Tonight Juicy J Returns to NYC, Still Never Sober, at Terminal 5


Tonight, Tuesday July 22nd, Juicy J makes a triumphant return to NYC to close out an extended leg of his highly successful Never Sober Tour. The former Three 6 Mafia general will headline the venerable Terminal 5 with Graft and Vinny Chase. Tickets still available!

Juicy J is currently working on a follow up, The Hustle Continues, to last year’s Stay Trippy LP. Juicy has made it a habit to rework summer smashes, including “No Flex Zone” and “Hot”. It’s safe to say Juicy J definitely knows what’s hot in the streets. In a recent interview with Time Out New York, Juicy J stated “Whatever I do, I’m gonna make it classic.” The Memphis hip hop icon solidified his mainstream status earlier this year with his massive hit with pop queen Katy Perry, “Dark Horse”.

Watch Juicy J’s new video for “Scholarship” featuring A$AP Rocky below:

If you’ve seen Juicy live before, you know his shows are packed wall to wall with crazy turnt up energy. If you haven’t yet, we recommend you cop those tickets asap.

Bobby Shmurda Signs to Epic Records, Performs at House Party NYC


It’s safe to say that the Shmoney Dance has gone from internet meme sensation to an explosive real life movement for Brooklyn rapper, Bobby Shmurda. The rising New York star appeared at Webster Hall’s House Party, the city’s biggest hip-hop party, last night to celebrate his signing to Epic Records. The energy was through the roof as Shmurda performed his viral hits “Hot”, and “Shmoney Dance”, alongside fellow GS9 brother Rowdy Rebel in the Grand Ballroom with Just Blaze and DJ Soul.

Just in the last week, Bobby Shmurda has been shouted out by none other than King of BK Jay Z, brought onstage by Raekwon during the Brooklyn Hip Hop Festival, and even made an appearance on Power 105’s The Breakfast Club. This has all culminated in Shmurda signing to Epic Records last night, just hours before his House Party appearance. Watch the show below, houts to Real Talk NY for photo and video.
