In other news, fans should note that Young Jeezy is changing his name. The rapper is shedding “Young” to reflect the he’s grown man status. I would say at 35, thats pretty evident. The Atlanta-bred rapper recently sat down with MTV and explained, “Young Jeezy” made sense when I was in a youthful mind state but not so much anymore. It sound good because when I came in the game, that’s who I was and that was my state of mind,” he states. “But I’m a grown man now.”
He also reflected on a big moment in his career: when President Obama gave him a shout out. During his speech at the White House Correspondents’ Dinner in April 2012, the president joked about following his impromptu Al Green cover during another speech with a take on Jeezy’s music. “To me it felt like a moment in time for myself that I feel like everything I was doing wasn’t getting overlooked,” ‘The Recession’ creator says. “I do a lot of stuff for my community, charity… but the way that I came into the game kinda put me in that black cloud. Just to see he appreciates what I do for the culture, for my people, it was big.”
By the way, Jeezy isn’t the only rapper changing his name. In case you didn’t know Jay Z dropped the hyphen from his stage name earlier this summer. Speaking of JayZ he just released the North American dates for his Magna Carta World Tour.
