Looks like Rick Ross isn’t the only one moving his stable to Atlantic Records. It was release earlier of news that Atlanta rapper Young Jeezy will be housing his CTE World inside the Atlantic office. Jeezy was recently elected Senior Vice President of A&R at Atlantic Records; therefore, some can say the inking of his label was pretty much inevitable. Jeezy may have an bone to pick with Rick Ross but has a lot of close collaborators over at Atlantic with his fellow ATLiens T.I. and B.O.B stationed there already and buddying crooner Trey Songz also under the Atlantic stamp. As Senior VP, it will be Jeezy’s responsibility to discover, groom, and launch new talent. Signing CTE, Jeezy looks to find fresh new start for his label which he and Atlantic Chairman Craig Kallman will direct and operate with Jeezy at the head.
Jeezy calls this venture a reset for him, “This is a fresh start for the CTE brand as we re-launch it,” said the Snowman. “This is why I chose to wipe the slate clean and create an outlet to support and nurture new artists to the best of my ability.”
Unlike Ross’s MMG, Jeezy will not be bringing over any old acts from his CTE imprint, former CTE artist Freddie Gibbs recently jumped ship from Jeezy’s camp. Jeezy had no hard feelings for Gibbs decision depart, even tells the press he feel Gangsta Gibbs will be a big impact on music; “Freddie is a talented artist and I decided that it’s time to press reset on my career and business ventures,” said Jeezy in a statement. “I have no doubt that Freddie will go on to be everything I believe he can be, and I wish him the best in his career.”
Young Jeezy has been busy setting up the release of his next studio project but before that fans will get ahold of new material from the trapper when he release his new mixtape It’s the World
