Jeezy will be done with the rap game after he releases his final album titled, Thug Motivation 104. Deets inside…

They say all good things must come to an end.

Rapper Young Jeezy has announced his rap retirement following the release of his last and final album, Thug Motivation 104: Trust the Process.

The Atlanta rapper made the announcement that his ninth album would be his last in a tweet on Twitter. He wrote: "As the Cold Summer tour comes to a end.. It was inspiring seeing my day one fans since my first album & class TM 101 come out every night. Now class is coming to a end. It's time for Graduation! My Last Album & Final Class: TM104 -#TrustYaProcess”

 

 

Jeezy burst onto the rap scene with his debut album Let's Get It: Thug Motivation 101 in 2005. Since then, he has dropped bangers like "Go Crazy,” "Soul Survivor," “And Then What,” and “Lose My Mind” to name a few. The Atlanta based rapper dropped his 8th studio album, Pressure, in December 2017.

In the beginning, Jeezy wasn’t even supposed to be a rapper. He wanted to be the CEO of his own record label.

“That was my plan — to be this big CEO and run this big record label and make all this big money,” he told Fortune magazine.

Once he realized his artists weren’t putting in work like they were supposed to, he decided to take matters into his own hands and become an artist himself.

“I just decided to do it myself,” he said. “Ain’t nobody gonna go as hard as you gonna go…I have a way with words and I know how to hustle.”

The 39-year-old has plenty of business ventures outside of rap, which include an online merchandise shop and his marketing shop called 99 Agency that will work with entertainers, athletes, and brands, plus real estate investments in Atlanta. He also reportedly sold the remaining stake in his tequila brand Tequila Avion and will remain financially incentivized until 2020.

So yeah, he’s still mad busy.
