Back with a piped up new track that tells us how he feels about himself and which era the Pittsburgh rising star should have been part of, ‘Should’a Been A Hot Boy’ details Fedd the God‘s reasoning for his liking to the N’awlins street stars. If you are not in the know about The Hot Boys’ influence or if you are unaware of who was in the group, allow me to educate you today.

In 1997, BG, Lil Wayne, Juvenile and Turk—known as The Hot Boys—put out their debut LP, ‘Get It How U Live!’. The group’s first album, solely produced by Mannie Fresh, sold over 400,000 copies independently following BG’s success with ‘Bling Bling’ in 1999. A year before BG’s solo success, Juvenile’s ‘400 Degreez’ came out. The Hot Boys member’s album is the best-selling album ever (4x platinum) released on Cash Money Records and is the artist’s best-selling album of his solo career. The label’s sound has influenced generations of rappers and artists worldwide, from their Southern slang becoming mainstream.

Listen to the bouncy record produced by Sledgren and Chris Dreamer below; stay tuned for the official music video later today.
