Juvenile spoke with The Associated Press about his new single ‘Get Ya Hustle On’, which urges Katrina victims to motivate in the face of the storm’s upheaval. “I know y’all got shipped away to other parts of the country,” he said. “I know y’all been cheated out of things that y’all feel are owed to y’all. But you don’t have a right to pull a gun on the next person and take it. My point is stop feeling sorry for yourself and start doing things for yourself. OK, the government did nothing for us, everything didn’t go the way we wanted. What you gonna do? Keep crying? Nah. Get a job. Do whatever you do. Get your hustle on.”

AllHipHop.com caught up with Juvenile after the rapper filmed his new video ‘Get Ya Hustle On’ in New Orleans’ Ninth Ward in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. Asked about the efforts to rebuild New Orleans, the rapper said, “It’s more like out with the old, in with the new. Now you got [wealthy real estate barons] down there, buying up all the property – now it’s a big business venture. If you didn’t pay your taxes on your property – and half of the people weren’t able to pay taxes, you know – a lot of people lost their money for real.”
New Orleans-bred rapper Juvenile lost his home in Hurricane Katrina, the most destructive storm in U.S. history. “I am obviously devastated by my personal loss,” Juvenile said in a press release, “but thank God that I was able to get my family out to safety while many families were not so fortunate. I have lost some friends and to their families I send my deepest condolences. It is difficult to describe the feeling of losing friends, not being able to reach others and having all of your personal items destroyed, but I am still one of the fortunate ones to have my music industry family supporting me.”
Juvenile and Xzibit attended the bungalows at ‘The Style Villa,’ a three-day talent retreat featuring dozens of luxury products and services, held at the Sagamore Hotel in Miami, Florida on Friday (August 27). Check out pictures from WireImage.
