"I'm gettin' money ballin'/But never played sports/I'm so hot, in the winter/I can wear shorts…"
—Juicy J weighs in on the great shorts debate. Having found his low-tech rhyme style (which often doesn't much rhyme at all) particularly at home with the thwomping, orchestral Lex Luger sound that has taken over the southern side of the genre over the past year, the 35-year-old Three 6 Mafia rapper is on a hot streak. He signed with Wiz Khalifa's Taylor Gang Records in December, and declared himself the game's "No. 1 Get-High Rapper." And while there's lots of good stuff on his latest mixtape, Blue Dream and Lean, what everybody should really be listening to, over and over and over again, is the song he recently recorded with the electro-leaning producer A-Trak and Detroit's Danny Brown.
Whoohoo! Man, I love that beat! That beat is so cold, in the summer, it can wear a down parka. It's so cold, in fact, that it gives me the chills like some vintage Ice-T.
