On the eve of releasing his latest single, Young Jeezy released an open-letter to his fans about social injustice, poverty, and the plight of being a Black man in America. The thought provoking letter is accompanied by Jeezy’s TM88 and Southside-produced song titled “God.”
As you know, 2015 marked the 10th anniversary of Jeezy’s Thug Motivation 101, so it’s definitely been a benchmark year for him.
In the letter, Jeezy (who signed the letter ‘Pastor Young’) preaches about several issues, including systemic racism, stating:
I would like to take this time to ADDRESS the Street Disciples and Congregation to express my concerns and frustrations on what’s going on in our communities all over the world today.
There’s a war going on, but you have to ask yourself, who is the enemy? We die to claim our streets and hoods when we don’t own as much as a mail box. That tells me one thing—If we all were on the same page and had the same cause, there is nothing in the world we can’t change or make happen.

Real music is back!! Monica aka Monica Brown played host to a private listening session for her upcoming CODE RED project and I had the pleasure of attending last night (August 27, 2015).
CODE RED, Mo’s eighth studio album, is scheduled for release September 18, 2015 but the songstress gave a few of Atlanta’s top tastemakers, media, and DJ’s a sneak peek of her project during the preview, held at Atlanta’s Patchwerk Recording Studio.
Monica says she named the album ‘CODE RED’ because R&B music today needs to be revitalized or ‘brought back to life. She explains her album title as follows:
When my first record dropped, I was only 13 years old. So now at 34, I look back at it and I can see how important it was for our generation.
So trying to reconnect to an entirely different generation of people, but with the same love and the same music. I look at it as a ‘re-introduction’.
Attendees included Mo’s husband, Shannon Brown, Polow Da Don, Young Jeezy, Kap-G and many more.
