The album was certified platinum July 20, 2004, becoming his third album to do so, after 400 Degreez and Tha G-Code. The album entered at #32 on the Billboard pop charts and sold over 100,000 copies in its first week. Juve the Great includes the hit single "Slow Motion" featuring Soulja Slim, who was shot dead almost a month before the album's release, which topped the Billboard Hot 100. It became the most successful single for both artists and made Soulja Slim one of the only artists to top the charts posthumously. This was his first album since his debut Being Myself not exclusively produced by Mannie Fresh.
