Terius Gray (born 25 March 1975), better known by his stage name Juvenile, is an American rapper and actor from New Orleans, Louisiana. Juvenile first began recording songs in the early 1990s, and released his debut album, Being Myself, in 1995. After it became a regional success, he signed to Cash Money Records and became a member of the Hot Boys. In 1997, he released his second album, Solja Rags, which saw some national success as it charted on the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart.

Juvenile's 1998 album, 400 Degreez, served as his breakthrough album, going on to sell over 5 million copies worldwide. Its singles "Ha" and "Back That Azz Up" both became very successful songs and charted on the Billboard Hot 100. Over the next two years, Juvenile released two more albums for Cash Money: Tha G-Code in 1999 and Project English in 2001. Both albums were very successful and reached the top ten of the Billboard 200, but they did not match the success of 400 Degreez. His 2003 album, Juve the Great, was his last for Cash Money before departing the label and signing to Atlantic and founding his label, UTP Records. His seventh album, Reality Check, debuted at number one on the Billboard 200. 2009's Cocky & Confident only reached the #49th position on the same chart, while 2010's Beast Mode was not able to chart at all. His latest album, The Fundamentals, was released in 2014 to mixed reviews. Later that same year, Juvenile resigned to Cash Money and is currently working on his twelfth studio album.
