It has been seven years since Harlem’s rapper Juelz Santana released a solo album. His 2005′s sophomore album, entitled What The Game’s Been Missing! debuted at #1 on both the Top Rap Albums and Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart and #9 on the Billboard 200. The album has sold over 655,000 copies which earned Juelz his first gold plaque. The album was a success! “There It Go” was certified gold by the RIAA and reached #6 on the Billboard Hot 100 and #3 on the Hot Rap Tracks charts; “Oh Yes” reached #56 on the Hot 100 and #8 on the Rap charts. “Mic Check” reached #35 on the Billboard Hot 100.
In 2009, Juelz released Skull Gang (a compilation album with his artists) and since then he has really been quiet. He did appear on a few episodes of Love & Hip Hop which wasn’t a mainstream success.
Juelz is back in the studio working on a couple of upcoming projects. He recently took to his official Twitter @TheJuelzSantana and announced his plans to release two new mixtapes, entitled God Will’n Vol and 2. He has already collaborated with Wiz Khalifa, Lloyd Banks and Chief Keef for his upcoming projects. The track that Juelz recorded with Keef is called “Murder Murder”. I’m assuming that he scraped the Regan Era mixtape. Will Born 2 Lose, Built To Win ever see the light of day?
