Juelz Santana has been everywhere of late. Whether it's his near-constant guest-hosting duties on BET and MTV, his ubiquitous presence on the mixtape circuit, or his addictive new heat rock "There It Go (The Whistle Song)" - Blender Magazine's "Song Of The Month" - blasting from every car stereo and club sound system in the country, Juelz has become everyone's rapper-du-jour. Even the hipster set has joined the movement: indie-dance darling M.I.A. frequently namedrops Juelz as her favorite rapper, and the Dipset lieutenant even teamed up with UK Grime hero Kano for a free outdoor concert in New York's ultra-hip Lower East Side.
Over the past few years, the game has watched Juelz Santana grow from his role as Cam'ron's protÃ©gÃ© to become one of hip-hop's brightest stars, its biggest personalities, and its finest MCs. With a certain cooler-than-thou swagger, and plenty of uptown attitude, Juelz has become, as he so eloquently puts it, "Human Crack In The Flesh."
