Juicy J Gets ‘Low’ With Nicki Minaj, Lil Bibby & Young Thug On New Single
Looking to stoke the fire for his upcoming album, ‘Pure THC: The Hustle Continues,’ Juicy J lets loose the star-studded first single, ‘Low,’ featuring some of rap’s most talked-about names right now.
With Dr. Luke (his Kemosabe Records boss) and Cirkut (co-producer of Katy Perry’s ‘Dark Horse’) providing the dark and sparse production, which fluctuates with marching drum-powered climaxes, the Memphis veteran recruits Nicki Minaj, Lil Bibby and Young Thug on his latest mission for club domination.
Sir Juice of the J kicks things off with a call-and-repeat hook that will no doubt be lodged in your brain for the rest of the summer. “My beat low / My bass low / I ride low / She go low,” he chants before delivering the first verse, which is as boastful and hyperbolic as you’d expect.
Ms. Minaj grabs the mic next to flex her double-time flow, which further solidifies her status as the Queen of Hip-Hop (as if that needs any more clarification). Then, it’s up to Chicago’s Lil Bibby (who’s rumored to be joining Juicy J at Dr. Luke’s Kemosabe Records) to close out the banger with those baritone bars of his, which only makes the bellowing bass hit even harder.
We all saw the damage the first single (‘Bandz A Make Her Dance’) off Juicy J’s last album (‘Stay Trippy’) did, so it’ll be interesting to see if ‘Low’ can leave the same impact. Listen to the song below and download it over on iTunes.
