Jeezy follows in the footsteps of Jermaine Dupri, Jim Jones, Ne-Yo and of course, Jay-Z, in taking on the label gig. At Atlantic, he'll work to develop talent, sign artists and oversee the label's current roster, which includes T.I., Wiz Khalifa, Diggy Simmons and Lupe Fiasco.

Jeezy is currently signed to Def Jam, with whom he has released four LPs. He also co-owns Def Jam imprint Corporate Thugz Entertainment (CTE), which features rappers Freddie Gibbs, Slick Pulla, Boo Rossini and his group USDA.
