Jeezy Signs to United Talent Agency
Jeezy has garnered a long list of accomplishments throughout his lengthy career in music and entertainment, and his accolades have now earned him another major contract deal. The Thug Motivation 101 rapper has reportedly signed to United Talent Agency for worldwide representation in all areas.
Over the course of his music career, the Atlanta native has released eight albums, and has sold more than 5 million records. Trap or Die 3, his most recent album that dropped last year, debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 albums chart, which was the third No. 1 project of his career. All of his studio albums have previously reached the Top 10 on the Billboard 200.
The hip-hop entrepreneur is managed by Solomon Fornie, and has found a lot of success outside of music in different business ventures, as well as in his philanthropy work. Last year, he was honored by Forbes for his accomplishments with his clothing lines, liquor partnerships, real estate and record labels over the years.
The rapper isn't the first to sign with UTA, as the brand has previously signed deals with G.O.O.D. Music's Pusha T, Desiigner and Tyga for representation in all areas in the U.S. and select global territories.
As far as any recent releases, Jeezy has kept things a bit quieter on the music front this year, aside from a major feature on Rick Ross' "Dead Presidents" track off of his Rather You Than Me album that dropped back in March.
Congratulations to Jeezy on another major feat in his career. We're excited to see what comes next with his new deal.
