Former Hot Boys member Turk recently spoke on spending nearly a decade behind bars and how much contact he had with Cash Money artists during his prison stint.
According to Turk, youngest Hot Boys member Lil Wayne kept money in his pockets throughout the bid.
“I’m always open to that. That’s an option,” Turk said referring to possibly signing back to Cash Money. “I’ve talked to Baby on several occasions, while I was incarcerated. I’ve talked to Lil Wayne. Wayne sent me money. I talked to B.G., but unfortunately he was locked up when I came out. I spoke to Juve, Mannie Fresh, everybody. It’s all love. We’re gonna sit down, chop it up as men and see what the future got for us. But right now, it’s about that YNT Empire–Young N Thuggin. I’m pushing on my own right now because a man gotta stand on his own, but I’m looking forward to working with the whole industry. It’s all love.” (XXL Mag)
Shortly after getting released, Turk gave his first post-prison radio interview.
“I’m outta here, man,” Turk said in an interview. “They took [the shackles] off, after eight years, eight months, sixteen days. It’s a blessing, it’s a miracle. First things first, man, getting my family straight. That goes without being said. I’ve been working on an autobiography, I finished it, I’m about to get a deal for that — you’ve got to be productive [while locked up] or you’re going to go crazy. I just stayed in contact with the industry, staying abreast with what was going on, trying to educate myself as much as I can so when I did get out, I wasn’t too far behind. They in trouble once they hear this music.” (Q 93)
Just last month, ex-Hot Boys member Juvenile reunited with Wayne and Baby.
Everything may be picture perfect between three of the original members of Cash Money’s Hot Boyz. Juvenile, Lil Wayne and Birdman reunite on Juvy’s new track “Picture Perfect.” “Picture Perfect” marks the first time Juvy and Weezy have reunited on a track in almost a decade. The Hot Boyz link up and paint a perfect picture on the Mike WiLL-produced track. “Juvenile I’m throwback/like 80 something I go back/dem brown bags I sold that/them street corners I know that/appetite, I’m so hungry/democratic, go donkey,” raps Juvenile. “I’m picture perfect/I paint a perfect picture/I’m spooning with yo bitch/and make you do the dirty dishes/ man I hate them thirsty b*tches, cut’em off like circumcision/I’m the type to talk sh*t, and it be words of wisdom,” raps Lil Wayne.

The record came shortly after buzz developed on an ex-Cash Money artist coming back to the team.
The domination continues. I am hearing from a reliable source that the empire created by Baby and Wayne are about to sign one of the best selling rappers from the original CM Records crew. Well? I can’t say just yet, but it is coming in the next two weeks. Take a guess. Its very easy. (All Hip Hop Rumors)
