Miss Info: You’re rubbing your eyes like…What tha what?! How and why is Memphis skripper rapper Juicy J sippin’ on kale smoothies with hipster girl heartthrob band Passion Pit? First off, I love bizarro combos like this…and I’m betting it was the guys from Passion Pit who handpicked Juicy for a verse. When I sat down with group members Nate Donmoyer and Jeff Apruzzese over the summer for the #Uncapped tour, they were fully stanning for 2 Chainz, who was also on the bill. (I added the Passion Pit x 2Chainz clip below) Between Passion Pit and Miley Cyrus, is Juicy J the most eclectic rapper out?
Andy B: After finding himself enveloped by the dreamy vocals of The Weeknd on “One of Those Nights,” Juicy J explores left field even further by teaming up with indie pop band Passion Pit for a remix of their Gossamer slow jam, “Constant Conversations.” The usually turnt up Taylor Gang rapper sounds surprisingly at ease over the soft-as-a-petal instrumental. The novelty of Juicy rapping, “and her pu**y hit hard like Ron Artest” over this beat will never wear off. Go in with open ears below.
