Juicy is the father of so many rappers' styles that he could bow out gracefully right now and still get maximum respect. But like the song says, "Juicy J cain't." That's why "Bands A Make Her Dance" is still a strip-club staple a full year after its release. After winning an Oscar with Three Six Mafia, after starring in an MTV reality show, after turning 38, after doing all the things that would normally signal the end of a rapper's relevance, the fact that Juicy J is still making essential, undeniable, uncompromising rap music at this stage of his career is nothing short of phenomenal. Expect more of the same from his album Stay Trippy—hard-hitting and outrageously raw club records about sex and drugs and all the ratchet things we've always loved about Juicy. One of the stand-out cuts features Wiz Khalifa and Chris Brown (rapping!) Say no to that? We cain't. —Rob Kenner
