Juicy J featuring Dougie F and PPR Panda

Track 29
Dec 31, 9:00pm, Doors at 8:00pm
Juicy J is a hip hop recording artist who makes uncompromised music that is relatable and chart hitting – he joins a very small, elite group of artists who have earned both an Academy Award and a Billboard Hot 100 No.1.  Juicy J’s rise to fame began in 1991 as one of the original members of platinum selling Memphis rap group Three 6 Mafia. The group spawned an eclectic series of hits over their 20 year span including “Stay Fly,” “Sippin On Some Sizzurp,” “Lolli Lolli” and the Academy Award Winning “Hard Out Here For A Pimp.” 2002 marked Juicy’s first foray into a solo career with the release of Chronicles of The Juice Man. Since his debut, Juicy has released countless mixtapes – including the most recent release with Wiz Khalifa titled TGOD Mafia Presents: Rude Awakening – and worked on an array of successful collaborations. His work with pop royalty Katy Perry for the track “Dark Horse” saw Juicy J being awarded once again; receiving a Grammy nomination and winning both an American Music Award and MTV Video Music Award.
