Young Jeezy adopts a more mature moniker
Jeezy is all grown up, so he's officially dropping the "Young" before his name.
Vibe noted that he isn't the first rapper to get rid of the "Lil" or "Young" before his name in an attempt to alter his image. According to The Source, he had dropped the "Young" on certain tracks and artwork over the past year, but hadn't formally announced the decision until an interview with MTV's Rap Fix Live.
"It sounded good because when I came in the game, that's who I was and that was my state of mind," he explained, as quoted by Vibe. "But I'm a grown man now."
Do you think the change will gain Jeezy more respect?
