Biography

The Hot Boys were a rap group from New Orleans, Louisiana. The members were JuvenileLil’ WayneB.G. and Turk. Bulletproof was an original member, but left the group before they released their first album. They made their first official appearance together on B.G.'s third studio album, It's All On U. They soon released their debut album entitled, Get It How U Live!, which sold over 400,000 copies primarily in New Orleans.

In 1998, Cash Money Records agreed to a $30 million pressing and distribution contract with Universal Records. This led to releases such as 400 Degreez by Juvenile, which was certified 4x Platinum by the RIAA. The Hot Boys made numerous appearances on many of the albums' tracks such as, "Back That Azz Up" featuring Lil Wayne and Mannie Fresh, and "Ha", where the Hot Boys were featured in the music video. The Hot Boys appeared on both Lil Wayne and B.G.'s albums in 1999, Tha Block Is Hot, by Lil Wayne, and, Chopper City In The Ghetto, by B.G.. Both albums were certified Platinum. On July 27, 1999, The Hot Boys released their second studio album entitled, Guerrilla Warfare, which went platinum just within a few months.The album also had contributions from the Big Tymers, Baby and Mannie Fresh. Just like the group's previous album, Mannie Fresh produced every track.

The original Hot Boys were Terrence “Gangsta” Williams (Brother of Cash Money CEO Bryan “Birdman” Williams) Sterling, Mosquito, and Dooney. 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 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.
