Juicy J has sold millions of records and even won an Oscar as a member of legendary hip hop group Three 6 Mafia. So, when Wiz Khalifa announced that he had signed Juicy J to his label Taylor Gang Records in late 2011 it was a shock to many longtime fans. What they didn’t expect was for Juicy J to completely reinvent himself and become one of hip hop's biggest stars less than two years later.
Leaving the darker, almost horrorcore, sound that built Three 6's legacy behind, Juicy has focused on making more club influenced sounds for his upcoming album Stay Trippy. Last year, the release of his single, "Bandz A Make Her Dance," catapulted Juicy J to solo superstar status and the hype for his new album was at a fever pitch. 2013 has seen Juicy release two more huge singles, "Show Out" featuring Big Sean & Young Jeezy and "One Of Those Nights" featuring The Weeknd. On August 27th, Stay Trippy will finally be released and, judging from the track listing, Juicy J has a few more potential monster singles on deck.
Tune into Tha Fixx Radio today at 12pm, 6pm, and 12am CDT to hear Juicy J's huge new track "Aint No Coming Down Remix" featuring T.I., and be on the lookout for Stay Trippy hitting stores August 27th.
