Jeezy Announces Release of New Album “Pressure” Arriving Dec. 15th

Grammy®-nominated multi-platinum rap superstar JEEZY has announced his hotly anticipated eighth studio album PRESSURE, set to arrive December 15th on Def Jam Recordings.

To cement the release, JEEZY surprised fans by sharing a cinematic album trailer on his social media, revealing the December 15th date and cover art while teasing an unreleased track off the album. JEEZY has foreshadowed PRESSURE’s theme on social media for several weeks with the #TrustYaProcess hashtag, meaning trust in oneself to overcome life’s most difficult challenges – JEEZY’s motto for reaching new heights throughout his legendary career, never cracking under pressure. Fans can pre-order PRESSURE with exclusive album and #TrustYaProcess merchandise now on


PRESSURE, which continues to carry the torch of JEEZY’s powerful voice to a brave new world, is the eagerly awaited follow-up to Trap Or Die 3 (October 2016), his third LP to debut at #1 Soundscan across-the-board.  Boasting a star-studded lineup of hip-hop luminaries, including Lil Wayne, Chris Brown, French Montana, Yo Gotti, Plies, and the late Bankroll Fresh, TD3 brought it back to the essence of JEEZY aka “The Snowman,” who continues to define the trap music genre with his vivid storytelling of the struggle and triumph of the streets. In March-April 2017, JEEZY headlined the “Trap Or Die 3 Tour”.

Over the course of his legendary career, Jeezy has sold more than 5 million albums worldwide and has had multiple chart topping hits.  2015 marked the 10th anniversary of Jeezy’s seminal debut solo album, the RIAA platinum Let’s Get It: Thug Motivation 101, which pioneered the trap music genre.  Recent business ventures for JEEZY include his new fitness water Defiance Fuel, his partnership in the Atlanta location of American Cut Steakhouse and his ongoing partnership with Tequila Avion.
