezy Halts Interview To Announce New Name Change

Young Jeezy "Streets On Lock" (2006)

After going by Young Jeezy for the decade long duration of his rap career, the Atlanta rapper is losing the “Young” and will simply go by, Jeezy. Mr. Jenkins was recently on MTV’s RapFix with Sway chopping it up about getting props from President Obama when he decided to announce the alteration to his moniker. “It’s Jeezy now,” said the Snowman when referenced as “Young” Jeezy by Sway. “I’m grown now. I did enough of that. It sounds good because when I came into the game, that’s what I was and that was my state of mind. But I’m a grown man now. Jeezy. It’s all good. We got a little older now.”
