When original Hot Boys rapper Turk (real name Tab Virgil) was released from prison this October after serving nearly nine years on felony weapons charges, the New Orleans native wasted no time in getting back to work.

Turk recruited fellow original Hot Boys Lil Wayne and Juvenile for a song called “Zip It,” from Turk’s new mixtape, Blame it on the System, and he also managed to get the other Hot Boy, B.G. on the remix, despite B.G.’s recent 14-year prison sentence.

In a new interview, Turk goes into detail about his days on Cash Money, overcoming his drug abuse (he says he introduced B.G. to heroin), Birdman’s ruthless business practices, and whether or not he’ll be joining Lil Wayne’s YMCMB label.

“I introduced B.G. to shooting heroin and cocaine,” Turk said. “We was on the Cash Money/Ruff Ryders tour. B.G. had been getting high; I had been getting high. In New Orleans, Uptown, that’s the drug of choice, heroin. You got kids, 12, 13-years-old on heroin. As I was coming up, people glorified it like they do mollies today.”
