Nov. 18, 2003 -- Multi-platinum-selling rapper Juvenile is back with Cash Money Records and will release his fifth solo album, Juve The Great on December 23. This marks the hip-hopper's first release since 2001's set, Project English.

The first single, "In My Life," to yield from the forthcoming album, was produced by the inimitable Cash Money's in-house producer, Mannie Fresh. The track has already garnered massive early radio airplay in major markets such as Washington D.C., Norfolk, Dallas, Raleigh and Juvenile's native New Orleans. The track will be officially serviced to urban mainstream and rhythmic crossover radio stations on Tuesday, November 25.

Born and raised in New Orleans' poverty-stricken Uptown area, Juvenile learned the ins and outs of poverty growing up in the infamous Magnolia Projects. His husky delivery and rich cadences eventually caught the attention of then-indie label Cash Money Records. Shortly after he was signed, the label released his debut album, Solja Rags (1997). The underground classic sold nearly 200,00 units throughout the southern region before it was re-released nationally. Juvenile's sales continued to rise with his other projects, 4x platinum 400 Degreez (1998) platinum, The G Code (1999) and gold Project English (2001).

Breaking into the hip hop mainstream with the national anthems "Ha" and "Back That Thang Up" -- from 1998's platinum-certified 400 Degreez -- solidified Juvenile's place as one of the biggest voices to rise from the "Dirty South."
