According to Jeezy, he has also put in work with producer Swizz Beatz.

“Oh man, sooner than later,” Jeezy said about the album’s release date last January. “I’m finishing up now, wrapping up now. I was just in the studio 15 minutes ago. Shout-outs to the homie Swizz [Beatz]. [We’re] doing some of everything. You know Swizz will keep you up all night. [We did] like two and half [songs.] Look for the album asap.” (“Ed Lover Show”)

Jay-Z recently said he had plans to drop a joint record featuring Jeezy and Trey Songz under their new moniker.

“Yeah, the Mob Squad, I’m trying to put that together,” Jay toldradio personality Greg Street. “Trey made a song, I’m just trying to refine the hook so we can get our first song out there. I don’t know if Jeezy heard it yet so I’m probably gonna surprise him with this but we got [it.] Mob Squad.” (V-103 Atlanta)
