Juvenile Doubts A Cash Money Reunion, Speaks On Buck & Breaks Down Why Turk Went To Jail
I was never a big fan of the Hot Boys but (on the strength of his solo work) Juvenile was always my favorite.
On A Cash Money Reunion: Juvie says that he is tired of making excuses about a Cash Money/Hot Boys Reunion. He says that it is not possible because BG and Turk are in jail. He insists that he and Wayne alone can not do a reunion.
On Drake’s remake of “Back That Ass Up”: Juvie also says that he got paid when Drake used material from his “Back That Ass Up” single. According to Juvenile the song was just collecting dust until Drake rejuvenated it.
On Young Buck Rumors: Lastly, in an unexpected twist Juvenile refuted rumors that Young Buck was ever signed to him or Cash Money Records prior to his deal with G-Unit. He says that he and Buck began creating music together but never had a written agreement. Juvenile hints that he had a confrontation with Buck over the rumors.
A New York Times reporter named Michael Wines has been reporting from Linyi, China. In an artilce entitled “China’s Obsession With Stability Can Come at the Cost of Laws” he suggests that human rights are routinely ignored by the Chinese government in exchange for expediency.
“Beijing quietly tolerates local officials’ lawlessness, and they do so for a simple reason: with rare exceptions, the system is exceedingly efficient at stifling unrest.”
The article then goes on to detail efforts to stifle the press who attempt to cover the story of Chen Guangcheng (a Chinese dissident who sought protection at the U.S. Embassy): “Journalists who sought on Sunday to talk to residents a few hundred yards from Dongshigu, the village in Linyi where Mr. Chen was held captive, were quickly escorted out by thugs in four automobiles, and later were accosted in a burst of arm-wrenching and name-calling.
Members of the same gang still keep Mr. Chen’s mother incommunicado and under siege here. Mr. Chen’s nephew faces a charge of attempted murder after he slashed a knife at plainclothes officers who invaded his home and beat him. Lawyers seeking to defend the nephew have been ordered to drop the case or face retribution.”
Wines does admit “There is no evidence that the central government in Beijing ordered this harassment, all of which is illegal under Chinese law.”
