Juicy J has been gearing up to drop a new project for a while now, but with the release of his new Travis Scott-featuring single he's ramping up the hype for the currently untitled release. Appearing with Zane Lowe on Beats 1, the Memphis legend and Three 6 Mafia founding member debuted the bombastic "Neighbor."
Featuring a catchy hook and lengthy verse from La Flame, J told Lowe the song actually came together while working on material for Travis' Astroworld. "Man it's always amazing when I work with Travis Scott," he explained. "We was working on his album Astroworld, I brought a bunch of beats over he was going through some of my beats and then just you know kicking shit."
After the two worked for a while, J was on his way out when he mentioned he wanted to get Trav on his album, too. After he asked, Travis pulled up a long, unformatted record for him. "I took it to the studio, and when I got the studio I just made one part a hook and the other part sounded more like a verse," he says of what eventually became "Neighbor." "That was it, man, the song is magic."
"Neighbor" is our latest taste of Juicy J's next full-length, which he says is "already done." There's no date yet, but he's been working on a lot of material with New Orleans duo Suicideboys, who he's already released a number of tracks with.
