Young Jeezy Set To Celebrate LP Release Party In ATL And More In “The Roundup”

Michael Phelps is the Young Jeezy of the swim world, according to Da Snowman. Now, Jeezy ain’t no athlete, but the former trap star is set to put forth an Olympian-sized effort when he celebrates the release of his latest LP (Lil Kim and Fabolous helped him celebrate in NYC), The Recession, which hit stores today. On Wednesday September 3, The Def Jam star will perform at The Tabernacle. Jeezy is also scheduled to appear tomorrow at an in-store signing at North Georgia Compact and host an after-party for his show at The Velvet Room.

They’re two of the West Coast’s finest and now Snoop Dogg and Ice Cube will be on their global grind as the two rappers headline shows in New Zealand and Australia. Bone Thugs-N-Harmony are also set to join the bill. Cube and BTNH were added to the lineup without any problems, however, Snoop’s involvement raised eyebrows. The Long Beach star’s criminal record caused immigration officials to investigate his past. But the rapper was eventually granted a work visa. The international jaunt kicks off October 27 and runs until November 7.

DMX maybe have gotten out of jail recently, but the rapper hasn’t escaped the aim of PETA. The animal rights group has urged prosecutors in Arizona–where X was arrested on animal cruelty charges–to throw the book at him. The group is asking that a judge sentence him and order a psychological evaluation.—XXL staff

    I can’t believe that you idiots are saying “The Recession” is a great album and Jeezy is a revolutionary. What the fuck happened to hip-hop. Stop riding dick and actually listen to lyrics before u drop to your knees to praise some country, fuck nigga like Jeezy. Revolutionaries do not glorify selling coke and shooting guns. GET IT TOGETHER

  • TOWN BUSINESS

    @trickDD… non spelling broad (serious) not series..
    And prince ceasar you hoe I bought the recession because of the artist not because of hip hop . I would buy you one but it seems like you are on your cycle

  • Tony Grand$

    I can’t believe it took a group of pacifist animal lovers to bring psychiatric evaluation into the whole DMX fiasco! That makes no sense that a judge hasn’t already orded one. WestCoast to the full, but I couldn’t care less bout Snoop, Cube and Bone (wtf??) In Kangarooland. Lastly, Jeezy gotta lotta hype to live up to. We shall see…

  • Prince Ceasar

    Town, um..so basically you’re saying that you are a dickrider. Jeezy is already rich, why are you putting more money in his pocket. Dumb, broke niggas like yourself always finish last.

    Real shit, that Young Jeezy album was garbage. I was checking for it too since he started talking about adressing the current state of our country. I was gonna burn it but I listened to it after I downloaded it and just decided to delete the whole shit! Almost every song got that same simple ass drum machine pattern with the same bullshit drum roll intro and Jeezy always had that raspy smokers voice but on some of the songs he sound like he got bronchitis or some shit. YYYYEEEEAAAAHHHH! Thought I was gonna drop some cash on that? Fuck outta here!
