The Hot Boys — Lil Wayne, Juvenile and B.G. — are expected to reunite on stage in New Orleans during NBA All-Star Weekend for the first time in seven years.
The group rose to fame during the late 90s helping their label, Cash Money Records, become one of the fastest rising labels at the time and one of the pioneering labels from the South.
The group recorded several albums during their time together, but later disbanded due to disputes over money.
Group members, B.G. and Juvenile, have long accused Cash Money CEO, Bryan “Birdman” Williams of cheating them out of royalties and left to launch their own labels.
In December 2006, B.G. phoned into a local radio station as Birdman spoke on the air about the death of his sister. During the conversation, B.G. expressed his condolences for Birdman’s loss and it seemed the beef was over, but nothing came from it.
Then last October, Lil Wayne revealed that the group had put their differences aside and were working on a new project. B.G. confirmed Weezy’s statements, saying the “streets have been demanding it.”
The group will not take the stage at Club Dream on Sunday (February 17) in New Orleans. Member Turk, however, will not be present because he is currently serving a 10 year big on an attempted second-degree murder charge and has been since 2004.
Additionally, longtime Cash Money producer Mannie Fresh is slated to join the Hot Boys, as well as Bun B.
