Young Jeezy not only celebrated the past, but looked toward the future during an intimate show in New York City. After commemorating the six-year anniversary of his debut Let’s Get It: Thug Motivation 101, he shared the long-awaited release date for his next album Thug Motivation 103.
Taking the stage at Highline Ballroom, Jeezy revealed that his oft-delayed fourth LP will drop this fall. “My ni**a Kinky B. just told me that TM103 will be in stores September 20. Goodnight, I love ya’ll!” he told the crowd at the end of his 75-minute set, which featured appearances from Jay-Z, Kanye West, Fabolous, The Lox, and Bun B.
So far the album has produced the singles “Ballin’” with Lil Wayne and the celebratory “Shake Life” which debuted last week.
Travis Barker plays drums on the album intro. “I did an intro with Drumma Boy,” the Blink-182 member previously reported. “It was amazing. It was like this epic, Braveheart-sounding intro.”
Meanwhile, producer Drumma Boy promised TM103 would be worth the wait. “If I had to say one word, it would be classic,” he shared. “It’s gonna be a lot of love put into this record. It’s gonna be a lot of stories, drama, effects.”
