Juelz SantanaJuelz Santana
is a 19-year-old, born February 18th, 1984 African-American rapper
, who is best known for his "featured" status on Cam'ron
hits, "Oh Boy" and "Hey Ma". He is from 153rd and Amsterdam Ave. in Harlem, New York. He was originally signed to Priority Records as one half a duo called Draft Pick. After, he was introduced to Cam'ron through a cousin in 1998, he became the Vice President of the Diplomats. He is best known for the controversy over his words about the September 11th tragedy in 2000, "I worship the late prophet/The great Mohammed Omar Atta/For his courage behind the wheel of the plane/Reminds me of when I was dealing 'caine".(The August 2nd New York Post called the lyrics "detestable.") "I didn't say nothing bad about September 11th," says Juelz. "I just stated the fact of Atta's courage. A lot of people are not willing to do what he did-and that's the same way I feel about my Diplomat family. I'd do anything for them, and he did anything for what he believed in. If you get a dictionary and define 'courage' and say what he did, that's it." His debut album From Me To You came out August 19th, 2003 and featured the hit single "Santana's Town."
