See the days-old baby
Juicy J is the proud father of a newborn baby girl. Kamai Houston was born on Friday, Feb. 2, 2018, and Juicy just couldn’t wait to share the news with the world. In addition to shouting out an announcement on Twitter, he posted a photo of the swaddled Kamai to celebrate.
“Baby Girl what a blessing you are,” he wrote on Instagram along with a photo of himself holding the infant.
He also tagged Kamai’s Instagram account, created by the proud parents while they were awaiting her arrival. So far that account only has one post, a maternity shot of Juicy and his wife Regina Perera.
It’s unlikely that the newborn will slow Juice down in the least. The notorious workhorse rapper pretty much always has something cooking, and we doubt that’s going to stop just because he’s a dad now.
He’s dropped two mixtapes in as many months, the SuicideBoys-featuring ShutDaF*ckUp and the traditional album Rubba Band Business. And J has more than his own albums up his sleeve. He’s working on new releases with Rae Sremmurd and has his own stable of talent that he’s trying to cultivate.
“I’m working with Wiz on a bunch of stuff. Taylor Gang got a bunch of stuff coming out, Mo’ Faces got a bunch of stuff coming out,” he told XXL. “I’m still signing writers. I got this new writer I just signed, his name K. Tucker. He’s a ladies man. You gotta hear some of his music. He’s up-and-coming. I signed him to my publishing company. I got new producers I’m signing. I’m always looking for new talent.”

That eye for talent might have been what made him work with Lil Peep. The rapper ― who tragically passed away late last year ― was still on-the-rise when Juicy hooked up with him for a record that was never released.
“I did a song with Lil Peep,” he revealed in that same XXL interview. “I never released it though—a song that I did with him last year. His music is dope. His music kinda reminds of, like, almost like Nirvana a little bit, you know what I’m saying? Kinda like rap, but still got a little rock with it.”
He added that he regretted never being able to meet Peep in person.
“I live in L.A. and I think he was back and forth and we just never got the chance to just link up in the studio. We was supposed to get a chance to link up at the studio soon, you know, but it never happened,” J revealed.
Juicy J was also one of the many rappers to reach out and discuss the perils of addiction following Peep’s death.
“It was terrible, man. I don’t really know him personally, but I know a lot of people that know him and I understand about Xanax addictions and stuff like that,” he said. “I’ve gone through that same stuff myself. That stuff, it’s no joke. It’s nothing to play around with, so it’s terrible, man.”
