Too Hood 2 Be Hollywood is the eleventh studio album by rapper B.G.. The album was released on December 8, 2009 after numerous push backs.[6] This is the first time Juvenile and Lil Wayne have collaborated on a track in eight years

Background[edit]

B.G. explained his personal development along with boasting his ability "to make a classic album", in which he stated the following,

My style has changed and I’ve grown as a person. I was real open-minded when I made this record. I’ve got one of the best A&R [reps] in the business, Jean Nelson, and we’ve come up with a vision to make a classic album that’s going to go down in the hall of fame. He was planning on joining with Nelly on a tour.[7]

B.G. also blames 50 Cent for missing Young Buck collabo. In addition to speaking on Buck's verse being taken off "Nigga Owe Me Some Money," B.G. also responded to hearing his name mentioned in Fif's "So Disrespectful" track.

"50 Cent didn't want to clear him for the record," he revealed in an interview. "50 Cent has been hating on him all away around the board. 50 has been hating on him. 50 Cent didn't want to clear him for the record. I thought ['So Disrespectful'] was funny. I mean I thought it was funny, but I didn't find it funny. He could have used something else. If your gonna' play with Buck, play with Buck, but don't play with me because he doesn't even know me like that.[8]

Production[edit]

The album includes an appearance from T.I., who is also executive producing.

Sales[edit]

The album debuted at #77 on the Billboard 200, selling 21,000 copies. The album has currently sold over 100,000 copies.
