Biography

The Hot Boys (sometimes Hot Boy$ or Hot Boyz) were an American rap group active from 1997 to 2003. Currently there is talk of the group reuniting for another album, however nothing has yet been released. The group consists of rappers formerly on the New Orleans-based record label, Cash Money Records. The members were Juvenile, Lil’ Wayne, B.G. and Turk (Often called “Young Turk” or “Lil Turk”). Rapper Bulletproof was an original member, but left the group before they released their first album.

The Hot Boys were originally based loosely on a group of hustlers and gangsters that ran uptown New Orleans in the late 80’s and early 90’s. The original Hot Boys were Terrence “Gangsta” Williams (Brother of Cash Money CEO Bryan “Birdman” Williams) Sterling, Mosquito, and Dooney. The only surviving Hot Boy is Gangsta, who is currently serving three life sentences in Ohio. Bryan “Birdman” Williams has always maintained a close relationship with the remaining Hot Boy, which has fueled rumors that the Cash Money CEO may be involved in illegal activities, including the 1996 murder of Cash Money rapper Yella Boy of U.N.L.V.. The later Hot Boys group on Cash Money took this name, but had no connection with this earlier group.

Throughout the year of 2001, there was a lot of controversy surrounding legal issues within members of the group. Juvenile, B.G., and Turk felt like they weren’t getting their “fair share” in their money from Baby and Slim, the owners of Cash Money Records. This led to the three departing from Cash Money Records in 2002.

    Turk was weak. Everybody else was cool, even though Wayne sounded like a bitch.
