*According to new statistics released this week, eight million U.S. blacks aged 18 and over are still not registered to vote. Young Jeezy plans to reduce that number today by at least one.
In conjunction with this week's release of his third solo album, "The Recession," the rapper is hosting a voter registration drive as part of a full day of events in his Atlanta hometown, including an in-store appearance, concert and star-studded release party.
Jeezy, who turns 31 in October, said he will register to vote during the event held from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. at Sean "Diddy" Combs’ Justin’s Restaurant (2200 Peachtree Rd.).
"The Recession" includes Jay-Z's remix to Jeezy's "Put On" as one of two bonus tracks added to its 18 cut
