Taylor Gang/Kemosabe Records/Columbia Records
This is not Juicy J’s first time around the rodeo. The Academy Award–that isn’t a typo, by the way–winner is poised to release his first official LP as a solo artist under the close guidance of his young label head Wiz Khalifa and the steady direction of Columbia Records. Though the July 2nd release date is still considered tentative as of press time, we’d even prefer it to drop sooner. With “Bands Make Her Dance” and “Show Out” burning up the airwaves, Sir J of the Juice is poised to remind folks that this isn’t a comeback, for he never left. Not to mention, we at The Source have heard the album in its entirety. Make room in your iTunes, seratos and backyards. Its going to be crazy. Watch his most recent video, “Show Out”.
