Juice Wrld Drops Racks at Unique Hype and Highlights New Music

Published

on

Between concerts and interminable recording sessions, rappers are busy folk, and sometimes, if you want to catch up with them, you’ve got to do so on their terms. That’s a task Motion XI took on for the first episode of Spend Some Time, a new franchise where we literally spend some time doing whatever the artist has in mind. Up first is Juice Wrld, who linked up with Motion XI at Chinatown’s Unique Hype Collection over the summer.

Rocking a Hawaiian style Louis Vuitton top with a navy blue Supreme T-Shirt tucked underneath, Juice looks right at home as he makes his way through the doors of Unique Hype Collection, a famed Supreme resale store rappers visit regularly to restock their drip. For this particular trip, Juice, an Interscope Records artist who rose to stardom when his 2017 single “Lucid Dreams” caught fire this past spring, dropped multiple racks as he gleefully purchased some Supreme gear.

Before jumping into his shopping spree—which ultimately cost him $6,006.58—the Chicago rapper kicked back and gave Motion XI a rundown of both his fashion and musical influences and more. First off, Juice cites Tyler, The Creator and Odd Future as the folks who inspired his love of Supreme.

“I remember seeing [Supreme] early on, just me being obsessed with just skating and stuff like that,” Juice tells Motion XI. “Around like sixth [or] seventh grade, that’s when [Tyler, the Creator], Odd Future started blowing up,” he continues. “That had a big influence, too, ’cause [Tyler, the Creator] used to always wear ‘Preme. Tyler, that’s another one of my influences, like I [was] really, really, really, really listening to Odd Future like super heavy. They used to just mention ‘Preme a lot, so I just kinda educated myself more on it.”

Juice was also impressed with the clique’s rebellious vibes. “They were different,” the 19-year-old explains. “There were a couple of people that took the same approach as them before, like, Big L, maybe, or like, Public Enemy, almost, with the whole ‘fuck the police’ thing. It was just different.”

Juice is currently riding momentum of “Lucid Dreams,” which is currently holding down a No. 3 spot in the Billboard Hot 100 chart. The track was originally released on his 2017 project, 999, but it picked up serious stream as he dropped off his Goodbye & Good Riddance album this past May.

The chart-climbing rapper is doing big things, but he’s in no rush to put out a ton of new tracks. Juice Wrld says he’s sitting on 120 songs and been in the studio with Ski Mask The Slump God, an artist he’s looking to make joint mixtape with. What’s the hold up?

“We locked in a couple times, we just gotta—we both doing shit. He getting money, touring,” Juice shares. “[I’m] doing the same shit, so I guess whenever shit is kinda at peace, we can link up, lock in a couple more times. See what happens.”

Speaking a bit more on Ski—the two call each other “evil twins”—Juice offers nothing but praise. “He’s most definitely one of the most talented people out right now,” Juice says. “Ain’t nobody spitting flows like him. And, the shit that he says is different, too. He won’t drop like, a regular punchline, he’ll say some whole other shit and bring it back on your ass.”

Elsewhere in the interview, Juice Wrld lists his five biggest rap influences, his knack for freestyling and more. See what Juice has to say for yourself by watching the first episode of Spend Some Time above.

D33J And Lil Yacthy Connect On "Out Of Sight"
D33J has recently dropped his highly anticipated  INFINITY 33 mixtape. The project is full of impressive collaborations, including this emotive single, “Out Of Sight,” featuring Atlanta rapper Lil Yachty. 

Speaking to Pigeons and Planes, D33J revealed, “My music is always quite emotional, but it’s not conveyed in these clear-cut narratives. There are not all these lyrics guiding you, and even when I do sing, a lot of the times the vocals are more like guttural, impulsive first take things that get looped and processed.” The aforementioned is evident in the Lil Yachty assisted song which sees the two musicians exploring the theme of lost love.  

Quotable Lyrics

Where have you been, where have you been 
Not in my life lately
Where have you been, out of sight 
Where have you been, where have you been 
Not in my life lately
Where have you been, you’ve been out of sight

Jaden Smith Advises Fans To "Play This On A Mountain At Sunset"
Jaden Smith recently dropped off a new project titled The Sunset Tapes: A Cool Tape Story exactly one year after his debut album SYRE. The new music is a part of his Cool Tape series through which Jaden first explored his early hip-hop artistry.

The Cool Tape Story is 11 tracks long, with various titles alluding to his past releases such as “FALLEN Part 2” and “SYRE In Abbey Road.”

“Play This On A Mountain At Sunset” is arguably the perfect accompaniment to a moment of reflection or philosophizing. Speaking to Nylon, Jaden revealed, I’m a learning philosopher, you know? So I get to learn new things every day…For me, personally, I am growing to have a well-rounded education on everything, because you’re never gonna know everything. So I feel like yes, I am a modern-day philosopher in training.”

City Girls Have No Time For A "Broke Boy"
In an interview with Rolling Stone, Yung Miami of the City Girls shared some advice that she received from her mother at a young age. “My mom always told me ‘Don’t talk to a man who can’t do nothing for you. If you talkin’ to a man, make him do something for you.” She went on to further cement the importance of ambition and hustle in a potential partner saying, ” I don’t wanna talk to a broke boy. Period.”

In this single from their album Girl Code, the City Girls deliver a lively, horn-infused hype anthem. The song is further complemented by the duo’s witty lyrics.

Quotable Lyrics

If you a broke boy, stay the f*ck out my way
These n***s be lyin’ on they d*ck with a f*ckin’ straight face
Boy, I am not your b*tch, so what the f*ck is you sayin’?
You just a n**** lyin’ on your d*ck with a f*ckin’ straight face
