Along with Juvenile
's 400 Degreez
's Chopper City in the Ghetto
is among the best albums released by Cash Money Records during its heyday, and the inclusion of "Bling Bling" alone makes the album notable in the context of its time period. B.G.
already had several albums to his credit by the time of Chopper City in the Ghetto
, which was his first to be released in the wake of Cash Money's distribution deal with Universal Records, but this was the one to break him nationally, as both "Cash Money Is an Army" and "Bling Bling" became hits on urban radio and video television (particularly on BET). As is the case with all Cash Money releases of the era, Mannie Fresh
produces all the tracks, and associate rappers Juvenile
, Lil Wayne
, and the Big Tymers
are frequently featured.
