“I be the player with the ice on me if cost less than 20 it don’t look right on me”. – Bling Bling – The Hot Boys
Back in August, Lil Wayne and the Hot Boys of the original Cash Money Millionaire’s fame took to the stage during Lil Weezyana Festival in New Orleans. It was awesome to see some of Hip Hop’s trendsetting artists on stage again.That appearance may not have been accidental, it looks like it was a preview of the Cash Money Millionaire camp re-upping to come back at us.
That get-together but could be the start of a reunion for some members of the late 1990’s “Hot Boys” that tore up the Hip Hop scene with hits “Back That Azz Up” featuring Lil Wayne and Mannie Fresh, “Ha”, “Tha Block Is Hot”, Chopper City In The Ghetto. The group also released singles such as, “Bling Bling” and “Cash Money Is An Army” by B.G., “Tha Block Is Hot” and “Respect Us” by Lil Wayne, and “U Understand” and “I Got That Fire” by Juvenile.
“Stack my cheese up ’cause one day I’m a give this street life up”.

Got so much ice you can skate on a nigga
When you see Cash Money you know we stay flossin’
Catch ya girl down bad ya know we straight tossin’
I ain’t seen a clique yet that can stunt like mine
I ain’t seen a marette that can run like mine
1999, and it’s our turn to shine
Fifty or better on our wrist and they all blind
They were HOT!
In a new interview with AllHipHop, Juvenile and Mannie Fresh revealed that they’re currently working on an album together with Weezy. Juvenile said that they already have some features recorded for the album though they wouldn’t say when it would be out.
Here is a clip of the interview.
I believe this just what the Hip Hop scene needs. A return to the performing pyramid by some of the performers that set a standard few out there right now are managing to reach.
I’m ready for some gritty graphics and hard-hitting bass lines from the late 90’s.
They came graphic and uncut from the street. I don’t cosign some of thier eupheisms or attitudes but I can’t deny their talent or success.
Yeah….. Like em or not they get up in yo face with some truths. It looks like they’re gearing up to come at us again.
