While in New York this weekend for the America’s Most Wanted tour with Lil Wayne, Atlanta rap giant Young Jeezy will be making a stop at Manhattan’s Prime Nightclub for a special performance.
The intimate concert, set for this Friday (July 31), is in celebration of the Snowman’s partnership with Belvedere Vodka. Jeezy first announced his deal with the company in January. “I’m excited to work with Belvedere, it’s my vodka,” he previously said of the relationship. “We have developed a platform called ‘America Reborn’ — they support me as an artist, and share my creative vision. I’ve always known the Belvedere brand represents quality, creativity and self-expression. I see a lot of similarities in what they are doing and feel at home with them.”
Jeezy graces the cover of XXL’s upcoming 12th anniversary issue. In the feature story, Mr. 17.5 speaks on his new disc, Thug Motivation 103 and his beefs with Gucci Mane and DJ Drama, among other topics. The September issue, hits stands on August 11. –Elan Mancini
