Juicy J Reveals "100% Juice" Mixtape Tracklist
While we patiently await the arrival of Juicy J's upcoming album, The Hustle Continues, he's decided to drop his second mixtape of the year, and as usual, it looks pretty stacked. The majority of the production comes ut of the 808 Mafia camp, with Tarentino, TM-88 (pre-departure we assume), and Southside all collaborating on beats (so look out for some Kill Bill sirens). Elsewhere there are some more big names from ATL, including Lex Luger, Sonny Digital, Metro Boomin, and Mike WiLL.

The Best Food-Related Rap Lyrics Of All Time
Rap has an long-running obsession with food. Even "Rapper's Delight' couldn't resist speaking about grub, and when Wonder Mike dropped these words on the eighth verse of the pinnacle track, it opened up a lane that hasn't shut down since... "I mean the macaroni's soggy, the peas are mushed, and the chicken tastes like wood" While this plate doesn't sound entirely appetizing, sometimes rappers describe five-star culinary experiences. Like when Biggie introduced us to his favorite breakfast: "a t-bone steak, cheese, eggs, and Welch's grape."
