Young Jeezy Drops The ‘Young’ From His Moniker

Young JeezyIt’s been over five years since Young Jeezy stormed into the game with his debut album Let’s Get It. Over his music biz experience, he’s grown and wants to show that with a name change.

According to a report from Rap-Up.com, the 32-year-old rapper isn’t feeling as “Young” as he used to be, and wants to shorten his rap moniker and be referred to simply as “Jeezy.”

The first time the change appeared was in the credits to Rihanna’s single “Hard”, but it only became official on his single “Lose My Mind,” off his upcoming album, Thug Motivation 103.

At press time, the change was reflected on Jeezy’s official DefJam.com website, which shows a new Young-less Jeezy logo and story to make it official.

Jeezy’s last studio album was 2008’s The Recession. He’s hard at work on Thug Motivation 103, but at press time, there was no official release date.

However, the rapper said recently that he’s shooting for June. “I wanna own the summer. If you coming out [with an album] in June, you might wanna think about that,” he said.
