Having come up in the Hot Boys group alongside superstar Lil Wayne, New Orleans rapper Juvenile is a Southern hip-hop veteran, and a chart-topping one as well, having climbed the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 with his 2004 single “Slow Motion.” Cash Money label owners Ronald “Suga Slim” Williams and Brian “Baby” Williams brought Juvenile on board in 1997, releasing his noticeably more gangster album Solja Rags that same year. Juvenile joined fellow Cash Money in 1997. Both debuts were produced in total by Mannie Fresh, who was back for Juvenile’s 1998 solo release 400 Degreez, his platinum-selling, breakthrough effort thanks in part to the successful singles “Ha” and “Back That Azz Up.” Two more platinum awards came Juvenile’s way in 1999 with the successful solo album Tha G-Code and the Hot Boys’ sophomore release, Guerrilla Warfare. Juve the Great landed in 2003, and when its single “Slow Motion” featuring Soulja Slim climbed to the top of the U.S. Billboard Hot 100, Juvenile had his third platinum album award.
