Six years ago, Juelz Santana was preparing to take over the hip hop world. Despite the falling out between Diplomat Records and Jay-Z, Juelz Santana was signed to Def Jam and ready to take over. Juelz Santana had been making his rounds, recently collaborating with a resurgent Lil Wayne and preparing his solo album.
The year of 2007 was to be the big year for Juelz Santana. First, he announced his collaborative mixtape with Lil Wayne, which morphed into I Can’t Feel My Face. After announcing the album with Lil Wayne, Juelz Santana said his album, Born to Lose Built to Win (The Reagan Era) would be released in 2007.
However, fighting within the Dipset camp caused things to be delayed. A silent beef between the leaders of the crew, Cam’ron and Jim Jones put things on hold. As a result, the mixtape scene is where Jim Jones and Juelz Santana roamed. Five years have since passed and the crew has reunited and Santana still has his projects in the works.
MTV News caught up with Juelz Santana at Meek Mill’s birthday bash and he spoke on his upcoming projects. Following the delays of his project with Lil Wayne and Wayne admitting he used a lot of the material for his next solo album, Juelz Santana said they are in a “good space” to complete the new album.
