Juvenile Talks Hip-Hop Beef, 50 Cent & ‘Mardi Gras 2′ Mixtape With ‘The Breakfast Club’ [VIDEO]
Juvenile hit Power 105.1's The Breakfast Club this morning and chopped it up with the crew about past beef, his new Mardi Gras 2 mixtape and hip-hop memories.
The first topic of the interview that comes up is his current situation with Cash Money Records, with whom he reportedly inked a deal with in 2014. Juvie confirms the news and says that he and Baby put their much-publicized financial issues to the side to get back in business with the label that he introduced to the mainstream in 1998.
When asked about the current rift between Birdman and Wayne, the Nola veteran is mum on the subject and says he just "stays out the way" and stays neutral. His relationships with his former Hot Boys comrades B.G. and Turk are part of the conversation, as well as his history of putting on artists such as Young Buck. There's also talk of his little known beef with 50 Cent, which stemmed from Fif thinking Juvenile was trying to take Lloyd Banks away from G-Unit and sign him to his UTP record label, which Juvie claims is untrue.
He reminisces on seeing Eric B. & Rakim and Scarface perform live as a kid, the redevelopment of his New Orleans stomping grounds and explains how he handles being an father and career consultant to his rapping son.
The interview catches Juvie taking a stroll through memory lane, as well as plugging his upcoming mixtape, Mardi Gras 2, which drops Mar. 26, so be sure to keep an eye out for that.
