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, Memphi… 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… 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,… 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 »

The Week In Pop: Stereogum’s New Weekly Pop Column

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… 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… 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 »

NXNE 2014 Initial Lineup

With music festival season over, we're now getting some initial lineup announcements for next year. The massive NXNE Festival in Toronto has announced its initial lineup for 2014 and it's looking good. It covers music, film, and other media between 6/13-6/22, but there's an emphasis on music in the last few days starting on the… More »

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… 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 »

The 5 Best Songs Of The Week

This week's 5 Best Songs is perhaps the most diverse entry in the franchise's young history. It ranges from polished pop to acoustic melancholia, post-punk wails to cloud rap ephemera. Check it out below. More »

Play Okkervil River & Juicy J’s Online Video Games

Two vastly different artists with new albums coming out soon have chosen similar ways to promote those albums: Online video games! Literate Texan rockers Okkervil River will soon release The Silver Gymnasium, frontman Will Sheff's musical exploration of the New Hampsire town where he grew up. And now you can explore the town, too, thank… More »

The 5 Best Videos Of The Week

Once again, the best piece of music-related video wasn't a music video this week; it was this haunting performance from Neil Young and Willie Nelson, and we can thank CMT, of all possible cable networks, for its existence. (Jim James on Letterman was also pretty great.) Meanwhile, weirdo giants of the music-video field… More »

Juicy J – “One Of Those Nights” (Feat. The Weeknd) Video

The Weeknd makes mournfully beautiful music about being overly self-medicated and having too much sex. Juicy J makes triumphantly thunderous music about being overly self-medicated and having too much sex. The two make a surprisingly seamless pair on Juicy's single "One Of Those Nights." And in its violent new video, Juicy and Abel Tesfaye… More »

Stereogum Monthly Mix: April 2013

After experimenting with three formats for the Monthly Mix -- MP3 zip, Spotify playlist, Soundcloud set, etc. -- in March we finally came upon a solution that pleased everyone: all of them. And so, for you, here is the month's music, whittled down to its very best, via each of the aforementioned mediums, limited… More »

Juicy J – “Ain’t No Coming Down”

With "Ain't No Coming Down," Juicy J shows he has a mastery of the restrained party anthem. There's nothing particularly bombastic about his track "Bands A Make Her Dance," but it will turn a party into a mob scene the second the muted bass flows into the room. "Coming Down" was produced by Childish Major,… More »

Passion Pit – “Constant Conversations (Juicy J Remix)”

This combination makes no sense at all, which is why it makes all the sense in the world: Unhinged Three 6 Mafia goofball rap libertine Juicy J has remixed Passion Pit's sensitive white-soul jam "Constant Conversations." Sadly, he has not smeared the track with Hypnotize Minds horror-movie keyboards, but his new verse on the… More »

A-Trak – “Piss Test Remix” Video (Feat. Juicy J, Jim Jones, Flatbush Zombies, El-P & Flosstradamus)

In assembling the remix for his awesomely ignorant Juicy J/Danny Brown drug-rap throwdown "Piss Test," dance-rap baron A-Trak recruited a deep, wide, and fascinating lineup of collaborators. In director Shomi Patwary's new video for the remix, almost all of them show up, looking blitzed out of their minds on one substance or… More »
