Here’s Some Thug Motivation: Young Jeezy Talks Album Cameos, New Single ‘O.J.,’ & More

This Tuesday (December 20), platinum-selling rapper Young Jeezy will be releasing his 3rd installment (Thug Motivation 103: Hustlaz Ambition) to his Thug Motivation sequel. The disc has collaborations with Jay-Z, Fabolous, Ne-Yo, Snoop Dogg and more. In an interview with Billboard: The Juice, Jeezy talked about TM103 and his new single “O.J.” Ft. Jadakiss and Fabolous. Below are some excerpts:

On working with Jill Scott.

I was put onto Jill while sitting in Las Vegas kicking it with Beyoncé at the pool,” Jeezy told Billboard.com’s The Juice. “We did a couple of attempts, then Jill’s like, ‘Let me write something.’ She wrote, sent it back and I loved it. The song is basically my life story… my whole description of what I’ve been through in two verses, with her bridge.”

On his single “O.J.” Ft Jadakiss and Fabolous.

O.J.” is that life. It’s like, ‘We’re going to get away with this shit.’ I mean, we was killing that white chick. That’s what we do,” Jeezy said.

New York’s DJ, DJ Funk Master Flex premiered “O.J.” yesterday and it subtly correlates the clearance of street hustling with O.J. Simpson’ s relieve of charge. “He was acquitted, he didn’t do it, right?” Jeezy joked.

It’s basically saying, ‘What you know about champagne every night?’ ‘What you know about all these women every where?’ ‘What you know about sleeping on the bed shit?’ If you don’t you need to know. You need to get on the grind,'” Jeezy told The Juice.

There’s No Beef: Gucci Mane & Young Jeezy Squashed Beef, But Gooch Can’t See Himself Recording With Jeezy Again

In a recent sit down interview with MTV’s “RapFix Live” , Gucci Mane revealed that he and Young Jeezy squashed their beef again. Below are some excerpts:

On squashing beef with Young Jeezy.

On the strength of [the fact that] anything could have happened between not just me and him [but] between our camps, we just came to a sit-down of just respecting the fact that somebody can get hurt, and it ain’t going to be us,” Gucci said. “That’s what made us do that.”

On recording with Young Jeezy again.

I don’t think so. We started the conversation, but I can’t see it happening.”

Gooch and Waka collaborative LP, titled Ferrari Boyz  is now in stores and online. Jeezy’s Thug Motivation 103 is scheduled to hit shelves September 20.

TM103: Young Jeezy Says His New Album Is Influenced By The Economic Decline & Tupac

This past Monday (July 25), Def Jam rapper Young Jeezy celebrated the six-year anniversary of his debut album Thug Motivation 101, at the Highline Ballroom in NYC. During the end of Jeezy’s show, he announced that his new album Thug Motivation 103 will be out September 20. In a recent interview with MTV, Jeezy talked about how the economic decline and the words of Tupac influenced his upcoming album. I like how Jeezy mixes politics with street music.

On when he dropped TM 101 money was so plentiful.

TM 101 dropped at a time when money was so plentiful that you could’ve had too much of it at some point, and everybody was happy,” he said. “Everybody was flamboyant, everybody was living, and nowadays it ain’t like that. So when I dropped TM 101, my whole focus was, ‘We’re gonna get this money and that’s what it’s about. We’re gonna get this money, we’re gonna live life, we’re gonna have fun.’”

On TM 103 and maintaining the money he has.

The evolution of that [with] 103 is more sort of like situations, like, ‘OK, yeah we got to the money, we lost it two or three times, but what are we gonna do to maintain? Are we gonna maintain? Are we gonna get back? Are we gonna stay focused on the get back, or we gonna get off track? Are we gonna pay attention to what they’re talkin’ about, or pay attention to what we need to do?’ That’s what the evolution is about.”

On Tupac’s words and music influencing his new album.

It’s about knowing what to do. When I was growin’ up and I was listening to ‘Pac, all his situations apply to me today,” he noted. “I never knew that, I was just listening to the music and I thought it was good music. Everything that he said applies to me today. Keep your enemies close, money over bitches – that’s real talk.”

New Music: Young Jeezy Ft. Lil Wayne “Ballin”

Rapper Young Jeezy is still struggling to make another dope record. By the way, I was a fan of Jeezy’s until he diss Rick Ross. Honestly, I am not feeling Jeezy music like I used to. His first two albums were classics, now I don’t what type of music he’s putting out. The Atlanta native just dropped a new track titled “Ballin” Ft Lil Wayne. On this record, I only like Wayne’s verse.

Will TM103 ever see the light of day?

Breaking News: Young Jeezy’s ‘Thug Motivation 103′ Pushed Back Indefinitely, Now He’s left Without A Release Date

Please check the four side banner ads on the right and take advantage of the exclusive offers.

Def Jam recording artist Young Jeezy’s forthcoming LP Thug Motivation 103 has been pushed back indefinitely, according to Hip-Hop N More and Rap Radar. I previously reported that Jeezy’s album was scheduled to hit stores on December 14th  http://yodonbleekraps.com/2010/10/11/young-jeezy-gets-his-wig-push-back-again-will-tm103-ever-see-the-light-of-day/, now he is left without a release date. As of posting there is no reason on why Jeezy’s album has been pushed back. Since the spring of this year, Jeezy has released three singles from the album —“Jizzle,” “All White Everything” featuring Yo Gotti and “Lose My Mind” featuring Plies.

Now the million dollar question is, will Jeezy new album ever see the light of day? I don’t have the answer to that but I do know that Jeezy isn’t happy over at Def Jam. On September 1st, I published a story stating that “Young Jeezy Isn’t Happy At Def Jam, Will Jay-Z Bring Him To Roc Nation” http://yodonbleekraps.com/2010/09/01/young-jeezy-isnt-happy-at-def-jam-will-jay-z-bring-him-to-roc-nation/. There are a few rumors and speculation that Jay-Z is trying to bring Jeezy to Roc Nation. I am hearing that Jay-Z has stepped in to help Young Jeezy. According to sources, Jay is trying to get Def Jam to let Young Jeezy out of his contract, so Jay can bring him to Roc Nation. If all goes right, Jeezy’s next album will come out on Roc Nation.
