The Southern Dynasty - 2010
Released just before the Rubba Band Business series took off, The Southern Dynasty was a transition tape for Juicy. On one hand, you have tracks like "Old Triple Six" where he says "feed a nigga body to the Mississippi River," and on the other, he's paving the way for his Taylor Gang days with Wiz Khalifa on "In My Car." This is where the persona of Ratchet Juicy begins to take shape.
On the Khalifa-assisted track, Juicy makes the Clintons sound like the most ratchet first family around, referencing Monica Lewinsky and rapping, "Got hoes like Hillary and smoke like Bill." The raunch continues on the ensuing track "Top Notch," most noticeably due to a hook that's just a loop of Pimp C's "Top notch hoes get the most not the lesser" line from "Int'l Players Anthem." Saying things like "I fuck with cocaine snorters" and "all I do is lay pipe," Juicy sounds less menacing than usual, and more down for a party.
The track "Thin Line," which appears towards the end of the tape, has Juicy telling the story of a woman who could be described as both "ratchet" and "gangster," as she gives the best head and smokes the best kush: "She be on the block, she selling’ drugs/She be in the club, hanging’ with them thugs.” Not quite the sexually-focused lyrical content Juicy would later dole out with every line, but he was getting there.
