News: Juvenile Blames Lil Wayne's Incarceration For Delayed Hot Boys Reunion
Monday, Jun 7, 2010 2:55PM
Former Cash Money Records artist Juvenile recently said Lil Wayne's current incarceration has further delayed the Hot Boys reunion.
Juvie says that a reunion is not possible until all original Hot Boys members are present.
"I really want to do that," Juvie said about a reunion. "You know if it were left up to Juvie we would do it right now man, But you cant do no Hot Boys songs without everyone present and that's the thing you got to have everyone present to make it work. I just need the information so I can write him. I've been need to get an address so I can write him." (All Hip Hop)
Last October, Juve spoke with SOHH about the delayed reunion.
"I like this question, I like this question," Juvie admitted. "I've been talking to Baby, man. I've talked to Baby, he's real behind doing the Hot Boys album thing. He done came at me three times but the whole thing was and I wanna be truthful to everybody, it was me and him talking. Me and Wayne was cool. Me and B.G. was cool, all of us was cool but I really had to talk to Baby. We had to put everything out on the table and settle our differences and that was something we'd never done. And I can honestly say it's been done now so y'all can definitely be looking forward to that album. It's coming. It's confirmed [laughs] I got a check already. I always say that when people ask like, 'Man, they already paid me on the Hot Boys album,' so you know, with me, I'm already in. It's just a matter of everybody else being in. I don't think it would be right if we left Mannie Fresh out. Don't you think? He was the producer, he did all the music for Hot Boys, so we gotta have him involved, if he don't do the whole album [then] he gotta do something on there." (SOHH)
He had also suggested the reunion album would drop no earlier than 2010.
"It's gonna be next year," Juvie said in an interview last summer. "Not this year, I can guarantee that. You'll probably start seeing visuals on us, but won't make it to the studio probably until about February when everybody's clear." (Baller Status)
Wayne was sentenced to a year behind bars last March.
Lil Wayne has been sentenced to a year in jail after pleading guilty in a New York City gun case. The Grammy Award-winning rapper was taken away in handcuffs to start serving his term immediately after his sentencing. He'll serve his sentence in city jails, not a state prison. He could be released in about eight months with good behavior. (CBS News)
