Juvenile's latest album Rejuvenation features Rick Ross and collaborations with Lil Wayne, DJ Khaled and Drake. The rapper is known for his incendiary live shows, which bring his signature New Orleans style to the stage. “Back That Thang Up” is usually the song that gets the audience up and dancing, but ticket buyers can expect him to perform a good smattering of hits throughout his career during a concert. He nails his vintage hits, like “Set It Off,” and mixes up his classics with newer stuff, like the bass-thumping “Mardi Gras,” “They Sleeping On Me” and “Power,” his newest single with Rick Ross. He’ll have you waving your arms back and forth as he marches across the stage with his posse behind him, backing him up.
Juvenile, born Terius Gray, has been rapping since he was 19 and quickly gained popularity in New Orleans and the surrounding areas for his quirky style and infectious rhythms. His 1999 single, “Back That Thang Up,” paved his way to stardom, and the No. 1 hit, “Slow Motion,” pushed him further into the limelight. Working with Lil Wayne and the Hot Boys, he helped create the New Orleans “bounce” craze in the 90s, and his gangster rap steadily matured into a record deal with Atlantic and chart-topping hits as a solo artist. His 2006 album Reality Check, which debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200, was recorded in part at a New Orleans studio that was flattened by Hurricane Katrina. He recorded the catchy hip hop anthem, “Get Ya Hustle On,” as a criticism on the way the Bush Administration handled the Katrina disaster. Juvenile, a southern hip-hop veteran, continues to drop fresh beats and stun crowds when on tour.
