One of the first rappers to make it big from New Orleans was Juvenile, putting the city of New Orleans and local label, Cash Money Records, on the map. A decade and a half after the success of Juvenile, Cash Money Records is still dominating the game. In recent years, Juvenile has faded into the background, as he has been dealing with personal issues.
However, the late 1990s and the early 2000s were dominated by Juvenile and his music. Along the way, Juvenile worked with the biggest names and inspired many of today’s current rappers. Even serving as inspiration for current hip hop kingpin, Lil Wayne, Juvenile’s legacy runs deep. Now, Juvenile is back in the studio, preparing another album.
Rejuvenation is the next album from Juvenile and he is calling upon several big names. With Rick Ross’ collaboration, “Power,” already set, Juvenile has called upon Jay-Z, Drake, and now Jay Electronica to contribute to his album. A New Orleans guy, a lot like Juvenile, Juve is a big fan of Electronica, as they grew up in the same Magnolia projects.
