By Jeff Benjamin, Hilary Hughes, Thomas Nassiff, Maria Sherman, Mark Sundstrom and Samantha Vincenty
Who: Young Jeezy, head of Southern hip hop group United Streets Dopeboyz of America (USDA)
What: The rapper’s seventh studio album, Seen It All: The Autobiography
When: September 2
Why We're Excited: Jeezy has been teasing us with a series of mix tapes as of late (his twelfth hit last year!) and it’s time for something more. In September he revealed a new album was underway and that it would feature a series of A-list names like Ludacris, Future and Usher. Seen It All: The Autobiography arrives next month and is something of a return to the spotlight for Young Jeezy, who told Complex, “A lot of y’all know when I came in the game, I pretty much came in the game with my hands behind my back. 'Cause a lot of the sh-t I’d like to talk about or could’ve talked about probably would have got me in a lot of trouble. This is probably my first album where I can explain and let n-ggas know where I stand. In layman’s terms, the statute of limitations is over with." Sounds promising! — M. Sherman
