Question about 1999 GMC Jimmy
The ignition switch is not fitted properly to the new ignition cylinder lock.
Install your new key cylinder into the old ignition switch assembly. Make sure the contacts in the cylinder and assembly line up. Reattach wiring to ignition switch, slide it into place, screw in mounting screws and reassemble steering wheel and switches.
The key is not getting released this indicates the problem with the ignition switch or ignition lock cylinder.The ignition lock cylinder is replaced so the indication is on faulty ignition switch or the improper fitting.
But if fitting is proper and ignition switch is checked ok then did you replaced the ignition lock cylinder exactly for your vehicle or its bit different.
That can also make the problem.

Make sure the transmission is in park (for cars with automatic transmissions).Set the parking brake to prevent the car from rolling farther against the curb.
Pull hard on the steering wheel while turning it in both directions. If this doesn't free the wheel, move on to the next step that is release the parking brake and put the transmission in neutral. Let up on the foot pedal just enough to rock the car slightly.
Turn the steering wheel again. The key should turn now.
