Notes

  • All instances of years in the album are edited:
    • In Down Here Turk says "...niggas don't fight no mo' - all they do is slang that iron, niggas they killin' slow - that's how it go in ('99)..."
    • In Do Whatcha Do B.G. says "...Fresh got the 'vette, Baby got the 470 Lex, Juve got the new (2000) Yukon - Wayne got a coupe..."
    • Also in Do Whatcha Do, Turk says "...So whodi lay low - be cool, let me shine, told you that it was goin' down in ('99)..."
    • In Introduction B.G. refers to the 2000 Excursion.
  • Turk's verse from Introduction is also used in his lead single It's In Me from his 2001 album Young & Thuggin'.
  • Featured guests were later added to some tracks, as evident by Baby's references to himself as the Birdman, which he didn't do until Juvenile, Turk, and B.G. had left the label.
  • Lil Wayne's verses give dead on clues to when tracks were recorded. For example: His verses on Introduction or Down Here were recorded during his 'clean rap' phase (also obvious by his more nasal tone); while Jack Who, Take What or Stick and Move were recorded after he reached 18 and began using profanity regularly. (See Lil Wayne as to why)
  • There are two different album covers; the original can be seen in old Cash Money album liners. The major differences are:
    • On the original cover B.G. and Juvenile are wearing shorts, in the final they are wearing jeans.
    • The Hot Boys' logo on the original is the same as their previous albums, while in the final it has been fleshed out with diamonds and changed to a 'platinum' appearance.
