Juvenile is Cash Money for the second time in his career, after a lot of on-again, off-again status with his former label, as well as his (still estranged) producer, Mannie Fresh. Back in the paperwork, Juvy made his debut on “Sho Me Love.” With a very simple, straightforward Drake chorus, the song sounds nothing like YMCMB records did in the Hot Boys/Cash Money Millionaires era.

But fear not.

The song about staying true and reaching out is just the right canvas for Juvenile to address the city of New Orleans, and reflect on the disparity since Hurricane Katrina in 2005. Moreover, Juvy addresses another Bounce pioneer, Magnolia Slim, who was better known as Soulja Slim, who would find brief success at No Limit Records before his still-confusing 2003 murder.

Juvenile’s maturity and range that he seemingly found in his years dabbling with Atlantic, eOne, and Rap-A-Lot Records comes back full circle to the label he sold (and made) millions with. The Rich Gang (which also includes Mystikal and fellow Hot Boy Lil Wayne) just got a little bit deeper, and more skillful at the same time.
