Jordan Houston, best known by his stage name Juicy J, is a hip hop recording artist and record producer from Memphis, TN. Preferring the title producer over rapper, Juicy J makes uncompromised music that is relatable and chart hitting – he joins a very small, elite group of artists who have earned both an Academy Award and a Billboard Hot 100 No.1. Juicy J’s rise to fame began in 1991 as one of the original members of platinum selling Memphis rap group Three 6 Mafia. The group spawned an eclectic series of hits over their 20 year span including “Stay Fly,” “Sippin On Some Sizzurp,” “Lolli Lolli” and the Academy Award Winning “Hard Out Here For A Pimp.” 2002 marked Juicy’s first foray into a solo career with the release of Chronicles of The Juice Man. Since his debut, Juicy has released countless mixtapes – including the most recent release with Wiz Khalifa titled TGOD Mafia Presents: Rude Awakening – and worked on an array of successful collaborations. His work with pop royalty Katy Perry for the track “Dark Horse” saw Juicy J being awarded once again; receiving a Grammy nomination and winning both an American Music Award and MTV Video Music Award. Pitchfork said it best when they recalled Juicy’s dedication to his craft; “Juicy J never sounds tired, never phones it in. He’s the consummate pro.” Rubba Band Business: The Album is only an extension of what is to come in the next year that will continue to set the veteran industry magnet ahead of the rest. Outside of his robust recording career, Juicy J is the owner of his own line of Cannabis, Green Suicide, as well as the new face of Colt 45. Juicy J is also a partner in Taylor Gang Entertainment—an entertainment management, record label and production company—alongside collaborator Wiz Khalifa, in which he serves as A&R.
