Three 6 Mafia wild man Juicy J has already dropped two mixtapes this year: Lit In Ceylon and #MUSTBENICE. The latter dropped less than two weeks ago, but he’s already set to follow it up with his forthcoming studio full-length Rubba Band Business: The Album later this fall.
An early taste of the album comes in the woozy, menacing, melodic “Ballin” featuring Kanye West. J comes with some signature outlandish rhymes featuring some far-out similes and braggadocio. Litmus test: “Onstar, I’m on another planet/ I just joined the Fortune 500/ And I’m in the boardroom in pajamas.” Ye’ takes on simple Auto-Tune hook duties, repeating “And I’m ballin” as J plays off it with hoop metaphors. It seems basic, but the energy is vibrant with Juicy switching flows for rapidfire wordplay, and West coming in with an easy, arrogant tone. Listen below along with the lead single “No English” featuring Travis Scott.
Rubba Band Business: The Album doesn’t have an exact release date yet, but it’s expected later this fall.
