In 2009, Young Jeezy announced he would release a new album before the end of the year. During the summer of 2009, it was revealed that the album would be called Thug Motivation 103. Despite the frequent news releases, no music was leaked from the album.
Young Jeezy did not release any new material in 2009. But, when he was featured on Rihanna's "Hard," many felt as if an album was on the way. Before the start of summer, "Lose My Mind," featuring Plies, was released. While a semi-hit was launched, no new album came.
Yesterday, his "Shake Life" single was released and Young Jeezy is currently promoting the song. When asked about the delay of his album, Young Jeezy said he went to Miami to begin recording new material. But, when he came down to Miami, he was distracted by the celebritiy scene. Young Jeezy said he also needed a break between his projects.
Despite the success of last year's "Lose My Mind" and the heavy radio play of "Ballin'," Young Jeezy confirmed "Shake Life" will be the first single off Thug Motivation 103.
