If a real hustler never sleeps, Young Jeezy is certainly living up to his ambitions. Jeezy, whose real name is Jay Wayne Jenkins, has just landed a major role at Atlantic Records, where he will now act as the Senior VP of A&R. The news first broke on an Atlanta radio station last night, and was confirmed via a retweet from Jeezy's production coordinator. 

As far as the public knows, the "Leave You Alone" rapper is still signed with Def Jam's parent company, Universal Music Group. Seeing as how Jeezy has kept the radio stations and Billboard charts on lock with several singles at once, his industry instincts and insights should be razor sharp by now.
