    Alright, my 3rd time around as host, let's do this!

    Keeping this first post mostly empty for when it switches to the thread for the album pick at the end of the month (tho a little sidenote, I volunteered to run this thread 'cause I knew it'd be the easiest of the 3 tracks to manage this month, since we think we already have a good guess on what the album is).

    HINTS

    Cash Money Records taking over for the '18 & '19! (shoutout @KenKaniff)
    @Storf bought this album secretly from Wal-Mart when he was 13 (so before April 2000)
    First time ever on vinyl
    VMP mostly kept their considerations to Cash Money albums released from '98 onwards (dunno whether or not if it's a definitive hint, but worth considering when guessing)
    Young Flowers
    Two Dudes and a Lady (assuming ours is a dude)
    • The chances that all 3 tracks are solo artists this month are "very good"
    3, 3, 4

    GUESSES

    The Front Runner:

    • Juvenile - 400 Degreez (guessed by @Melt Face Molly Drop; #4)

    Others:

    • Lil Slim - The Game is Cold (guessed by @dirty hands; #11)
    • Mr. Ivan!! - 187 in "A" Hockey Mask (guessed by @dirty hands; #12)
    • Juvenile - Tha G-Code (guessed by @Jmcg85; #36)
    • Lil Wayne - Tha Block is Hot (guessed by @twentytwo; #38)

    I'm going with 400 Degreez.

    Storf said in a post, forget in which thread, that basically Cash Money gave them the keys to the building. Kind of let them pick whatever they wanted to press. If this month is another Cash Money, it has to be 400 Degrees. There's no way they did 2 Wayne's, A Hot Boys album and a Mannie Fresh album and Jan will do ___ but will skip over a Juvenile release, considering his importance to the Cash Money label.

    Does this mean that if come February they pull you in AGAIN that you should've done the 3 month sub to save 6 bucks? Can't remember the last time they legitimately got me for 3 months straight based on the main subs alone, but this is looking promising.

    If that does manage to happen (which i doubt mainly for monetary reasons. It'd have to be really good) they deserve the extra 6 bucks.

    I’m going to go with Inner Circle - Bad Boys.

    A little more reggae than rap, but never on vinyl, and I think it would be awesome. I bought this CD sometime in the 90’s and still listen to it all the way through quite often.

    I am sure it would sell quite well too.

    Yes. Call me dumb, but what is a Cash Money album? Is that the band/group? Why would they give away that hint so soon?

    Which is ironic bc the label head stole from all the artists. They weren’t getting their money!

    I know we have before April 2000, in the AMA stort said he was "responsible for 80s and 90s picks" and mentioned this one so I guess that can shave a few months off
