The Week In Rap: The Indestructible Career Of Juicy J

I stopped doing Mixtape Of The Week at the exact right goddam time. Three weeks ago, when I wrote my last MOTW column, "mixtape" still meant "thing that rappers give away for free on the internet." But now Drake is calling If You're Reading This It's Too Late a mixtape, even though he's selling… More »

Download Juicy J Blue Dream & Lean 2 Mixtape

Juicy J, an indestructible rap party monster with more than two decades in the game, is better at making hardass head-busting ignorant rap than virtually anyone in the world, and he has been ever since the early Three 6 Mafia days. Today, Juicy released his new mixtape Blue Dream & Lean 2, the sequel to… More »

The Week In Pop’s Top 50 Pop Songs Of 2014

Two weeks ago we looked at the year's biggest pop songs; now let's run down the best ones. There will be a lot of overlap, of course, partly because sometimes great songs get popular and partly because sometimes popular songs that initially strike you as insufferable end up wearing you down through sheer persistence.

Rick Ross – “Nickel Rock” (Feat. Lil Boosie) & “Elvis Presley Blvd. (Remix)”

Rick Ross apparently still intends to release his new album Hood Billionaire before this month is over, and his new track "Nickel Rock" is a crack-dealing anthem that unites him with the Baton Rouge energy-bomb Lil Boosie. The song is decent enough, but Boosie just murders his verse, as he's murdered every verse he's done… More »

Juicy J – “All I Need” (Feat. K Camp) & “Trash”

This morning, Juicy J took to Twitter ("Wake yo ass up!") to prepare fans for two new singles he dropped shortly afterward: "All I Need" (feat. K Champ) and "Trash." The Academy Award winner, as per usual, stays true to his explicit tendencies on both tracks, spitting salacious raps over dirty trap beats. I… More »

Project Pat – “Imma Get Me Sum” (Feat. Rick Ross & Juicy J)

Rick Ross got the Memphis knucklehead-rap legend and longtime Three 6 Mafia affiliate Project Pat to show up on "Elvis Presley Blvd.," his recent street single. And now Ross has repaid the favor, contributing a verse to "Imma Get Me Sum," the first single from Pat's forthcoming Cheez N Dope 3 mixtape. Pat's brother Juicy… More »

A$AP Rocky – “Multiply” Video (Feat. Juicy J)

A$AP Rocky debuted his new single "Multiply" tonight, along with a video for it. It's the first solo track we've heard from Flacko since his debut album last year, LONG.LIVE.A$AP, which made him and the A$AP crew into certifiable rap stars. He debuted this song at Coachella earlier this year. It would make sense… More »

Juicy J – “Ice” (Feat. Future & A$AP Ferg) Video

Yesterday, we heard "Ice," the new conspicuous-consumption anthem from Three 6 Mafia veteran Juicy J. It has a beat from Mike Will Made-It and verses from Future and A$AP Ferg, and it's kind of a banger. Now, it's got a video, too. In the clip, we see all three rappers, along with Mike Will,… More »

Juicy J – “Ice” (Feat. Future & A$AP Ferg)

The improbably commercial resurgence of veteran Memphis drunk-rap overlord Juicy J is one of the great feel-good stories in the last few years of rap music. And Juicy doesn't look like he's slowing down anytime soon. Juicy's got a new album called Pure THC: The Hustle Continues, and first single "Low," with Nicki Minaj… More »

Juicy J – “Low” (Feat. Nicki Minaj, Lil Bibby & Young Thug) Video

Juicy J's new single "Low," which has on-fire verses from Nicki Minaj and Lil Bibby and a lovably slurry Young Thug on the hook, is one of the most dizzily fun rap singles in recent memory. It deserved a video that reflects its energy, but that's not what it got. Instead, director BennyMore »

The 5 Best Songs Of The Week

Here's a first -- the three best songs this week all had one common denominator: Nicki Minaj. It was the week of "Anaconda," of course, but Nicki also jumped in on tracks by Beyoncé and Juicy J, and she pretty much ran the damn table. So songs 1 - 3 are covered in one essay-length… More »

Juicy J – “Low” (Feat. Nicki Minaj, Lil Bibby, & Young Thug)

The Juicy J renaissance continues! The veteran Three 6 Mafia hardhead is something resembling a pop star in 2014, which is almost too weird to even think about. And now he's lined up three of the best rappers working -- in the mainstream, the mixtape underground, and whatever you call the crossover area between the… More »

Well Someone Had To Record The New Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Theme

If you're old enough, you may well remember paying actual money for the soundtrack album from the 1990 Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie, possibly on cassette, possibly at a K-Mart. You may even remember what a jam MC Hammer's "This Is What We Do" was. (Just speaking hypothetically.) That lost era, when movies would include… More »

Juicy J – “Scholarship” (Feat. A$AP Rocky) Video

Last year, Juicy J promised to give away a twerking scholarship, and then he gave a girl a $50,000 scholarship for non-twerking reasons. Today, he's made a video for "Scholarship," a song about paying strippers' tuition money. It's a theme for him! The song features A$AP Rocky, and it comes from last year's Stay TrippyMore »

Things we learned about Jack Antonoff -- Fun. guitarist, former Steel Train ringleader, Lena Dunham boyfriend, and, lately, Bleachers mastermind -- in Vulture's great profile last week: He lived with his parents in New Jersey until age 28, when Fun.'s "We Are Young" made them superstars. His Fun. bandmates lived there for a while… More »
