Juvenile's new album "Reality Check" is supposed to be out on February 28th 2006, and will be a double-disc set. It's already sparked lots of buzz just from the Katrina-themed cover art that's been seen online, plus reality check for Curtis Jackson after 50's uninformed Katrina comments as reported by SOHH.com
"After years of label woes with Cash Money Records, Juvenile is finally readying his Atlantic debut, Reality Check. In this SOHH.com exclusive, Juvey answers 50 Cent's Hurricane Katrina comments and vents on Baby.
Though he hasn't been in New Orleans since Katrina hit last summer, Juvenile has experienced the tragedy first hand. The gravely-voiced rapper lost his recently built house in the flood. That's probably why he has a hard time listening to outsiders weigh in on the crisis.
"I ain't know 50 said that," Juvey told SOHH.com in disbelief. "If he believe they did the best they could, you wrong like a motherfucka. You got it twisted homie. You make it bad for yourself man. You'll lose all records sales down here with that stuff. I ain't know that's what he said. People from New Orleans don't know that.
"I mean the tsunami was an act of God," he added. "The way they reacted towards that...I'm looking at them spend maybe five to six billions of dollars every month on a war that ain't even ours over somebody else's oil. You're telling me that you can't fund [a] part of your country with the right amount of money to take care of these people. New Orleans ain't even a big city so how could you have that problem. I heard that the families [of 9/11] got funded. And that ain't even a whole city. That's really one building that had two branches. It's [New Orleans] a whole city, so you're telling me they did the best they could?"
