Months after The Recession, Young Jeezy began recording another album for a 2009 release date. When 2009 arrived, he revealed the album would follow the Thug Motivation series of albums. Thug Motivation 103 was scheduled for a summer 2009 release.
The year of 2009 came and went without a Young Jeezy release. Instead of an album, or even a single, the only thing fans heard from Jeezy was a guest feature on Rihanna's hit single, "Hard." In the summer of 2010, Young Jeezy did release his "Lose My Mind" single.
Despite no album coming, the Plies-assisted single became a minor hit. Even as he released more singles, no solid release date for the album was scheduled. Def Jam released albums from several other artists, while they decided to have Young Jeezy re-work his album. Ever since the late winter of 2010, Young Jeezy has been re-working his new album.
Def Jam approved the revised Thug Motivation 103 and Young Jeezy was given a late July release date. It is now up to the label to begin promoting the release. Young Jeezy promised fans he would definitely make up for lost time with his new album and singles, this summer.
