Young Jeezy Heralds Recession With New Album

(swiped from Pitchfork Media)

On the opening track from his last album, The Inspiration, Young Jeezy commanded us, in so many words, to get money. Thing is, times have changed since then. The economy, maaaan. It's hard to find work now. The other thing is, Jeezy knows this, and he has addressed our concerns with the title of The Inspiration's follow-up, The Recession.

The Recession comes out via CTE/Def Jam on September 2. Its first single, "Put On [ft. Kanye West]", has already hit radio and Forkcast, and the album's cover is available below for your viewing pleasure.

To promote The Recession, Jeezy is unveiling new content weekly on a blog and social networking site called We'd compliment the pun on USA Today, except it's probably "just a coincidence."

Young Jeezy will hit the road on a U.S. tour closer to the release of The Recession. The tour starts in Houston on August 10.
