Cash Money’s Lil Wayne and ex-labelmate Juvenile enjoyed a short-lived reunion in Miami Sunday (August 19) after police arrested Juvie on a disorderly conduct charge.
Details on the arrest hit the Internet hours after it all went down Monday morning.
Juvenile — real name Terius Gray — had just reunited with Lil Wayne on stage at LIV nightclub earlier in the evening … when something went wrong. Juve and Wayne — who were in the Hot Boys together back in the late ’90s — had a long running beef when the group broke up … and last night was the first time they have been on stage together since the feud. But around 7AM, cops say Juvenile — who’s listed at 5’11, 150 lbs — was involved in a fight that began inside the nightclub and spilled outside to the front of the hotel. Security told police the people involved in the fight were “creating a threat to life and property as well as the overall safety of the patrons inside.” Miami Beach PD responded to the scene and arrested Juve — he was hauled to a nearby station where he was booked. He is still in custody. (TMZ)
In April, the former Cash Money rap star talked about leaving Birdman’s popular label in the 2000’s.
“I wanted to stay,” Juve said in an interview “You never wanna leave a winning team. That’s like [Michael] Jordan leaving the Bulls. I just felt like I wanted to be compensated for my work, I just wanted to get paid for it. … Once the success came, things started switching up and I was paying attention. … [Child custody battle?] if you want to know what the situation is, I want custody of my son. That’s all that is.” (Power 105.1)
Back in January, ex-Cash Money producer Mannie Fresh called out the label over financial woes.
“We still have money issues. We will always have them, as long as Cash Money is selling anything that has Mannie Fresh on it. ‘Til this day, I’m like, “Dude, what’s going on? Where are the statements for this?” There’s always some kind of complication, that’s all I can say,” Fresh said in an interview. “Everybody has to get paid. It would be something large if Cash Money did a tour with the first generation of artists, but with everything that’s happened, we need money upfront and on top of that we all need our own attorneys. You don’t get my money and pay me-I get my money directly.” (Billboard)
In 2009, Juve spoke to SOHH and addressed the long-delayed Hot Boys 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)
