Juicy J Breaks Down His 25 Most Essential Songs

Three 6 Mafia “Da Summa” (1995)

Producer: DJ Paul & Juicy J

Album: Mystic Stylez

Label: Prophet

Juicy J: “It’s the first song Three-6 Mafia had on the radio. They didn't want to play our music on the radio. And we gave them that one, they said, like, that one was talking about the summer, it's laid back, it was groovy. So they were like, Cool, we'll play this one.

“It was a struggle, man, but shout out to Andre Cash Money and Stan Bell. Those were the two main DJs that was on different radio stations that started supporting local music. There was some more guys too, a lot of DJs man... the mix-show guys, the personalities. But as far as on the radio stations, those two were really the number one guys in the city, but they was actually helping out the local music.”
