Young Jeezy Signs Doughboyz Cashout To CTE

Young Jeezy adds a Detroit, Michigan quartet to his roster, which is now under the Atlantic Records umbrella.

While Freddie Gibbs and Blood Raw are no longer on the label, CTE World (a/k/a Corporate Thugz Entertainment) is further growing its roster. Young Jeezy's imprint announced this week that Doughboyz Cashout are the latest act to join the Atlanta, Georgia-based label. CTE is now under Atlantic Records, following Jeezy's Sr. VP A&R appointment, after a five-plus-year tenure under Def Jam Records.

"I saw Detroit, I saw some kids that did all the work. They did all the work and I just wanted to show the world what they were working on," Young Jeezy told WJLB 97.9 by phone, as reported by MTV Rap Fix. "Detroit bred some great hustlers, some great talent from Eminem to Big Sean, but now it's time for the ghetto superstars."

The Michigan quartet includes HBK, Payroll, Doughboy Quis and Doughboy Dre.

CTE's last release was Young Jeezy's own TM103 (Thug Motivation 103), in December of 2011.

Feel Free 2 Check Them Out On Youtube... Da Mob Is My Personal Favorite Music Video.. But Anyway I Just Wanted 2 Say This.. Im Happy That The Group Got A Deal.. But? Im Not Happy 2 The Fact Who They Signed With.. No Disrespect 2 Jeezy.. Luv His Music But Business Wise? No No No Hell No. Real Talk DBC Was Doing Damn Good As An Independent Group. Now Whut We Don't Need Is 4 Jeezy 2 Be Fuckin These Boyz Over On Sum Bullshit. Having Atlanta & Detroit Fueding And Makin Diss Tracks @ Each Other. His Lack Business Speaks 4 It's Self.. All The Artist He Had On The CTE Lable Are Gone.. And When T.I. Got 2 Them 1st.. T.I. Just Wanted HBK & Payroll So That Deal Was Out. I Really Feel That If CTE & Atlantic Records Change Or Mess Them Over? They Will Lose Their Street Cred In Detroit And People Will Be Screamin TEAM EASTSIDE... Doughboyz Cashout Need 2 Get Out Of That Contract Now And Stick 2 Being An Independent Group til Sumthin Better Cums Knockin....

    CTE/DEF JAM DID RELEASE BLOOD RAW'S ALBUM WITH THE SINGLE "LOUIS BAG"

    CTE = Label Graveyard. No artist signed to CTE has ever released a solo album, NONE. No Freddie Gibbs, Slick Pulla, Tone Trump, Roccett, J.W, Blood Raw, Boo Rossini, and no 211, in the 9 plus years since the label was founded. This nigga refuses to sign anyone who will outshine him, signs mediocre artists at best, and then refuses to release their albums. I'm a Jeezy fan, but the nigga appears to be mad selfish...

      Agreed. Freddie Gibbs was the last nail in the coffin, if he couldn't make Jeezy to drop his album then nobody will. Too bad, because otherwise it seemed like a perfect home for Gangsta Gibbs. Remember when Jeezy was talking about in that documentary how CTE is a movement and they wanted more than just record deal, LOL.

    • Thomas Boiland

      Co-Sign, what about the current roster as well Tone Trump, Wink Loc, JW & Slick Pulla included ....
