Multi-platinum, Grammy®-nominated rap superstar and CTE/Def Jam Recordings artist Jeezy returns to the spotlight starting June 30th with a brand new single, "Seen It All" featuring Jay Z. It's the title track of his fifth studio LP, SEEN IT ALL, arriving in stores on September 2nd. iTunes pre-orders for the new album will begin on July 29th, with two exclusive tracks off the record included as instant grat bonus for consumers.
Adding to the excitement, Jeezy will co-headline the "Under the Influence of Music" Tour of North America with Wiz Khalifa, opening July 24th at Montage Mountain in Scranton, hitting 22 cities across the U.S. and Canada through August 24th at Verizon Wireless Amphi¬theater in Irvine, California. Support acts for the tour include Tyga, Ty Dollar Sign, and Rich Homie Quan, with others to be added in the weeks ahead. (Please see tour dates below.)
SEEN IT ALL is Jeezy's first new album in more than two and a half years, the long-awaited follow-up to his RIAA gold TM:103 'Hustlerz Ambition' (released December 2011), which entered the charts at #1 on iTunes and #3 Soundscan. Rolling Stone praised the LP's "luxuriously unhurried bravado"; and the Washington Post raved, "Every chorus sounds like a triumph and almost makes you want to chew on fiberglass and try to shout along."
TM:103's first single, "I Do" featuring JAY Z and André 3000 of OutKast, blasted off to hit Top 5 on the Billboard R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart, and Top 10 on the Rap Songs chart. The track went on to earn a Grammy Award® nomination for Best Rap Song at the 55th annual Grammy Awards® ceremony in February 2013.
The two-disc CD+DVD deluxe edition of TM:103 contained the uncut version of the biographical film, Hustlerz Ambition, narrated bySamuel L. Jackson, a raw chronicle of Jeezy's rise from the mean streets of Atlanta to inter¬national stardom. The most revealing and honest and graphic portrayal of Jeezy to date, the documentary was directed by Chris Robinson, and produced by Cossette Productions (known for their work on the Grammy Awards® telecasts).
TM:103 was the follow-up to Jeezy's third Def Jam/CTE studio album, The Recession (September 2008, certified RIAA gold), his second consecutive #1 Sound¬scan debut (after 2006's RIAA platinum The Inspiration). The Recession went straight to #1 at iTunes, and spun off a string of hit singles starting with the RIAA platinum, Grammy®-nominated "Put On" featuring Kanye West, #1 Rap and #1 R&B, and a #12 pop hit as well.
