The 50 Best New Orleans Rap Songs

#22. Juvenile "400 Degreez" (1998)

Producer: Mannie Fresh
Album: 400 Degreez
Label: Cash Money/Universal

While the rest of the world harps on the hits of crossover labels Cash Money and No Limit, many deep album cuts are held in equal esteem in New Orleans and throughout the South. The club classic "400 Degreez" is a great example of this. Opening on a hard vocoded chant of "400 De-gre-eez," the short track finds Juve at his most combustible, bragging about beating felony charges and how he eats, sleeps, shits, and talks rap.
