A Personal Event
A few months after getting married in Vegas, Juicy J stopped by Jimmy Kimmel to talk music and current events. Although, what he ended up talking about was a new title to add to his repertoire. “Today, I found out my wife is 12 weeks pregnant,” the artist shared. “I’m having a baby girl. Yes, man. Happiest day of my life.”
Months later, the daddy-to-be is much closer to meeting his baby girl.
With a small, close-knit baby shower, Juicy and his wife Regina R. Perera celebrated their soon-to-be-born baby daughter at their home in Calabasas surrounded by close friends and family. “Earned It” rapper Belly and “Gang S–t Only” rapper Chevy Woods attended the event alongside Juicy’s parents and his high school friend Eddie.
Lila Hood Blue Violinist, who performed Stevie Wonder melodies for the shower, posted about the event afterwards. “You guys cut a rug dancing while I was playing,” she said. “And I’m so happy the baby was kicking to the music!”
The musician wished the expecting couple “blessings and lullabies” after saying that it was an honor to play for them.
Rubba Band Music
In other news… Juicy recently released his fourth studio album, Rubba Band Business. With features from Wiz Khalifa, A$AP Rocky, Denzel Curry, Offset, Travis Scott, Tory Lanez, Belly, Ty Dolla $ign, and more, the highly anticipated LP did not disappoint. Though it has only been out less than a week, it is expected to do well on the Billboard charts.
“So whatever you like with Three 6 Mafia, it’s just a mixture of old Three 6 Mafia with Lex Luger beats, Metro Boomin beats, with Murda beatz,” Juicy said during an interview with XXL. “It’s a mixture of all that, you know what I’m saying, and boom, that’s what it is. It’s like a mixture of the old and the new.”
To limit the negativity on the 13-track album, Juicy also plans to release a mixtape — his third one this year — filled with tracks specialized for his haters. Scheduled to drop on Dec. 15, the mixtape, titled Shut the F–k Up, is solely produced by the Suicideboys.
Mourning a Loss
Though the Memphis rapper has been busy with his pregnant wife and his new music, he still had time to mourn the loss of Lil Peep. “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 during an interview with XXL. “We all can learn from situations like this.”
Luckily, before the New York rapper’s death, him and Juicy got to do a song together. Though the record was never released, Juicy called the track “a party-like record” before explaining why the duo never got the chance to really meet and record together.
“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,” he said. “You know, we didn’t even have a name for it, man.”
