On January 14, Dipset/Def Jam rapper Juelz Santana is scheduled to release his highly anticipated comeback mixtape, God Will’n. The artwork was released this weekend and Juelz goes up in smoke and shows his gold chain, watch and ring on the cover. God Will’n marks the Harlem native return to music. He hasn’t released a full album since 2005′s What The Game’s Been Missing! which debuted at #1 on both the Top Rap Albums and Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums charts and #9 on the Billboard 200. The album has sold over 655,000 copies worldwide, which was good enough to give Juelz a gold plaque. I do not know who’s featured on this mixtape but I do know that Juelz has been in the studio with Wiz Khalifa, Wale, Lloyd Banks, Lil Reese, Jeremih, Future, Lil Wayne and Yo Gotti. Any who knows me, know that I like and support Juelz music. Juelz is someone who I respect. Every time we run into each other, he always shows me love and sometimes do an interview with me. My question is, since Juelz hasn’t release a full body of work in years, can he be hot again as far as music? In 2013, is Juelz still relevant musically and are people looking for any new material from Juelz?
It is my opinion to say that Juelz is supposed to be bigger than what he is; he’s supposed to be at the top or damn near. Juelz is still young (he’s only 29) and still has time to grow. He also relates to the youth and college students which are the biggest music supporters. If Juelz release a dope mixtape, send out new Vlogs and visuals viral and start doing some promo runs, I think he can get hot again. With that being said, in 2013, I think people are still looking forward to a Juelz project. Do you agree or disagree with me? Why or why not? I want to hear your responses.
