The former chart-toppin’ Hot Boy is back in the booth to bring it!
HHW: How long have you been working on your album?
Where is your favorite place to record, and why?
A couple spots: Pacthwork in Atlanta, as well as Zac in Atlanta, and I also have my personal spot here in New Orleans.
What type of vibe do you like or try to create while working in the studio?
I like it to be open minded while in the studio. I’m not one to sit in the studio and act like I know it all, so I like to have a couple second opinion people around me to lemme know if I’m on point or off point, ‘cause I’m smokin’, drinkin’, an tryina feel like I’m in the club or standin’ on the block in the hood.
When do you prefer to have your recording sessions? is the time of day relevant to your creativity?
We we hours are always the best times, ‘cause I have a lot goin’ on in the day.
What are a few must-haves at your sessions?
Gotta have Henny, my herbs, my iPad, Protools, and I gotta have the TV on BET and some nice loud speakers in another room from where I’m recordin’ so I can get my writin’ on!
How did you come up with the album title?
I got a title, but I’m still unsure; the title is still kinda puzzlin’ to me, so I might have to reach out to the public for their help on that.
How do you know or determine that you’ve had a successful session?
It’s hard for me to determine that the night of, so I have to come back the next day and listen to see if I was trippin’ or on point.
Who are some of the producers you worked with on the album?
Sinister, Mannie Fresh, Drumma Boy, Steve Bolow; I’m also workin’ on a few mixtape songs wit’ Rich Boy, and hopefully Polow sends me a treat that I can add to the album.
If there’s one thing you want people to know about Juve, what would that be?
I’m a family man.
Give us a lil insight on your first single?
“Ahh Uh” is the first single, in which I talk about how I feel about wakin’ up in the mornin’ and goin’ out an gettin’ my money.
