Tonight no-longer-Young Jeezy shared “Foul Play,” a new song off his It’s Tha World Vol. 2 tape, which is slated for release November 27. The Drumma Boy beat is grinding and Jeezy sounding agitated. What’s got him so bothered? Label woes, at least in part.
Jeezy announced a follow-up to 2011′s TM:103 Hustlerz Ambition earlier this fall, but he’s still waiting on a release date. So after dropping the song, Jeezy returned to twitter to broadcast his discontent with Def Jam, the label that distributes his CTE World imprint, to his more than 650,000 followers. “I been perfecting this album 2 years for #myfans,” he wrote, before warning label higher-ups like LA Reid, Universal Music Group CEO Lucian Grainge and Island Def Jam CEO Barry Weiss that he will leak the album himself if they “keep playing games.” He wrapped the missive with a “beeleedat” and singing it with an all-caps #SNOWMAN hashtag.
