A little over six years ago, the music world was introduced to Atlanta’s rapper Young Jeezy as a member of Boyz ‘N Da Hood, before pursing his solo career. The Def Jam signee released three platinum albums such as Let’s Get It: Thug Motivation 101, The Inspiration and The Recession. Tomorrow Tuesday (December 20), Jeezy will be releasing his fourth solo album, entitled Thug Motivation 103: Hustlaz Ambition. The disc has collaborations with Jay-Z, Fabolous, Ne-Yo, Snoop Dogg and more. As we all should know by now, most artists albums are leaked months before the scheduled date. Jeezy’s disc was leaked and now he’s looking for the n***a who leaked it. GlobalGrind caught up with Young Jeezy to find out all the inside details of creating TM103: Hustlerz Ambition, as well as his inspiration behind TM:103 Hustlerz Ambition documentary. Below are some excerpts:
TM103, we’ve been waiting for this, which seems like forever. It leaked online already.
Yeah, I’m looking for the n*gga who leaked my sh*t.
What was the journey of putting together TM103? It’s been two years in the making.
It wasn’t really a journey. I had a few things happen in between, a couple of things with some of my homies, a little light sh*t. I was always working. That’s why I kept putting out mixtapes. When I thought about it, I wanted to put the album out the top of the year, 2012. That was my plan. That’s why I do my albums with my own money, so I can control it. Because the labels wanna do things on their own time to meet their quotas. I get it. But sometimes when you’re making music for a culture, you gotta do it when the time is right. It becomes microwaved shit, put it in 15 minutes and you move to the next.
None of your album have been “microwaved sh*t.”
Because I always pay for them. So they gotta wait on me. They can’t out it out because they have no music.
