Jeezy Named SVP of A&R At Atlantic

[tweet https://twitter.com/DJFolk/status/233380763960221696]

Jeezy is taking his executive seat behind the desk at Atlantic Records. During yesterday’s broadcast on Atlanta’s V103, DJ Greg Street announced Jeezy was pointed the new Senior Vice President of A&R.

Although Da Snowman is now employed at Atlantic, he will continue to bring his hits to Def Jam as a solo artist. It’s the Universal Warner world. Congrats!

  • SpaceGhostBlacc

    What’s an a&r though?

  • The Truth

    Maybe Jeezy can force Wiz to change that bullshit looking ass album cover now!!!

  • http://www.ctrlaltmasturbate.com LukeCage

    It’s “APpointed” not “pointed”

  • CROMER BEATS

    @SpaceGhostBlacc AN A&R is the dude at a label that finds the best new beat and talents for the label or particular artist (Talent scout). I must say this is a lane many older artists need to consider. Sometimes it better for them to stop trying to be young and pretend to be 18yr old rappers and begin molding the next generation. Not the Jeezy is “That old”, but good move none the less.

    You stupid fools!!! A&R’s deal with recruiting talent and finding new artists, they got no say on budgets and shit……. Hov at Def Jam was a power mover VP of A&R aint shit for an artist of Jeezy’s status let’s all calm the fuck down!!!! By the way, Ross lost!

  • Aggie Pride

    Well this explains why jeezy been quiet this summer. A&R does overseeing over artists and find new talent. He will also have some promotional/marketing control.

  • Your Friendly Neighborhood Dopeman

    It’s the world! C.O. Ricky lost. Again. I’d hate to be an A&R though, you have to go through so much wack talent to find a few good artist.

  • The Truth

    @ Ivy blue Hov

    Jeezy has the same exact title that Sha Money XL has at Def Jam, and Sha is responsible for signing Big Krit, seems you are the stupid one bruh!!! When you can sign artists to a major label such it is a power move!!!

  • Aggie Pride

    Lol Jeezy is officially a Corporate Thug bringing you the Entertainment. CTE “IT’s THE WORLD”

  • ATOWN

    A&R of what LOL???? Im still waitin on Jeezy to bring out one of his artist… Notice none of his artist has ever made an album or does he even have artists. Slick Puller??? Boo Rossini??? Freddie Gibbs??? Wake me up when he does… Real Bosses like the boy Rozay put others on! Niggaz like Jeezy be too afraid that the cats if he put them on will take his lil shine that he has left..

  • gammaboi

    Congrats to the man, but Gibbs is only talented signing he’s made.
    Plus Young Lody is a Lex Luger clone, so I don’t know what these dudes over at Atlantic were thinking.

    @the truth I can guarantee you that sha money didn’t have the final word in whether krit got a deal or not, hov did when he was at def jam. Trust me, i ride for jeezy but lets not make it seem bigger than it is. A lot of A&R’s shopped jay to major label but he never got a deal, if it was up to the a&r’s hove would have had a deal same with yeezy.

  • Donn

    Why u closet fans keep bringing up Ross. U want to divide hiphop. Ever think ppl like both Ross and Jeezy. Stop this bullshit and uplift both of em. They both represent the culture and push it forward. Shouts to Jeezy and Ross! Both bosses

  • tbd1983

    Jeezy did street promo and marketing before he rapped, so this is a good look …

  • **MyNaMek’Ree**

    gOoD tHiNg Guwop is Not on atLaNtic No MoRe tHe VeRDict wiLL Neva dRop #Brrr

  • The Truth

    @Ivy blue Hov

    Actually L.A Reid had the final say, Jay-z had more say so than Jeezy will have because he was the President of the whole label which included other acts besides hip hop, I give Jay-z props for signing Rhianna Rick Ross Ne Yo among others but don’t say this move is minor though that Jeezy has done!!! But I will say though that I haven’t seen any evidence that Jeezy can’t develop any artists

  • DonStatus

    Yo @CROMER BEATS…I can’t for the life of me understand why your not signed to a label yet…those beats are nice as fuk dude. I don’t say that about many producers these days. Somethin about your beats are diff dude. Good shit.

    …In other news JEEZY WINS AGAIN…Ross crying in a bowl of ice cream right now. HAHA

  • H2FD

    Nobody loss at the end of the day, both Ross and Jezzy are in powerful positions and collect check(s) That’s a win if you ask anybody that see it from a logical stand point.

  • Santa

    @CROMER BEATS

    I was pissed off at you before but I respect you using the signature instead. A lot less intrusive. Keep on grinding homie

  • TRUTH

    Jeezy’s content in his music sounds like he’s continually glad to be where he’s at. Can he really be expected to be a professional high profile employee, or will he be a rapper in a suit?

  • Zoe

    Y’all niggas NEVER give Jeezy props but worship Officer Ricky…

  • Keith

    Congrats to Young Jeezy. Yeeeeah (said in raspy Jeezy voice).

  • Scrilla

    Zoe
    Right, he sells 233k first week “Def Jam bought all those” or goes gold “those are shipped copies” (even thought he sold 500k)

  • HK

    Congrats! Cheers!

  • HK

  • Omega Supreme

    @Scrilla so if Def Jam bought Jeezy 233k Def Jam damn sure bought Ross 218k
