Juelz Santana Plans Three Mixtapes Before Studio Album
Juelz Santana plans to flood the streets with plenty of new music. Kicking it backstage at the Dipset reunion show in Minneapolis, Minn. earlier this week, the New York rapper explained that he plans on breaking his musical silence with an onslaught of mixtapes, with three planned leading up to the release of his third studio album 'Born to Lose, Built to Win' later this year.
The 29-year-old, born LaRon Louis James, explained that his oft-delayed 'Reagan Era' mixtape is on its way. "My mixtape is coming out first. That's going to be like an album, 'The Reagan Era,' the long awaited, aka well worth it," he told The Parker Report. "I promise you that. The album will be out probably a couple months after the mixtape, called 'Born to Lose, Built to Win.''
His musical output has been slow since his studio got shut down following a police raid in January, but as soon as the problem is cleared up, he'll be right back at it. "The mixtape will be out soon as I get my studio opens," Santana revealed. "I had a little altercation with my studio so my studio got shut down. So I'm putting my mixtape out right after that."
After 'Raegan Era' drops, Juelz also plans on putting out a Skull Gang mixtape and possibly another street release before the follow-up to 2005's 'What the Game's Been Missing!' "We gon' do the Skull Gang mixtape after that, and I might do another mixtape. But that's going to be pretty much leading up to my album," he stated. "I ain't got no exact dates, but as soon as the mixtape is released, it ain't gonna stop after that."
Earlier this week, Juelz had another altercation with the cops in New York City. On the way to the Chris Brown 'F.A.M.E.' album release party and concert, Santana, who was scheduled to take the stage, was stopped and searched, prompting him to miss his appearance.
