Now the third is on its way. "It's time for Graduation!" Jeezy wrote on Twitter.
As the Cold Summer tour comes to a end.. It was inspiring seeing my day one fans since my first album & class TM 101 come out every night. Now class is coming to a end. It's time for Graduation! My Last Album & Final Class: TM104 -#TrustYaProcess ☃️— Sno (@Jeezy) March 22, 2018
The third installment of Thug Motivation—which marked his transition from Young Jeezy to simply Jeezy—dropped in 2011 and featured Lil Wayne, Pusha T, Jay Z, T.I., Andre 3000, Future, and more.
