Wale, Fabolous, Young Jeezy, T.I. and Meek Mill got together in the revamped version. "I heard the record, loved it, seen it go crazy in the club. I couldn't visualize it without a Young verse on there, so I just went ahead," Jeezy said.

After delaying it for several times, he's now set to release the album in the United States on February 21. For the roadshow, he's scheduled to kick it off on February 21.
