Juicy J just dropped off a new mixtape, Highly Intoxicated, after a brief teasing period. He'd been giving fans glimpses at upcoming collaborations, all of which were highly anticipated by his cult-like following, before he finally confirmed the title of a new mixtape at the beginning of September, and just last week, confirmed it'd be dropping today. The final offering looks a bit different from the versions he'd previously teased, but in terms of collaborations, you're not missing any, as it's littered with appearances from a who's who of who is currently 'hot' right now. Although we're sure that old Three 6 Mafia fans would have loved to see Juicy J do a full project with production from DJ Paul, Juicy, always with his hand on the pulse, decided to go the more modern route by enlisting SuicideBoys for the majority of the beats. This keeps uniformity in his dark, Three 6-inspired sound, while ensuring it's also as fresh as humanely possible. We recently had DJ Paul by the office for an interview, and we had to ask his take on the resurgence of Three 6 Mafia sounds and inspirations from the newest generation of artists -- so stay tuned for that.
In the meantime, here's a sure highlight off Highly Intoxicated. SuicideBoys feature on the song alongside A$AP Rocky, while production for this banger comes from three sources, Suicideboys, DJ Chase and Canadian producer DJ Smoky666. The collaboration is defined by buried piano keys, and a chopped-and-screwed sample that encourages Southern girls to do the "freaky dance," but we have a feeling that girls across clubs worldwide will be able to get freaky to this tumultuous record. Suicideboys close out the song with a hard-hitting verse that is not to be missed, even citing some old Three 6 lyrics, if the homage wasn't clear enough.
Take a listen and let us know what you think of the collab -- amped for more Suicideboys x Juicy J in the future? I know we are.
From the south, she got weed for sale
Fix your weave and nails
Out the house, she got lean for sale
Pink codeine and syrup
In a drought, don't fuck for free for real
But for me it's still
On the house, I get it cheap for real
Without a retail
