It feels like the hype for Juicy J has softened a bit, at least if we’re comparing to the “Bandz A Make Her Dance” Juicy J era. Still, Juicy J is lowkey killing it, and his output and consistency haven’t faltered. His Highly Intoxicated mixtape brought us back to the good ol’ mixtape days when you could actually download them for free (!?), holding us over with a wealth of Juicy J bangers while we waited for Rubba Band Business.
Rubba Band Business is finally out today, delivering a highly polished Juicy J sound. On “Too Many” Juicy connects with TGOD affiliate Wiz Khalifa (one of his two appearances on the album) and Florida native Denzel Curry. Perhaps Denzel is repaying the favour from Juicy J’s appearance on his “Ultimate” remix — but we’re also hoping this won’t be the last time we hear these two seemingly-different rappers work together, because it’s a dope pairing, both rappers bringing high-energy flows. Imagine a Denzel Curry x Juicy J joint album??? In today’s rap landscape, anything is possible — it would be the perfect blend of ignant and conscious.
