Young Jeezy Now Just "Jeezy," Still Awful

Posted By on Fri, Mar 19, 2010 at 3:14 PM

Young Jeezy is now just Jeezy
To whomever is still paying attention to him: Young Jeezy (real name Jay Jenkins) wants hereafter to be referred to as simply Jeezy. As HipHopWired reports, the name adjustment has been in the offing for a few months now, but wasn't made official until now. Other MCs who've gone through this hip-hop rite of passage include the likes of Lil Bow Wow and Sean "Puff 'P. Diddy' Daddy" Combs.

Young Jeezy, for those of you who don't know (consider yourselves lucky), has made a name for himself as a slow, seething, growling MC whose half-assed verses have become ubiquitous for constantly being featured alongside just about every smooth rapper or singer with a silky voice: Usher, Rihanna, Jay-Z, Akon, Kanye West, T.I., Christina Milian and more. He's also released full albums, which must be unlistenable. On the plus side, now making fun of him requires one less syllable—next year he'll just start going by "Jee."
