Trap rapper Jeezy plans to hang up his microphone after the release of his upcoming ninth and final album. The 40-year-old father-of-3 announced his retirement onTwitter.com on Thursday.
The "Put On" rapper who completes his Cold Summer Tour in Oklahoma on Friday night, announced his last album will be part of the Thug Motivation series, which began with 2005's Let's Get It: Thug Motivation 101.
"Now class is coming to a end," he tweeted. "It's time for Graduation! My Last Album & Final Class: TM104 -#TrustYaProcess".
To finance his retirement, the South Carolina native, whose real name is Jay Jenkins, sold his shares in top alcohol brand Tequila Avion to bosses at global drinks firm Pernod Ricard in January. He will remain involved in the brand's marketing and growth until at least 2020.
Rap mogul JAY-Z has announced his "retirement" several times, only to return like he never left.
But Jeezy has a minor child to raise and he is engaged to be married to his longtime love, Mahi, the mother of his youngest daughter. Life is good.
