Throwback Tune: "Back That Azz Up"

Back in the late 1990s Cash Money's biggest artist wasn't Lil Wayne, instead it was his labelmate Juvenile.  His 1999 hit single "Back That Azz Up" (edited as "Back That Thang Up") managed to peak at number 19 on the Billboard Hot 100 and even featured a pint sized Lil Wayne and along with Mannie Fresh on the track.  "Back That," was released as the second single from his now 4x platinum 1998 album 400 Degreez.

Take a listen to the song, you'll definitely remember it, and you may even be surprised that Lil Wayne was featured until he pops up rapping his verse near the songs outro.  Wayne even shouts out "CMB make you drop it like its hot," in reference to Cash Money Billionaires, which Wayne currently reps as YMCMB-Young Money Cash Money Billionaires, in relation to the Young Money Entertainment imprint.
