Juvenile's "HA" lives on in 2018. The stop-start flow's DNA can be heard in the "AYE"-punctuated lines of the SoundCloud generation, but it's also being referenced much more explicitly on a regular basis. ManMan Savage's "Huh" is a prime example. Uniting the Atlanta rapper with city-mate Runway Richy as well as the buzzing West Coaster 03 Greedo, the track is a clear tribute to Juvie's class: "since Juvenile been 400 Degreez, huh?" However, the flow has been modernized with minimal trappy production that draws lines between Atlanta's current wave and the driving instrumentals of a young Mannie Fresh.
It's very clear that the song means a lot to Southern rap (the album 4x platinum, after all), as South Florida rapper Bruno Mali also did his own memorable remake of "Ha' on his excellent 2017 mixtape MADE.

Catch a n***a down player
I don't miss a beat, huh
I was Gucci'd down to the feet, huh
Ridin' 'round with that stick
In the front seat, huh
Bad bitch in the bathroom
Not to pee, huh
Went and got drop head
Just to feel the breeze, huh
Since Juvenile been 400 Degreez, huh
