Young Jeezy recently chopped it up 95.5 WPGC’s Big Tigger while promoting his upcoming fourth LP Thug Motivation 103: Hustlerz Ambition. During the interview, Jizzle revealed that after he drops TM 103 this December 20, he will not release anymore installments in the Thug Motivation series. He explained that after three albums spanning over a six year period, he’s looking to move on to bigger and better things with his music.
“I think this is the last one [of the Thug Motivation series],” he explained. “That’s why I put it together the way I did, you know. It’s on to the next chapter, the next phase. We did TM 101, which was [the first] Thug Motivation, [sold] 2 milli, changed the game a lil’ bit. I like to call it a classic. Just a lil’ bit though…[then] we did The Inspiration. I didn’t call it [TM] 102, but I think everybody in the streets called it 102 so I had to kind of ride with that. And then of course The Recession, shout out to Barack Obama, so now we’re back to motivating the thugs…[for] 2012, I just wanted to be there for my people.”
Jeezy also spoke about the Chris Robinson-directed documentary A Hustlerz Ambition, which recently premiered in his hometown Atlanta. The Snowman explained that he wanted to give fans an in-depth look into his early life and career, as well show aspiring musicians the kind of drive it takes to achieve stardom.
“[With my documentary], I kind of wanted to take people in my world. I’ve been pretty much a private person, but I wanted people to kinda see some of the things I went through, my adversity, my trials, my hurdles,” he explained. “The documentary’s crazy, Samuel L. Jackson narrated it, so if there’s anything you wanted to know about me, it’s pretty much [spans] from the day I was born until now.”
