In anticipation for the Hot Boys reunion going down at Lil Weezyana Fest today, we take a look at some of Lil Wayne's best verses on Hot Boy records.
There was a time when Cash Money was in fact the strongest label in hip-hop. We're talking before unpaid producers and disgruntled artists, before feuds and lawsuits, basically before any of the negatives that cripple the label today. Cash Money used to be a label that every rapper would dream of joining, as it usually meant instant super-stardom. One hip-hop group that reached that pinnacle was The Hot Boys.
The Hot Boys, consisting of Lil Wayne, B.G., Turk and Juvenile, was Cash Money's premiere rap group in the late 90s. Their debut album Get It How You Live! sold over 300,000 copies and really put CMR on the map. On top of their legendary live shows across the United States, their two follow-up albums were also met with critical and commercial success. However, they disbanded around 2002/2003 due to *you guessed it* financial disputes with the label.
The group has never gotten back together in full, but on August 28th (today!) at Lil Wayne's Lil Weezyana Fest in New Orleans, The Hot Boys will reunite for what is sure to be a classic live performance. At a time when good memories of Cash Money Records are few and far between, Wayne manages to shine a little light on the days when Cash Money and The Hot Boys reigned supreme.
For that reason, we have compiled a list of Lil Wayne's 5 best verses on Hot Boys' songs. Did we miss one? Do you disagree? Let us know in the comments below!
