Multi-platinum-selling rapper Juvenile has returned to the Cash Money fold and is set to release his fifth solo album, Juve The Great on December 23. This marks Juvenile’s first release since 2001’s gold certified, Project English.
The first single from the CD, “In My Life,” was produced by Cash Money’s in-house hitmaker, Mannie Fresh. The track has already garnered massive early radio airplay in major markets such as Washington D.C., Norfolk, Dallas, Raleigh and Juvenile’s native New Orleans. The video is in regular rotation at BET’s Rap City and will hit MTV2 Friday, December 19th.
As a pioneering southern rapper, Juvenile gave voice to the Dirty South and put New Orleans on the map with his in-your-face lyrics and hot beats. Juve The Great delivers 16-tracks from the old-school-flavored “Bounce Back” – featuring ‘millionaire’ Baby – to the dirty anthem, “Down South Posted” with Wacko & Skip and shows Juve is still at the top of his game. “This CD let’s the people hear the different styles, tones and different ideas that run through my head within a day’s time,” reveals Juve.
Juvenile first garnered national attention as a member of The Hot Boys with their 1997 debut Get It How U Live, followed by 1999’s platinum certified, Guerilla Warfare and 2003’s Let ‘Em Burn. He shot to big baller status with his third solo CD, 1998’s 4x platinum certified 400 Degreez, which delivered the hits, “Ha” and “Back That Thang Up.” The CD generated many awards and accolades including a Soul Train Award (2000), Billboard Award (1999) and Source Award (1999). Previous solo albums include, Being Myself on Warlock Records (1995) and his Cash Money releases; gold certified, Solja Rags (1997), platinum certified, G Code (1999), and the critically acclaimed gold certified, Project English (2001).
