(AllHipHop News) reports Young Jeezy has been named Senior Vice President of A&R at Atlantic Records according to Atlanta’s Greg Street, who announced the news last night on his V103 radio show.
The news was then tweeted out by DJ Folk, one of the masterminds behind Jeezy’s CTE movement, and later confirmed by Complex. He wrote, “Young Jeezy is now the Senior VP of A&R over at Atlantic Records. Woah.”
Although no details have been revealed regarding Young Jeezy’s full role in the position, it is interesting to note that he is still signed as a solo artist, with Def Jam Recordings.
Young Jeezy has been with Def Jam since his first album, Let’s Get It: Thug Motivation 101, was released in 2005, up to his fourth studio album, TM103, which dropped last December.
His most recent feature appears on the new single, “Hold On (Shut Up),” from Machine Gun Kelly’s Bad Boy debut, Lace Up.

It’s been a tragic weekend for Usher and his ex Tameka Foster. Now the singer’s estranged wife is speaking out about her 11-year-old son Kyle Glover’s grave condition after being hit by a speeding jet ski on Saturday.
“He’s bad,” Foster tells RadarOnline.com. “Kyle, You are strong.. You’ll be saved I know it,” the mother of five wrote on her Facebook page. “I love you my baby. I need all #Prayers for my son! thanks you everybody!”
TMZ reported on Sunday that Kyle was pronounced brain dead by doctors at the Atlanta hospital he was airlifted to immediately following the accident on Georgia’s Lake Lanier. The as-yet-unnamed 38-year-old man operating the jet ski appears to be cooperating with local authorities, who are investigating the incident.
Despite their ongoing divorce and custody battle over their sons Usher V and Naviyd, Usher has been by Tameka’s side during the ordeal, even chartering her a jet so she could rush to Kyle’s bedside. Usher developed a tight relationship with his three stepchildren during his relationship with Foster and remains close with them today.
While there seems to be no chance Kyle Glover will make a recovery, it is not known what decision Foster and her family will make in regards to keeping him on life support.
Our thoughts and prayers are with the family.
