The rapper formerly known as Young Jeezy is not happy with his record label. Jeezy went in on Twitter to blast Def Jam Records for not supporting his forthcoming studio album. “I been perfecting this album 2 years for #myfans” the Snowman tweeted yesterday along with “N—-s @DefJamRecords keep playing games if you want!”
What will the rapper do if Def Jam doesn’t get behind his follow-up to TM 103? Jizzle may just leak it himself to fans as an early X-mas gift. “If Def Jam don’t get this right y’all got an early xmas gift #myfans”

Interestingly, the rapper ReTweeted Epic Records head LA Reid after his rant, which makes us wonder if he has plans on jumping ship to another label if Def Jam Records doesn’t work out.
Jeezy’s last release dropped in 2011 with singles like “Leave You Alone” featuring Ne-Yo. Only time will tell if Jeezy Claus makes good on his holiday gift.
“I’m grown now; I did enough of that,” Jeezy told MTV News of dropping the “Young” from his name. “It sounds good because when I came in the game that’s who I was and that was my state of mind, but I’m a grown man. Those zeros get to adding up, you gotta drop the ’young.’ “
