Turk On Hot Boys Reunion Album: ‘I Don’t Have Nothing to Do With That’
Rap fans were excited to hear the news that Mannie Fresh and Juvenile are planning to record a collaborative album together featuring former Hot Boys member Lil Wayne. But former Hot Boys member Turk isn't so thrilled about the reunion.
Turk, who was released from prison in October of 2012 after serving nearly nine years on weapons and drug charges, wasn't mentioned in any of his former groupmate's plans for an album and has taken issue with the fact that it is being billed as a Hot Boys reunion. He shared his gripes about the supposed album with AllHipHop.com.
“People can stop hitting me up about any album. I don’t have nothing to do with that,” he said. “I’m focused on my movement and what I’m doing. But, like I’ve always said, there can’t be a Hot Boys reunion without B.G.”
B.G. – known as the original Hot Boy and the first to join Cash Money Records – is currently spending 14 years in a federal prison after pleading guilty gun possession and witness tampering in 2012. As far as the album announced by his former Hot Boys member, Turk remains diplomatic, but eyes it with an air of skepticism. “I look forward to hearing that first single," he said.
He also took to Twitter to take a thinly veiled swipe at the album, writing "Don't believe what you hear and half of what you see #Ugghhh"
This recent announcement isn't the first time we've heard talks of a Hot Boys reunion, which is said to have been in the works at various points over the past decade, but never materialized. The group's last release, Let 'Em Burn, was released in 2003 in the wake of Juvenile, B.G., and Turk's departure's from Cash Money following alleged financial misappropriation by the label.
