Today In Hip-Hop: Juicy J Celebrates 37th Birthday

On this day, April 5th, in hip-hop history…


1975: Juicy J celebrates his 37th birthday today. The Memphis, TN legend and younger brother of rapper Project Pat began his hip-hop career in 1991 when he formed the Backyard Possee – now known as Three 6 Mafia – with DJ Paul, Koopsta Knicca and Lord Infamous. Over the years, Three 6 has released  nine albums, with a 10th announced for sometime in the near future. The group also won an Academy Award in 2006 for their musical contribution to the film Hustle and Flow “It’s Hard Out Here For a Pimp.”

In 2011, Juicy J announced that he had signed a solo record deal with Wiz Khalifa’s Taylor Gang imprint and is currently working on his third solo release Stay Trippy. Last year, Juicy charted a Gold-certified single “Bandz a Make Her Dance,” which featured Lil Wayne and 2 Chainz.
