Juicy J at Trees on Friday, November 29
On Friday night, Juicy J got the sold-out crowd at Trees as 'turnt up' as you'd expect fans of the invigorated former Three 6 Mafia MC to be. The venue was packed at 8 p.m., despite Juicy J not even performing until 12:30. Security was tight, but that didn't prevent a few scuffles from breaking out. Still, the crowd still showed love for most of the night.
With his dreads bouncing, Boome put on an especially impressive performance. His set consisted mostly of songs from his newest album, Space Jamz 2, and lasted about forty minutes. Wearing jeans and a "Mess with Texas" tank top (which he soon threw into the crowd), Boome played his own hits, like "Jimy Hendrix" and "Ride My Bike to the Moon," as well as "Juicy." During his set, he popped open a few bottles of champagne and splashed it on the crowd and threw dollar bills into the crowd.
Hyro da Hero and "Juicy J's prodigy" Marcus Cruz, a Texas native, also impressed the crowd with their sets.
But the real fun started after midnight, when the curtains opened and Memphis' Juicy J shouted, "Before we start the show, does anybody want something to drink?!" He then started pouring champagne into the mouths of some fans and splashing it into the crowd, which he did throughout the show.
Wearing all black except for his shiny chains and watch, the Academy Award winner played hits from throughout his almost twenty-year career, but the songs were largely from his latest album, Stay Trippy.
Juicy J, born Jordan Houston, got the crowd especially hyped early on, when he spit his verse off B.o.B's "We Still in This Bitch." At one point, he stood with one foot on stage and his other foot on the front railing, getting close with the crowd.
