Support the independent voice of Miami and help keep the future of New Times free.

He's one of only a handful of men who can casually ask a woman to "suck a nigga's dick or something" without sounding like much of a chauvinist. "Bad bitches... [give] him head like lice" on a regular basis, and he's "been rich since the '90s."

But Juicy J's success didn't happen overnight.

The Three 6 Mafia cofounder and Oscar-winning music producer earned his keep by maintaining a steady grind and avoiding what so many of his hip-hop brethren have not: bad business decisions.

"I'm a hustler; I consider myself a boss," Juicy J said in a recent interview with Vice. "I figure like, nobody could do it the way I could do it. I pay attention to everything that goes on in my account; I know everything."

J is currently on tour promoting his latest project, Stay Trippy, a solo record due out this summer featuring collaborations with some of the biggest names in music. (Wiz Khalifa, 2 Chainz, and The Weeknd, among others, have been confirmed as featured artists.)

And despite his two decades in the industry, Juicy J recently told Billboard that he's just as excited for Still Trippy as he's been about each of the records he's work on. Only this time, it's different.

"I feel like it's brand-new for me. I'm calling all my own shots. My singles, anything I drop, it's all me. It's my decision."

Juicy J's Stay Trippy Tour. With A$AP Ferg. Saturday, May 4. Villa 221, 221 NE 17th St., Miami. The show starts at 6 p.m., and tickets cost $14.50 via ticketweb.com. Call 305-416-5280, or visit villa221.com.
