"Ha" is a 1998 single by rapper Juvenile, from his third album 400 Degreez. It was produced by Mannie Fresh. The song is notable for the unique rapping in it, Juvenile ends all of his lines with "Ha". The chorus to the song is a line taken from the earlier Juvenile single "Solja Rags". The song has since sold over 2,300,000 copies.

The music video was shot in September 1998 in New Orleans, Louisiana; in the Magnolia Projects. It shows different highlights of ghetto life.

"Ha" peaked at #13 on the Billboard Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Singles & Tracks chart and #18 on the Billboard Hot 100.[1] This song along with Juvenile's "Back That Thang Up" and B.G.'s "Bling Bling" put Cash Money Records, previously a little-known New Orleans Bounce label, into the pop mainstream.

Two remixes were recorded and also included on 400 Degreez. The first had a different beat and lyrics, and featured Juvenile's fellow Hot Boys members B.G., Lil Wayne, and Turk. The second had the same beat but different lyrics and featured Jay-Z. Jay-Z was the only guest on the album not on Cash Money Records. Rapper 50 Cent samples the songs lyrics on the song "Paper Chaser".
