Juicy J Teases Joint Album With Wiz Khalifa
| LAST UPDATE 02/09/2022
Juicy J has announced that he's been working on a joint album with fellow artists Wiz Khalifa and Pi'erre Bourne. Luckily for us, it's not just one album, but instead, it's two separate ones. Here's everything you need to know.
It doesn't look like the 46-year-old plans on retiring his music career any time soon. In the past 10 years, he's released four albums, nine mixtapes, and numerous hit singles, including a feature on Katy Perry's Dark Horse, which charted on Billboard Hot 100 as No. 1. After a busy and successful decade, Juicy J continues to bless our ears. On February 4th, he officially announced on his Instagram that he and Wiz Khalifa have collaborated on Stoner's Night. The album name was inspired by the duo's past joint mixtape, Rude Awakening. The 2016 album was completely produced by 808 Mafia's TM88.
The two have already dropped two singles from the tracklist, including Pop That Trunk. They've also released Backseat, which happens to feature another Memphis rapper, Project Pat - Juicy J's older brother. Based on these songs, we have no doubt this upcoming album will scale the charts. But that's not all. Juicy J is also dropping a second record with Pi'erre Bourne! Yep. The producer is best known for producing smash hits like Playboi Carti's Magnolia and 6ix9ine's GUMMO. Fans were thrilled when Juicy J posted a video of him and the 28-year old producer working in the studio, hinting at a collab. And the news was solidified when Bourne also shared a snippet to his Twitter, which he captioned, "Culture."
Continuously working with young and trendy hip hop stars has clearly benefited Juicy J's career. In his past, his most recent album release, The Hustle Continues, saw many well-known artists popping in on various tracks. The album, which dropped in November 2020, included Lil Baby, Pooh Shiesty, NLE Choppa, Rico Nasty, Kaash Paige, and many others. During an interview with MTV News, he explained, "I've been doing this for a long time…, and I'm gonna keep going." Juicy J continued, "My kids' kids will be listening to Juicy J. I'm gonna be like Tony Bennett around here: 80 years old and still getting Grammys and ****. This is what I love to do, and I'm a genius at it - so give me my flowers, man."
