Check out rap star Big Sean and and Juicy J cover The Source as part of the magazine’s 16th annual Power 30 issue.
The magazine will be on newsstands nationwide on September 3rd.
On his public persona: “I don’t know, man. I don’t know how the public looks at me…But then I really don’t care anymore, too much, what people say because it’s kind of like I’m trying to prove a point to myself more than anything.”
On Hall of Fame delay: “Even though I got signed to Def Jam, they were like, ‘you got to give us a reason to put your album out.’ I had to give them incentive to put my album out over a Rick Ross album, or a Rihanna album. I had to show them that I could do something for ‘em.”
On how far he’s come: “I’m still young but, you know, it’s crazy going from the level I went from to the level I was at. Say you found somebody freestyling on the street right now. And they’re a kid. Then, in a matter of a few years, he’s on songs with Jay-Z. That’s a long way. It takes a lot of improving and getting better at making things happen.”
Meanwhile, Juicy J has been ruling the rap game since the late ’90s when he was a member of Three 6 Mafia. Now a solo artist, the Memphis native proves that longevity is the key to success in the music business.
