Juelz Santana is back in his music bag in a big way, so much so that he’s announced a brand new project he’s dropping next month.
The Dipset rapper posted a video on Instagram on Friday (November 18) showing him sitting behind a mixing desk in the studio smoking a joint while a new song featuring A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie blaring through the speakers in the background.
The track, which finds the Bronx crooner interpolating 50 cents “Many Men,” is set to arrive this coming week, followed by the full project in December.
“GUYS!!! Dropping next week MOTION!! Mixtape dropping next MONTH… Let’s go #ICFMF #WeInMotion #BackOutSide,” Juelz Santana wrote in his caption.
Juelz’s announcement was welcomed by his loyal followers. “Bruh I’m glad you’re rapping again,” one fan wrote in the comments section, while another added: “I’m not gonna lie bro it’s about time.”
Juelz Santana has kicked off his music career again this past year. In April, he appeared on a colleague Diplomat Jim Jones’ “We Set the Trends (Remix)” alongside Lil Wayne, Migos and DJ Khaled Before drop a new song with Benny The Butcher in August after being challenged to release new music by Funkmaster Flex.
Juelz and Weezy’s rekindled relationship has brought their long-rumored mixtape I can’t feel my face back into focus. During a recent interview with VladTVSantana owed the project’s shelved release to the “politics” label.
“We didn’t get the album out on a major label because there was too much politics at the time,” he explained. “You had Def Jam, Universal, Cash Money and Diplomats. Four different entities that had to make a deal and come under one deal to push a project.”
He added: “It was a lot bigger than us. We didn’t have ultimate control. Look, now it’s a lot smaller. That’s why you can get a Durk and Lil Baby, you can get Drake and Future.”
Talking to TMZ this past summer, Juelz Santana hinted that the long-awaited project may yet see the light of day.
“All I’m saying is Wayne is my brother,” he said. “We never work on music apart from each other, as well as together, so for us to do one I can’t feel my face It is certainly not unlikely that the project will happen.”
Juelz Santana’s last solo project, #FREESANTANAfell in March 2020 under the rapper’s 27 months in prison for weapons and drug charges. It featured appearances from Lil Wayne, 2 Chainz, Jim Jones, Dave East, A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie and Jeremih.
