Last night (Aug. 8) the 'net went wild with reports that Young Jeezy had just been named senior vice president of A&R at Atlantic Records, and this morning those rumors were confirmed by the rapper himself.
Taking to his Twitter page today (Aug. 9), Jeezy acknowledged his new position -- in a message that was also retweeted by Atlantic -- by saying "From the streets to the Boardroom. SVP of A&R at Atlantic Records I am. Let's Get it!"
Jeezy's latest album, "TM103: Hustlaz Ambition," came out last December on Def Jam.
Atlantic Records could not be reached for comment at press time, but Billboard.biz will update shortly.
