Juvenile Talk Beast Mode; Down With Hot Boys Reunion
New Orleans based rapper Juvenile is gearing up to release his second project this summer on E1 Records, called Beast Mode, the follow up to December’s release Cocky and Confident.
“This my baby right here man,” Juvenile said of his new project. “It’s that up tempo street shit. The first single is for the women, ‘Drop that Ass’. You know its summer time. The last album, I was trying to get to the fellas, so I want to make sure I keep it balanced.“
Despite being busted for smoking weed in February 2010, while recording material for Beast Mode, Juvenile included an ode to marijuana on Beast Mode.
“I got a song on there called ‘Lalalala’ is kind of like our weed record and we kinda turn that on when we bout to get our smoke on,” Juvenile revealed.Â I got another song on there called “Nasty Girl”, and that’s gonna be one of those real, freaky, freaky, freaky records man, its crazy man (laughs)."
While the album will have no features, Juvenile is looking forward to finding features for the remixes on his upcoming project.
“You know for me I like to get artist on the remix. ‘Drop that Ass’ is out right now and I’m searching for cats on the remix, but I would rather have an artist on the remixes instead of on the album because I want people to hear it on the radio. That’s not giving the fans you, but you have fans that want to see that, so it’s just better when you do it as a remix.”
Juvenile also gave some positive hints about the chances of a Hot Boys reunion.
“I really want to do that. 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.”
Speaking on his contact with other Hot Boys members, specifically Lil’ Wayne who is currently incarcerated on Rikers Island in New York, Juvenile said. “I just need the information so I can write him. I’ve been need to get an address so I can write him.”
