While rumors of a Hot Boys reunion have been circulating the net for some time now, it has yet to materialize. During a recent interview Juvenile told XXLMag.com that all four members of the group have yet to hit the studio together.
“They already gave me some money on that project but I don’t really know what happened to that,” Juvie told XXL. “I would love to give people a concrete answer but all I can tell you is I did receive some money for that project. I don’t know what happened with the business on everybody else so I can only speak on a Juvenile standpoint.”
Although he has already been compensated, Juvie says that himself, Lil Wayne, B.G and Turk, have yet to make any new tracks together. When asked if they have even recorded any new music, the New Orleans native replied, “Nah we never made it to that point. “ He does assure us, on the other hand, that him and B.G. have shared the vocal booth together on one track.
As XXL previously reported, Juvie recently released a new song from his upcoming ninth studio album, Cocky and Confident. On the track, titled “My Money Don’t Fold,” he uses the term “soldier” disrespectfully which fans speculated might be aimed towards Soulja Boy. Juvie cleared up his true meaning, saying the term is a popular slang in the South, similar to the way New Yorkers say “son.”
“People are taking it the wrong way,” Juvenile explained. “I said ‘soldier’ and everyone thinks I’m talking about Soulja Boy. But that’s been my language and my word long before Soulja Boy even came about. That’s really how we talk down here.”
Cocky and Confident is currently slated for an October release on UTP/E1 Music/Atlantic. In the meantime fans can hit Juvie on his twitter page, @juviethegreat. –Elan Mancini with additional reporting by Vanessa Satten
