New Orleans Club Plans Hot Boys Reunion for All-Star Weekend
New Orleans club Dream, located at 309 Decatur Ave., has announced that they will be hosting a Hot Boys reunion during the upcoming NBA All-Star Weekend. According to the club’s website and flyers advertising the event, Lil Wayne, Mannie Fresh, Juvenile and B.G. will all be in attendance. Turk, the only other original group member is currently incarcerated on an attempted murder conviction. The reunion is being billed as part of a three day All-Star celebration that the club is holding, which includes a “Welcome to New Orleans” kick-off party hosted by NBA stars Chris Paul and Baron Davis on Friday (February 15); a “$100 Million Players Ball” with Weezy, Juelz Santana and Rick Ross on Saturday; and the Hot Boys reunion finale on Sunday. After helping Southern rap go national in the late ’90’s, the Hot Boys famously disbanded amid allegations of financial mismanagement by Cash Money founder Birdman. Producer Mannie Fresh would eventually leave the crew as well after making similar allegations. At press time, XXLMag.com was unable to confirm the event with any of the artists involved. Tickets for the reunion are currently available at club Dream’s website www.allstarnola.com.
