Juicy J, one of the rappers who's still killing it in his 30s, gathered a large crowd to Brooklyn’s Paper Box for last night's sold-out show. Fans spilled into the streets waiting for Juicy, while others were lucky enough to squeeze inside. “Juicy J is relevant now,” said one attendee.
The big turnout shouldn’t come as a surprise since Juicy has been consistently feeding the streets with his bangers about recreational drugs and strippers. Naturally, the music drew a very diverse and young crowd. Everyone looked ready to “get trippy” and Juicy delivered, but not immediately.
This concert proved that if you wait long enough, something good comes out of it. There were many hiccups throughout the night—fans getting too trippy for security to handle, cops showing up, performance delays, a very hot venue—but it only furthered the anticipation for his arrival. In between opening acts Johnny Nelson and Black Dave, fans hung out in the courtyard, where some shredded the half-pipe.
Juicy finally hit the stage at midnight and it was his mission to make the show as chaotic as possible. All the Blue Dream & Lean hits rang loud from the speakers—“Zip And A Double Cup,” Geeked Up On Them Bars,” “Get Higher,” “She Dancin’.” He reminded us of his Three 6 Mafia past with classic verses from “Slob On My Nob,” “Stay Fly,” and “Poppin’ My Collar.” He repped his new home Taylor Gang too with cuts from Wiz Khalifa’s Taylor Allderdice. Needless to say, Juicy’s energetic set caused a surge of mosh pits and shouts of “We Trippy Mane!”
