Footage of Lil Wayne reuniting on stage with former Cash Money Records group Hot Boys has begun to circulate online and shows Weezy promising a collaboration album.
The video shows Weezy bringing out his past labelmates and informing audience members of their reunion.
“Say y’all wanna see some Hot Boys sh*t, right?” Wayne asked. “So for 2009 we gonna go on with the new Hot Boys sh*t…Make some motherf*cking noise for the Hot Boys! Hot Boys is B.G. Lil Weezy. Young Turk. I will pray to you [Turk]. Juvenile. Young Moolah baby. We ain’t finished though. Since we got everybody out, we gonna celebrate. Let me hear the song [‘Pop Bottles’]. Young Money, Cash Money make noise!” (Forbez DVD)
B.G. recently said the Hot Boys reunion would be one of the biggest movements in music history.
“You can look forward to that [reunion] coming real soon,” he said in an interview. “Real, real, real soon. We tying up the loose ends of the paperwork right now, and hopefully we’ll have that out this year…It’s going to be bigger than The Beatles…You know, at one point in time, you couldn’t get me to talk about it… You know, people go through things, family go through things, but they sit down, talk it over, be real about it, acknowledge their mistakes and move on.” (Vibe)
The rapper also spoke on the reunion earlier this year.
“It’s gonna be all the original members, it’s gonna be me, Lil Wayne, Juvenile, Turk is supposed to be coming home March 16th,” B.G. said in an interview. “We’re gonna do it regardless because the streets keep asking for it…Mannie Fresh created the Hot Boys sound; it’s only right that Mannie Fresh gives us that heat…Wayne made the deal; he came to us. He had a deal for a soundtrack, and he wanted to make it a Hot Boys soundtrack. He reached out to me and Juvenile…Before the reunion album, we’re gonna’ do an album which is inspired by a motion picture.” (Word of South)
Turk previously talked with SOHH about the group getting back together.
“As far as the Hot Boys being broken up for a minute, it was nothing more than a family fallout,” Turk wrote in a 2007 statement. “Lil Wayne, B.G. and Juvie are my brothers for real. Everything is back to the way things should be right now and that I look forward to joining the group and being heavily involved in the forthcoming Hot Boys reunion project. Expect this album to go down as a classic in hip-hop history.” (SOHH)
