“Thug Motivation 103: Hustlerz Ambition” goes Gold

Today has been a great day for Young Jeezy, whose “OJ” video was finally released, along with the official “Strange Clouds (remix)” video, which features Jeezy. The final piece to a great day for Young Jeezy came with news of Thug Motivation 103: Hustlerz Ambition being certified gold by the RIAA. Young Jeezy has released several hit singles from the album.

There was a time when it seemed as if TM103 would not be released, at all. Initially, the album was given a 2009 release date. However, the album was soon delayed until 2010, which saw Young Jeezy release two singles. Despite releasing two singles, the album was still delayed, until given a December 2011 release date. A misprint from Target.com served as a form of humor for hip hop, saying the album would come on Christmas 2025.

When it seemed as if the album had been all but forgotten, Young Jeezy finally released his single, “F.A.M.E.,” with T.I., which generated buzz for the album. As promised, TM103 was released in December 2011, becoming a critical and commercial success. Young Jeezy was recently met with more commercial success, as previously stated, he learned his album has sold over 500,000 copies, certifying it as gold.
