Young Jeezy Announces CTE/Atlantic Records Imprint, Explains Freddie Gibbs' Exit

RickyRichRickyRich almighty ricky richEastend Scarbo Posts: 12,328 ✭✭✭✭✭
ome light has been shed on Freddie Gibbs' untimely departure from CTE, as Young Jeezy announces a new CTE/Atlantic Records imprint.

Young Jeezy has been in the news lately for making moves up the hip hop corporate ladder, and being implicated in a few beefs. Earlier today it was confirmed that Freddie Gibbs had parted ways with CTE after signing with Snowman’s label. Turns out that Jeezy, who is the Sr. Vice President of A&R at Atlantic Records, has moved his CTE label over to Atlantic.

In a press release, the new venture is described as dedicated to finding and launching careers of new talent worldwide. Seems Jeezy and Gibbs parted ways amicably and it was a decision based on the direction of the new imprint, as Jeezy says, “Freddie is a talented artist and I decided that it's time to press reset on my career and business ventures. I have no doubt that Freddie will go on to be everything I believe he can be, and I wish him the best in his career.”

Apparently the CTE honcho was looking to start over, and on this new project wanted to go a brand new direction, as he says “This is a fresh start for the CTE brand as we re-launch it. This is why I chose to wipe the slate clean and create an outlet to support and nurture new artists to the best of my ability."

This comes at the same time that Jeezy’s long time rival, Rick Ross, announces that MMG will be moving over to Atlantic Records as well. Could this be the end of their beef, or only cause more friction in the future?

    haha He cool man, I wasn't in the streets but

    He was always lil, like 5'3. But a big mouth, couple times nigga had to square up. At the football game he took that stick the drum major had and cracked a nigga over the head w it and broke the stick

    Nigga was cold on the bball court though, I didn't get that starting spot until he stopped coming to school. School let out at 3 we had to stay till the games at 6 so he used to just rap about whatever people talkin about passng time.

    Then he started hanging w C-Loc and them, rappin/hustling whatever, rarely came to school anymore. When he did he would just be Polo down.... come, counting stacks $ at recess, everybody lookin.

    OH and biology class blunt fell out his ear and the teacher tried to grab it. He twist that lady arm grabbed the blunt off the floor n left. lol
    Far from a groupie...but a Boosie story

    Nga was in the club and I was out and about in another state..I was doing business there and decide to step out...and heard dude was going to be at the club on the radio...Now I don't know dude like that..but again my patnas know dude...I goes to the club..dude has his own section in the club..him and his crew and a few women...I walk up to the area and he comes over and he like you be in B.R. and you be wit such and such and I was like yea..he like mayne what you doing out here..I told him.. he was like..mayne you family come on in V.I.P. and get what you want..you want this..you want that..i was like nah..nga handed me a bottle and told me just to take it...again I don't know dude like that to be gettin a bottle..but the love he showed..I see why ngas love this nga down here so much...so I was leaving the club after he performed..nga was like you good you need bread..you need money on a room..and I was like shocked the nga even reached out like that..and I was like nah.. Nga didn't care who you were..if he fucks wit you..he fucks wit you..that's why alot cats fuck wit the lil nga...

    Man im starting to think they beef is fake. Im usually good with seeing thru fake industry shit but this one caught me. I remember there was something in the rumors section about Def jam tryna cook up a fake Jeezy vsRoss situation to generate sales. Now with all they problems MMG goes over to Atlantic w/ Jeezy VP? Man ALL this shit is manufactured

    U do know that Jeezy had CTE long before he signed to either Bad Boy or Def Jam right? Tha rest of ur post I can understand. Considering Jeezy is street music, he'd be far better off takin his label the Indie route (or at least to Asylum).
