Status Ain’t Hood: Future’s New Album Is Fucking Incredible

There is so much happening in rap right now, so much to talk about. There’s last night’s still-reverberating Twitterpocalypse. There’s the whole new network of who hates who, those little now-public feuds working like spiderweb cracks in rap’s windshield. There’s the absolutely stunning, uplifting Chance The Rapper performance I witnessed on Sunday night in Chicago,… More »

Beach Goth 4 Lineup

The fourth installment of the Growlers’ annual Beach Goth festival will go down 10/24-25 at the Observatory Grounds in Orange County, California, and its lineup is certainly worth observing. Besides the Growlers themselves, the impressive array of performers includes Grimes, Julian Casablancas + The Voidz, Die Antwoord, Warpaint, DIIV, Fidlar, Camera Obscura, Juicy J, Ghost,… More »

T-Pain – “Make That Shit Work” (Feat. Juicy J)

Ten years after “I’m ‘N Luv (Wit A Stripper),” T-Pain is having a new moment. At the end of last year, he recorded an Auto-Tune-free Tiny Desk Concert for NPR, unnecessarily proving to the world yet again that (gasp!) he’s really talented and can really sing! It went viral, and T-Pain is now capitalizing o… More »

Juicy J – “Tryna Fuck” (Feat. Drake & Ty Dolla $ign)

For a while last year, the legendary Memphis rap hardhead libertine Juicy J was cranking out great singles like “Low” (with Nicki Minaj, Lil Bibby, and Young Thug) and “Ice” (with Future and A$AP Ferg), and he still couldn’t get a release date for his album Pure THC: The Hustle Continues. That’s more an indictment… More »

Juicy J – “Already” (Feat. Rae Sremmurd) Video

The kids in Rae Sremmurd weren’t born when Juicy J started his indestructible career, but somehow it makes perfect sense to hear them on a song together in 2015. Rae Sremmurd guest on “Already,” an ode to being faded and horny from Juicy’s solid Blue Dream & Lean 2 mixtape. And in the video, the… More »

Sweet Valley – “Big Blue” (Feat. Juicy J & Soulja Boy)

When I see the words “Sweet Valley” I immediately think of Elizabeth and Jessica Wakefield, the twin blond bombshells who ruled the Sweet Valley High pre-teen book series. Oddly enough, the hazy, atmospheric production style that this Sweet Valley creates is not too far off from a teen-dream bedroom vibe after all — that is,… More »

Q&A: Chilly Gonzales On Chambers, Poptimism, And Life As A Musical Genius

Chilly Gonzales has lived so many musical lives it’s hard to keep them straight. Born Jason Beck, he’s a classically trained pianist, composer, and self-proclaimed musical genius (hey, somebody has to say it, right?) who has co-authored musicals; pursued the alt-rock path as the frontman of Son; set Guinness records for piano-playing; tried his hand… More »

A$AP Rocky’s New Album Coming “Seriously Soon,” Features FKA Twigs, Lykke Li, Clams Casino

Like virtually everyone else in music, A$AP Rocky made the trip down to Austin this year to perform at a corporate-sponsored show (Samsung in his case). And while he was there, he talked to Billboard, telling the magazine that his follow-up to 2013’s Long.Live.A$AP is finished and being mastered. He didn’t want to give away… More »

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 it… 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. (“Bang… More »

Benny Blanco and Ben Ash of Two Inch Punch, the production duo known as BenZel, were deeply involved in some of the best pop music of the year including Jessie Ware’s Tough Love and Ryn Weaver’s Promises EP.

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. In “All… 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 that… 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, shrouded… 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 and… More »
