With Juicy J’s Rubba Band Business: The Album set to release in the near future, 2017 is shaping up to be a huge year for the Memphis-hailing Academy Award winner.
While we might have to wait a little while for the eagerly anticipated album, it doesn’t mean we can’t get our Juicy J fix in the meantime. Luckily for all, Juicy will be embarking on the MERRY JANE presented Rubba Band Business: The Tour. He hits the road on January 26 with special guests Belly and Project Pat.
Cop some tickets now if you don’t want to miss out.
We also asked Juicy a few questions about his career, the sticky icky and music in general, so after bumping his selections, scroll down and read what he had to say.
MERRY JANE: What is your most memorable smoking experience?
Juicy J: It was my first time performing with Snoop Dogg. We smoked out of one of the Trippy Sticks. It was the first time Snoop smoked out of a vape.
If you were a boxer, what song would you come out to?
If you were going to go out guns blazing, what song would you choose to do it to?
“No Heart” – 21 Savage & Metro Boomin.
Who is your guilty pleasure artist?
Which song that you've released means the most to you?
I have to say “Hard Out Here for a Pimp.” Winning an Academy Award was a special moment.
Who has been your favorite artist to work with? What is your dream collaboration?
I have worked with some incredible artists, so I can’t pick just one. Working with Wiz is always special. My dream collaboration is working with Eminem. He’s a legend.
What's in your near future? Any projects we may not know about that you are currently working on?
My next project Rubba Band Business: The Album is coming next month on Columbia/Kemosabe. I’ve put years of labor into this thing. It’s a special album. I’m also launching my new label, Mo’Faces entertainment. I’ve been working with some super talented artists over the last couple of months. 2017 is going to a be a big year for Juicy J fans.
Can you tell us how your Green Suicide strain came to be?
I consider myself a weed aficionado so it was only right that I made this happen. I wanted to build a perfect strain for my tastes and met the folks at Crown Genetics. We tested a ton of flavors until we got it perfect.
Which stops on the Rubba Band Business: The Tour are you most excited about and why?
Returning Home to Memphis, it’s where it all started. It’s where my family is. This is going to be a special tour. Bringing my biggest production yet on the road and I’m playing all my new shit.
