Sho Me Love

Album: Yet to be Titled (2014)

Songfacts®:

  • On October 28, 2014 Juvenile announced that he re-signed to Cash Money after nine years with Atlantic. This song, which finds the the rapper speaking directly about his re-signing, finds him noting, "I'm glad they brought me back."
  • Juvenile's 1998 album 400 Degreez earned Cash Money its first platinum LP, and over the next few years the rapper released two more solo sets for the label, before leaving them and signing a new deal with Atlantic Records in 2005. "It feels like coming home," said Juvenile. "I'd always bump into 'Slim' and 'Baby' over the last few years. If they had an event or something they wanted me to be a part of, I would be there in good spirit and faith. We were always talking. That just led to us sharing more of a collective vision."

    "Now, we're here. It's exciting," he continued. "I want to reinvent myself, and they're giving me the stage to do that. I didn't sign a record deal where I'm going to leave in two or three years."
  • The autobiographic tune also recounts the murder of Juvenile's "Slow Motion" collaborator Soulja Slim and the effects that Hurricane Katrina had on his community in New Orleans. Drake, meanwhile, croons the hook.
