Rapper Juvenile is teaming with Rap-A-Lot CEO
James Prince in a new joint venture to release new artists.
Under the deal, Juve and J. Prince will release
new music from Skip and Wacko as well as an album by the new group Partners
"This venture is a new way for me to experience
the record business, executive producing, with J, new acts. I’m spreading out
in my career," Juve told AllHipHop.com in a statement.
Juve said that in addition to producing a number
of songs on his latest album Juve The Great which was recently certified
Gold (500,000 copies sold), he wanted to work with new artists as an entrepreneur.
The rapper will continue to tour and support
Juve The Great, which dropped on Cash Money/Universal.
"I’m excited to produce and spread my involvement,"
Juvenile continued. "To do all this, I need a great partner in the new
activity, and J, with his business skills, is just the person I need!"
J. Prince has released some of the most well
known rappers under his Rap-A-Lot label.
Geto Boys, Scarface, Do or Die, Yukmouth and
others have all worked with the mogul, who also handles the careers of boxers
Roy Jones Jr., Floyd Mayweather, Clarence "Bones" Adams and Winky
Wright via his company, Prince Boxing Enterprise.
Juvenile just released the second single from
Juve The Great. "Bounce Back" has just been released to radio
and video outlets nationwide.
