Grammy®-nominated multi-platinum rap superstar JEEZY builds up to the December 15th arrival of his hotly anticipated new studio album PRESSURE, with today’s announcement of the “Cold Summer Tour” set to open at the House of Blues in Anaheim, CA on February 7, 2018. The 6-week, 31-city U.S. tour with special guest Tee Grizzley will wrap up on March 23rd at Cain’s Ballroom in Tulsa, OK.

Coinciding with today’s tour announcement, all album bundles purchased on www.JeezyShop.com will automatically come with the exclusive pre-sale ticket access code. Tickets and exclusive VIP packages go on sale to the general public on PRESSURE album release day, December 15th.
Underscoring PRESSURE’s release, JEEZY surprised fans by releasing the star-studded tracklist for the album, which includes Kendrick Lamar, J. Cole, Diddy, Rick Ross, 2 Chainz and more. Earlier, fans were treated to a cinematic album trailer on his social media, which revealed the December 15th date and diamond-encrusted cover art, while teasing an unreleased track off the album. JEEZY has also been foreshadowing 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.
PRESSURE continues to carry the torch of JEEZY’s powerful voice to a brave new world. The new album is the eagerly awaited follow-up to Trap Or Die 3 (October 2016), JEEZY’s 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, and his partnership in the Atlanta location of American Cut Steakhouse, and his ongoing partnership with Tequila Avion.
