New Releases: B2K, David Banner, Bravehearts, Juvenile, Three 6 Mafia & More

That hip-hop Christmas you were hoping for can become a reality if you hit the record store this week to pick up some new releases.

First up is the return of reluctant Cash Money soldier Juvenile. His new LP, Juve the Great, features the single “In My Life,” produced by and guest-starring Mannie Fresh. David Banner’s MTA2: Baptized in Dirty Water drops alongside the Three 6 Mafia’s Da Unbreakables: Screwed & Chopped and the Bravehearts’ Bravehearted, executive produced by Nas, with guests Mobb Deep, Lil Jon and Nas himself.

And B2K present the soundtrack to their first movie, “You Got Served.” Omarion, Raz-B, Lil Fizz and J-Boog’s first single, “Bada Boom,” features Fabolous and extols the virtues of an “ass in them jeans.” Bada bing-le bells.
