Juicy J Aint’ Gotta Say Shit September 13, 2013
Photo By Bryan Sheffield for Spin There about 10 tabs open on my browser filled with songs from artists who I’d like to write about. And here I am, about to devote our 83,432 post to Juicy J in the last year. I just spent my entire Labor Day weekend writing a 3,000 word Spin […]
Deen originated the Bombay Gin dance. I wasn’t planning to write anything about Stay Trippy due to my pre-existing bias in favor of Juicy J’s music. He’s my spirit animal, you see. There’s also the fact that I’m so overly pleased with the album that a review might begin to tread into uncomfortable and vaguely […]

Deen remains trippy. For those of you who’ve been paying attention, you’re aware that I’ve probably been listening to all things Freddie Gibbs. After all, he dropped 2 singles and a video in the last week or so. Oh and he decided to drop his album 3 weeks early once it leaked. But a few […]

As someone who values an intake of illicit substances far in excess of what a normal 30-something citizen should consume, Juicy J is an inspiration. He is approaching Hunter Thompson territory with his late-period incarnation. Granted, this might be more Songs of the Doomed than Hells Angels (or Mystic Stylez), but Juicy continues his hit […]
Deen is currently teaching a class on Copyright Law and early Juicy J cassette tapes at Rice University. Maybe I’m too beholden to conventional song structure, but I’m more than a little irritated that we don’t really hear Juicy J on what’s ostensibly his own single for the first TWO (2) minutes of a four […]

Almost a quarter century after their heyday, 2 Live Crew samples remain the best non-chemical party starters. File this track under: if you liked “Pop That” and “Bandz a Make Her Dance….” I like that Trina obviously recorded her verse before 2 Chainz was added to the song. I like idea of a strip club […]
MobbDeen: Dancing w/ Juicy J January 30, 2013
You say no to drugs, MobbDeen can’t. It’s a really clever move for Juicy J to shoot a video for this track approximately 15 months after he first released the track as a random loosie, then as part of his Blue Dream & Lean mixtape. After all, his buzz is about as big as it’s […]

“My phone started ringing and I picked it up….cash.” Juicy J: pure Horatio Alger, the Southern analogue to Eazy E — simultaneously creating a sub-genre but still all about that cash. This video tells the story of recording “Bandz A Make Her Dance” on a $100 microphone. A very inspiring song. A very inspiring story. […]
