So when the Three 6 Mafia member decided to give XXXTentacion and Lil Pump their props for recreating and adding to his sound, it's a pretty big deal.
"I like both of those guys' music. I got actually a song with XXXTentacion. I did a song with him I put on my mixtape. Yeah, man. I love it, man," said Juicy J in an interview with Rolling Stone. "They keep the music alive. They keep people interested in the music. You know? Like I say, man, all praises due to the man upstairs, man. Who's to say your music is gonna be around for 20 something years? I can walk in the club and rap the same stuff I've been rapping for 20 years, and the club will go crazy, like it never left...It's crazy, man." (To be fair, the interviewer only asked about these two rappers.) Juicy J also linked up with Lil Pump for "Trap Jumpin'."
But while these rappers create the sound on purpose, it wasn't intentional for Juicy. Instead, the sound came from him having cheap equipment.
"I recorded it on a crazy microphone," said Juicy about creating the song "Slob on my Knob, that's resurfaced thanks to recent hits like A$AP Ferg's "Plain Jane," G Eazy and Cardi B's "No Limit," and Future's "King's Dead." "A cheap microphone, probably cost 20 bucks. Maybe somebody gave it to me or something."
And there you have it.
