If you thought Rap-a-Lot had a solid outing last year with Pimp C's posthumous debut and Bun B's perfect Source score for Trill OG, wait till you see what J. Prince has lined up for 2011. The Houston label's Commander-in-Chief spoke to TheSource.com about his plans for the year.
You can expect a batch of new albums from the usual suspects: Pimp C, Bun B, Z-Ro and Trae tha Truth, as well as a new disc by New Orleans rapper Juvenile and some members of the Cash Money crew.
Prince's wish list includes a full-fledged Cash Money reunion.
"If I have my way, the whole Cash Money crew would be on there [Juvie's album]," said Prince. "I think they were family in the beginning, and I view them as family now.
"My relationship with Baby is superb. We're all businessmen, so there's no reason we can't come together and make it happen."

Prince has a history of extending his arms to non-Texas artists. Chicago rap outfit Do or Die made its debut on Rap-a-Lot and Cali's own Yukmouth launched his Smoke-a-Lot label as a joint venture with Prince and company.
