Juvenile Is Signed To Rap-A-Lot Records Now. Get A Glimpse Of What His New Album Sounds Like (Audio)
What a long, strange trip it’s been for Juvenile. One of Bounce music’s breakthrough stars came up with Warlock Records, which Heads may remember from late ’80s releases by The Jungle Brothers, as well as early Trick Daddy/Slip-N-Slip material. Shortly thereafter, Juvy inked with Cash Money Records, where he became the face of the label for a period of time in 1999 and 2000, before his Hot Boys cohorts were branded in the spotlight.
Since leaving the label, the New Orleans vet has worked with Atlantic Records and E1 (Koch) for projects, to mixed success. Since the early 2000s, Juve has released his U.T.P. albums with J. Prince’s Rap-A-Lot Records. After Young Buck left the clique to find platinum success with G-Unit, Wacko, Skip and Juve headed to H-Town, where they made noise with an underground following. Now, Juvy’s taking his own career to the label made famous by the Geto Boys.
Next week, Juvy is releasing The Fundamentals at RAL. While it’s kind of a sneak-attack release, which the label is known for, Juvenile released “Cradle 2 The Grave” today. The song is straight G-talk, with a beat that sounds perkier than some the rapper’s opted for since splitting with Mannie Fresh.
How’s this sit with you?
