Young Jeezy is the latest artist to sign with Roc Nation.  The rapper tweeted a photo of himself and Jay as proof of the partnership with the following caption- “CTE x Rocnation x #itsthaworld “Its OFFICIAL”

Roc Nation resonated the love on social media with the words- “Welcome Jeezy to Roc Nation. CTE x Roc Nation x It’s Tha World.”

Prior to this, Jeezy was managed by KWL Enterprises, run by former Def Jam and Warner Music Group honcho Kevin Liles.  Recently Jeezy expressed his displeasure with them by going on a twitter tirade which suggested the label was deliberately not releasing his music by not making him a priority. Jeezy tweeted-  “N—-s @ @DefJamRecords keep playing games if you want!” He also threatened to leak his own music.

Meanwhile the snowman is expected to release a solo album soon and on a release date, I’ll keep you posted.  By the way, Jeezy’s deal is the latest in Roc Nation’s continued expansion of its roster of talent. Just yesterday, they signed another big name.  Get the scoop below with Tha Wire.

In other news Chris Brown can’t seem to catch a break. Yesterday the singer was sentenced to 90 days in rehab by a judge in L.A.

E! News reports that L.A. Superior Court Judge James Brandlin agreed with the probation department and sentenced Chris to spend another three months in a residential treatment facility.  While of course Breezy will have to submit to drug testing and take medication as prescribed by a doctor.  On top of that Chris will also have to complete another 24 hours of community service a week during this rehab stint.

As previously reported the 23-year old entertainer checked himself into rehab on October 29th shortly after his arrest for assault against a man at a DC hotel.  His stay was short lived as he reportedly was kicked out of the Malibu facility after he allegedly threw a rock through his mother’s car window.

It’s no secret that Chris Brown has been dealing with a lot of legal issues over the last several months. However, as it turns out the R&B superstar has also been dealing with clinical mental and emotional issues.  Radar Online got access to documents which indicate that Brown suffers from Attention Deficit Disorder and depression and is being treated for those conditions while in rehab.

The rehab center released a statement in regard to Chris's stay saying simply,

"Our hope is that Mr Brown will re-engage in treatment and get the help he requires for his dual diagnosis issues and become a positive role model in society that we absolutely believe he has the ability to become."
