From Me to U is the debut studio album by American hip hop recording artist Juelz Santana. The album was released on August 19, 2003, under Diplomat, Roc-A-Fella and Def Jam. The album was seen as the introspective introduction of the rapper to mainstream entertainment. Following the success of various street mixtapes and being part of the rap group The Diplomats, co-founded by rappers Cameron Giles (a.k.a. Cam'ron) and Joseph Guillermo Jones II (a.k.a. Jim Jones),

From Me to U was the second official album to be released while the super group was signed to Diplomat Records, a sublabel of Roc-A-Fella Records at the time, following Cam'ron's Roc-A-Fella debut Come Home with Me. Upon its release in 2003,after one year of recording and mastering, the 20-tracked album found commercial success, reaching #8 on Billboard 200 and#3 on the Top Hip-Hop/Rap Albums, even though it did not receive critical acclaim throughout the industry. Though some tracks originally were featured on Juelz's street mixtape Final Destination, they were still applied to the track listing of the official album as well.
