Today In Hip-Hop: Juvenile Celebrates 38th Birthday

On this day, March 25th, in hip-hop history…


1975: Juvenile celebrates his 38th birthday today. The New Orleans-born emcee’s career began in 1995 at the age of 19 when he released his debut album Being Myself via Warlock Records. Within the next two years, Juve joined Cash Money Records’ roster and became one of their flagship artists. He would release six solo albums and three group albums with the Hot Boyz under the label’s banner, including his 1998 breakthrough 400 Degreez.

Since then, Juvenile’s history with Cash Money has been somewhat spotty. Juve initially left the label in 2002 claiming financial mismanagement, but rejoined a year later and released the platinum selling album Juve the Great. By 2004, however, Juvenile had once again parted ways with the Cash Money, this time signing with Atlantic Records. Since his second departure, Juve has released four albums, including last year’s Rejuvenation.
