Executive producer Wiz Khalifa confirms duo, says Juicy's solo debut is "hood."
It's official, Juicy J's teaming up with Justin Timberlake for another chopped and smooth record. This time the Three 6 Mafia member and JT will appear on Juicy's debut solo effort, Stay Trippy, according to the album's executive producer, Wiz Khalifa.
Wiz, who signed Juicy to his Taylor Gang label, spilled the beans during an interview with DJ Whoo Kid. "He's got songs with Justin Timberlake, The Weeknd, but it's a real hood album too. You know Juicy's projects, he's breaking his back to give that old sound mixed with the new."
Given the success of last year's strip club anthem and the album's lead single, "Bandz a Make Her Dance," ears are perked up for the Oscar winner. And his years in the game have helped him and Wiz cull a well-rounded collection of who's who in music — Nicki Minaj, Chris Brown, Pimp C and Yelawolf are among those also expected to make the final track listing. Young Jeezy and Big Sean are already locked in with guest appearances on the second single, "Show Out," released earlier this year.
Behind the boards, more track work is expected from "Bandz..." producer Mike Will Made It, and other beats are being supplied by Hit-Boy, Lex Luger and Juicy himself, who, most recently, has three tracks on Lil Wayne's I Am Not a Human Being II.
Juicy and Justin last worked together on the Timbaland-produced "Chop Me Up," off Timberlake's Futuresex/Lovesounds release.
