Juicy J / A$AP Ferg @ Iriving Plaza, 5/14/2013
Memphis hip hop favorite and Thee 6 Mafia member Juicy J played his second show in two days at Irving Plaza on Tuesday (5/14), part of the "Stay Trippy" tour with A$AP Ferg. Pictures from the show are in this post.
As mentioned, Juicy J performed a show the day prior, an RSVP-only affair as part of a FADER issue launch party that saw him perform three songs before calling it a night (pictures). No word as to how many trippy sticks, xanny bars or purple drank was consumed during his tenure in the city.
Juicy J is part of this year's Rock the Bells tour, though no word on whether he'll be part of the rotating line-up when it hits NYC.
In other news, A$AP Ferg released a video for the "Work" remix featuring A$AP Rocky, French Montana, Trinidad James & Schoolboy Q. Check that out, along with more pics from Irving Plaza, below.
Happy 10th anniversary to Rock the Bells, who have announced their initial, rotating 2013 lineup featuring hosts Peter Rosenberg & MURS 3:16, as well as names like Bone Thugs N Harmony, Danny Brown, Black Hippy (who just played NYC), Common, E40 & Too Short, Earl Sweatshirt (ditto), Flatbush Zombies, Juicy J (who played a Fader show on Monday and Irving Plaza last night), Rakim, Wu-Tang Clan (who play Summer Jam soon), Tyler the Creator (who just announced an NYC show as part of Odd Future), Eazy E, Ol Dirty Bastard and more. Confused? Yes, I did just say Eazy E and Ol Dirty Bastard, both of which will be "virtual performances" as part of the travelling festival. AllHipHop reports:
Ol Dirty Bastard and Eazy-E's spirits will return to the stage at Rock The Bells this year, AllHipHop has learned.So far only four dates exist for Rock the Bells. They're all listed below. Two of them are on the East Coast and one is in the NYC area at Meadowlands Racetrack in Rutherford, NJ on October 4-5. Tickets go on presale Thursday (10/16) at noon, and regular sale on Saturday.
The pair of Hip-Hop legends will have holograms performing this year at the 10-year anniversary of the rap festival.
Eazy-E will perform virtually with Bone Thugs-In-Harmony and ODB will rock with Wu Tang. Organizers said Eazy never blessed the Rock The Bells stage and ODB only did once.
Also, the "holograms" are approved by Eazy-E's wife Tomica Wright and Ol Dirty's mother, Cherry Jones.
Tupac's Coachella appearance inspired the new virtual performances at Rock The Bells, organizers admitted.
Initial lineup (at least 15 more artists TBA), dates and some video below.

Juicy J at 'Fader' launch party
Academy Award winner Juicy J (it still cracks me up to say that) made an appearance last night at 61 Gansevoort (5/13), a private party celebrating the launch of the latest issue of FADER. The event, which started around 8 PM featured the Three 6 Mafia member taking to the stage around 10 PM for his verse on "Show Out", followed by "A Zip and A Double Cup" and "Bandz A Make Her Dance" before thanking the crowd and leaving.
I know what you're thinking, 10 minutes (tops) of performance could not be any less exciting, especially considering the cramped quarters and the wait involved. But the experience of seeing the Juice-man (sans double-cup and trippy stick, alas) was less about the performance, and more about the crowd excitement; he could have read the ingredients off of a cereal box and the crowd would go nuts.
Juicy J teams with A$AP Ferg to play a sold-out Irving Plaza tonight. More pictures from the FADER party are below.

Three 6 Mafia rapper Juicy J is still kicking, and plans to release his third solo album, Stay Trippy, at some point this year. The album is set to feature last year's party hit, "Bandz A Make Her Dance," his recent chilled out single that he recorded with The Weeknd and Weeknd producer Illangelo, "One of Those Nights," and his other single from January, "Show Out," a collaboration with Big Sean, Young Jeezy, and producer Mike Will Made It, which was just given video treatment. You can watch that new video and stream the other two tracks below.
In support of the album, Juicy J will be heading out on a tour of the US and Canada from late April to early June, and he's taking A$AP Ferg out with him as support. The tour hits NYC on May 14 at Irving Plaza. Tickets for that show go on sale today (3/8) at 10 AM. The release date for Stay Trippy is still TBA but hopefully it will drop before he hits the road.
All tour dates are listed, along with the new video and those song streams, below...

Pitchfork just posted their much anticipated list of the top 100 tracks of 2012. The #1 slot went to... Grimes! Whether you thought the whole of her album Visions was good or not, it was hard to deny the charms of "Oblivion." (Having that great video didn't hurt either.) Do you think it deserved to top the list? If not then what song should've?

Chicago rapper King L (fka King Louie) hails from the same burgeoning Chicago scene that produced Chief Keef and Lil Reese (but so far he hasn't given us a reason to believe he might end up in jail) and though he might not have a party starter like "I Don't Like" under his belt, he does have some pretty promising singles out at the moment. The best of those, "Val Venis," which you can watch the video for below, at the very least has more lyrics than "I Don't Like," if not arguably better ones, and for better or for worse it's got enough gun shots in the beat to hearken back to the days when rap was scary. That single, and the recently released "My Hoes They Do Drugs" (feat. Juicy J and Pusha T), which you can also stream below, will both presumably end up on L's forthcoming official album (he's got a bunch of mixtapes), Dope & Shrimp (release date TBA).
Maybe you caught King L in NYC during CMJ when he played FADER Fort, where he brought out Katie Got Bandz for her first NYC appearance. He'll be making his way to NYC this month to open for Future and Ace Hood at Highline Ballroom on November 30 with Cash Out. Tickets for that show are on sale now. It's his only announced date at the moment.

Georgia rapper Future released his official debut album, Pluto, on Epic Records last month, following a series of mixtapes, including 2012's Astronaut Status. Pluto features guest spots from R. Kelly, T.I., Drake, Snoop Dogg, Juicy J, and others. Check out videos of "Tony Montana" [Ft. Drake], "Magic (Remix)" [Ft. T.I.], and "Same Damn Time," below.
Future will be embarking on a two month long tour of the US in support of the album, which kicks off later this month with support from Pusha T. The tour hits NYC on June 4 at Irving Plaza. Tickets go on sale today, Friday (5/11) at 10 AM.
