Announcements: Young Jeezy Grows Up, Drops the "Young"

Shoulda been called "Lose My Innocence"
​Kudos to the esteemed Rap-Up for pointing out that the 32-year-old Jay Jenkins, formerly known as the rapper Young Jeezy, is now credited as just plain Jeezy on the cover for new single "Lose My Mind" featuring Florida's own Plies. The song is from Jeezy's (still getting used to saying it) forthcoming Thug Motivation 103. Enjoy it while you still can Kid Cudi -- your days as a child are numbered.
