Who is Juicy J?
Jordan Michael Houston III, known better by his professional name Juicy J, was born in Memphis, Tennessee USA, on 5 April 1975 – his zodiac sign is Aries, and he holds American nationality. He was one of the founding members of the hip hop group Three 6 Mafia, and their 2005 single “It’s Hard out Here for a Pimp” won an Oscar for Best Original Song, after it was made the theme song of the drama movie “Hustle & Flow”.
Juicy J was raised in Memphis by his father who was a preacher, and his mother who was a housewife; he hasn’t spoken of having any siblings, and is thus believed to be an only child.
Even though his father was a preacher, Juicy J has revealed that he was still supportive of his career, even though he wasn’t really a fan of his ‘turnt up’ music. Juicy J became interested in rap music at a very early age, and was a teenager when he started reading books about the music industry, marketing, royalties and publishing. His idol at that time was the record producer and songwriter Al Bell, who was a co-owner of Stax Records for a short period. Juicy J studied at North Side High School, and was 17 years old when he wrote his song “Slob on My Knob”.
The hip hop group Three 6 Mafia was founded in 1991 by Juicy J, DJ Paul, Crunchy Black, Koopsta Knicca, Gangsta Boo and Lord Infamous – Juicy J and DJ Paul then launched their own record label, Prophet Entertainment. Three years later, the two left the label to Nick ‘Scarfo’ Jackson, and founded Hypnotize Minds. The group’s debut album was released in 1995, entitled “Mystic Stylez”, and they have since released eight other albums.
Juicy J launched his solo career on 2 July 2002, with the release of his debut album “Chronicles of the Juice Man”, and on 16 June 2009 his second album “Hustle Till I Die”, after which he distanced himself from Three 6 Mafia, and focused on his solo career.
He often collaborated with the famous American rapper Wiz Khalifa in the following years, and on 23 August 2013, he released his third album “Stay Trippy”; its lead single “Bandz a Make Her Dance” peaked at #29 on the US Billboard Hot 100 Chart.
His fourth studio album “Rubba Band Business” was released on 8 December 2017, and was followed by his fifth album “The Hustle Continues” on 27 November 2020.
Juicy J has won four of the 12 awards for which he’s been nominated. He won the above mentioned Oscar, a 2012 HipHopDX Year-end Award for Comeback of the Year, a 2014 MTV Europe Music Award for Best Video and a 2014 American Music Award for Single of the Year, for his and Katy Perry’s song “Dark Horse”.
