As a founding member of Three 6 Mafia, it is a marvel that Juicy J’s real fame and recognition has come as a solo artist. Juicy J has stayed true to his syncopal, rhythmic flow while being unafraid to answer the public’s call for more electronic beats. Playing alongside older brother and Mafia co-founder Project Pat, Juicy J’s show will likely be a satisfying mix of old and new, all while maintaining that same simple yet engaging, rapid-fire tone J has so fluidly mastered. Trippy as always, Juicy J has managed to master the fusion-genre of hip-hop with trap and pop and keeps both his rap game and his double cup filled to the brim.
