Young Jeezy’s Album Cover Controversy

Rapper Young Jeezy just declared that he will release his new album “Thug Motivation 103” on June 22, 2010, reports. He’s going up against releases from Eminem, Diddy-Dirty Money and The-Dream. However, the southern rapper’s mixtape titled “Trap or Die 2” released Friday, April 30th.

Some criticized Jeezy’s pose on his new mixtape cover, claiming that he was trying to come across too much like Malcom X which many people saw as disrespectful due to a direct conflict with the drug-related content on the album.  Check out the album art and tracklist for the mixtape below:

3. Stop Playin Wit Me
4. Insane
5. Problem

(there’s also an untitled bonus track at the end of the album)

DJ Drama was supposed to host the mixtape’s sequel since he hosted the original but scheduling conflicts came up and Don Cannon took the helm, despite being involved in Jeezy’s upcoming album.
