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 Benny Boom gave… More »

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 »

Juicy J, Wiz Khalifa, Ty Dolla $ign – “Shell Shocked” (Feat. Kill The Noise & Madsonik) Video

Next month 2007 MTV Movie Award winner Michael Bay revives the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles franchise and last week we heard the movie’s theme “Shell Shocked,” a rap song by Juicy J, Wiz Khalifa, and Ty Dolla $ign about nunchucks, pizza, and living in an abandoned subway station. Megan Fox and Whoopi Goldberg act i… 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 »

The Week In Pop: Bleachers, The Solo Project Of Fun.’s Jack Antonoff, Is Really Good

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 too,… More »

Young Scooter – “Disfunction” (Feat. Future, Juicy J & Young Thug)

The Atlanta rapper Young Scooter, who released his Street Lottery 2 mixtape earlier this year, specializes in a moody, foggy, melodic take on street-rap. And on his new track “Disfunction,” he brings three of the South’s most important rappers into his zoned-out orbit. The track has contributions from warbling Atlanta Auto-Tune astronaut Future, Memphis head-buster… More »

The Week In Pop: Miley Brings The Monogenre To MTV Unplugged

You don’t have to be a legit rock star to get an MTV Unplugged these days. In recent years the show has hosted quite a few household names (Paramore, Alicia Keys, Adele, Mumford & Sons, Katy Perry, 30 Seconds To Mars, a very-plugged-in Lil Wayne). Some of the world’s most popular rock bands of the… More »

Grammys 2014: GIFs & Videos

The Grammys aren’t about Grammys — the vast majority of them aren’t even given out during the televised ceremony. (UPDATE: Here’s who won, though.) No, the Grammys are about the performances, and this year is looking pretty stacked. Here we’ll be posting videos of the live sets including Daft Punk (with Pharrell, Nile Rodgers, and… More »

The Week In Pop: Why So Serious, Jennifer Nettles?

My first exposure to Sugarland was the video for “Stuck Like Glue,” a 2010 single that injected a shot of unexpected quirk to the heavily codified country radio landscape. I hadn’t paid close attention to mainstream country since I was a kid, but somehow “Stuck Like Glue” made its way into my browser and captured… More »

Welcome to The Week In Pop, Stereogum’s new weekly pop column. I’ll be here every Thursday with a look at mainstream pop music via essays, track reviews, chart updates, and more. The phrase “Stereogum’s weekly pop column” probably raises some questions, so let’s get to them right away:… More »

Ty Dolla $ign – “Ratchet In My Benz” (Feat. Juicy J) Video

When Ty Dolla $ign, arguably America’s ratchetest R&B singer, joins forces with Juicy J, arguably America’s ratchetest rapper, we get a song called “Ratchet In My Benz,” one where Ty$ croons “I’ma just pull it out / You’ll know what to do” like he’s making some sort of sweet romantic promise. The gleefully offensive, weirdly… More »

The Year In Molly

MDMA aka ecstasy aka Molly has a long, storied musical history and wizened drug rappers Danny Brown and Juicy J have been spearheading a new Molly movement since the dawn of the decade. But ever since spring 2012 — around the time Madonna named her album MDNA and Kanye rapped “Somethin’ ’bout Mary, she gone… More »

Future – “Sh!t (Remix)” (Feat. Drake & Juicy J)

There’s a decent chance that the Future solo single “Sh!t” is the single hardest track that Future released all year, and this is the year he sang the “Bugatti” hook. A new remix of the track ups the stakes even further, incorporating a bit of Three 6 Mafia’s “Tear Da Club Up” and adding i… More »

The 40 Best Rap Albums Of 2013

Last year, there was one album — Kendrick Lamar’s Good Kid, m.A.A.d. City — that united virtually the entire rap-listening public in adoration. This year, no such luck. Many heard my #1 pick of the year (and you can probably already guess what it is) as the work of a sonic visionary, and plenty more… More »

The massive NXNE Festival in Toronto has announced its initial lineup for 2014 and it’s looking good.

Stereogum’s 50 Favorite Songs Of 2013

Determining the year’s best albums is, admittedly, a subjective pursuit. But even more than an albums roundup, a list of songs is an intensely personal way to sum up a year in music. It is a process of appreciating the trees in a forest so sprawling it can never be mapped out entirely, celebrating the… More »

Drake – “Worst Behavior” Video

Drake’s last video, “Hold On, We’re Going Home,” was a wonderfully silly short film featuring guest stars like A$AP Rocky. The one before that, “Started From The Bottom,” was also a narrative interspersed with skits. And the latest, a 10-minute clip for “Worst Behavior,” is just as gleefully goofy. More »
