Juvenile Back In The Studio With Mannie Fresh for Upcoming Album

juvenile1.jpgIt has only been a year since Juvenile’s last album — 2006’s Reality Check — but the New Orleans native is currently putting the finishing touches on his upcoming LP with longtime producer Mannie Fresh. The album, which is still untitled, will be tentatively released this fall on UTP/Atlantic Records. “I done matured a lot, ‘cause you know my kids is getting older,” Juve told XXLMag.com about the direction of his new music. “It’s not all about Juve no more. Me and Mannie been back in the studio [and] I had to humble myself down…pimp down a level. I just want people to listen to this album and realize the time behind it. Realize the amount of years that I been around to still be doing what I’m doing and at the caliber I’m doing it.” While Juve is hoping to release the album this fall, even he admits he doesn’t know exactly when it will drop. “I don’t know nothing,” Juve told XXLMag.com. “I’m just doing songs. I’m a background player on this one. I’m a let Mannie and Atlantic call the shots.”

    Juve is that dude man, I just talked to em last week. Swear Bro. We went to the Buck / Juve concert at Destiny and nukkas started shootin in there so we got our money back n dipped. We stopped for gas and Juve is there with his crew eatin pork rinds and shit, so we kicked it with em for a hot one. He was a real dude, not all superstar security get away from me n shit, just a real cat. I got respect for that. He was bumpin some of his new ish and it was fire man, forreal. So imma be coppin that, Juves been at it a long time.

    1 hunned.

    I think that juvie is the s*%#, and hopes that him and b.gizzle do more songs together. basically with turk, and even do more songs with cashmoney.

    I’m from New Orleans, downtown but I still cutt 4 Juve. The Hot Boys was da most influential rap group fo da South as far as nation wide recognition. Mannie Fresh single handedly changed the sound of rap music w/ dem fast pace drum beatz. Today every Southern producer has adapted to that style. Turn on the radio and Listen!! Bow ya head as show some respect!
