Young Jeezy Preps USDA-Approved Album

Posted By on March 1, 2007

Young Jeezy, Atlanta's Slick Pulla and Panama City's Blood Raw have formed a new group, USDA — United Streets D-Boys of America — and will be releasing their debut album this spring. The as-yet-untitled effort will be released through Jeezy's own Corporate Thugz Entertainment label.

The album's first single, "Check," is being serviced to radio this week.

Immediately after the album's release, Jeezy will headline the Street Dream tour, a 7-week stint which begins Saturday (March 3) at the Cricket Arena in Charlotte and wraps up on April 29 in Los Angeles. Jeezy will be joined by Dipset's Jim Jones, Terror Squad's Fat Joe, Rich Boy and Cash Money's Baby and Lil' Wayne. The concert series also comes on the heels of Jeezy's sophomore effort, "The Inspiration," released in December.

"The Inspiration" (Corporate Thugz/Def Jam) has moved 885,000 copies in the United States, according to Nielsen SoundScan, and bowed at No. 1 on The Billboard 200.
