Juicy J is continually aggressive throughout his music and is the king of rude rap. It is not a new style, but there is something about Juicy J’s delivery that makes his music stand out more than the competition. With the production from $UICIDEBOY$, Highly Intoxicated quickly became a rising star in my music library. It was while I was thinking about my site, I realized that I do not review enough ugly music that is crushing, but uplifting in personal gain. The type of music that makes money a motivation for a slight second and is irresistible to move to.
The thunder crashes give way to the the opening track simply called, “Intro” leads Juicy J into the first of what would become eighteen total tracks in a saga of punchy bass anthems and rough cut entertainment. “This ain’t a mixtape, bitch this a rich tape. Nah it ain’t my birthday but I got big cake… Do I really got them bands? (Yeah Hoe, Yeah Hoe),” is exactly what Juicy J delivers within the first minutes of Highly Intoxicated. It is ugly, aggressive, but is also able to be chanted in a room full of crowded people, turning the dance floor into a mosh pit fairly quickly.
The production is simply the best portion of the tracks present and makes the splashes of Juicy J’s verses a topping to the sweet cake that comes from the instrumentation. It attacks, spazzes, and eventually goes out with a bang.
