Southern rapper OJ Da Juiceman opened up about being booed off a New York City stage earlier this week and said he had never been forced to prematurely end a performance in the past.
According to OJ, he did not perform at B.B. King Blues Club with intentions to display his lyricism.
"Yeah, it's all good, I'm an artist and I'ma keep it going, I'm down like four flat tires," OJ told radio personality Angela Yee. "That right there was a little stepping hurdle for me but eh, we'll overcome the most....What I done been through by these people in the past few days...nah, if you actually look at all my shows on YouTube, I never actually had a boo like never...I love New York...If you ain't one hundred, then f*ck you cuz...Actually, I went up there with good intentions, [the vibe] was off after the first two records...Everybody is entitled to they own swag. I guess there wasn't no swag in the club, it was because of the fact Raekwon was there...Big up to the bloggers, they keep a n*gga motivated...I never came in the game saying I was the best lyricist. I came in the game with traptivity...If you know about traptivity, it's really not based on vocabulary. It's based on life experiences on coming up in the street and dealing with drug-related activities to pay your bills." (Team Yee)
The performance took place Wednesday (October 21) night.
OJ Da Juiceman -- a protege of the Atlanta rap star Gucci Mane -- was getting booed at B.B. King Blues Club & Grill in Midtown Manhattan. It didn't take much to elicit the response: OJ's set lasted three songs, not even ten minutes. Somewhere down south, he probably would have been paid several thousand dollars for the exact same performance. (The New York Times)
Hip-Hop personality Miss Info reportedly vouched for OJ and asked the crowd to resist their taunts.
"What happened to mutual respect?" asked HOT97's Miss Info from the stage, as she attempted to quiet the emphatic chorus of boos that had just chased OJ from the stage. "F*ck that," yelled some dude. "Wu-Tang!" Raekwon hit the stage sometime around 2 a.m., only to commence a set more psychodrama than rap show. (Village Voice)
The rapper was previously called out by fellow Atlanta rapper Young Jeezy on the song "24, 23."
"They say the club is off the chain," Jeezy raps in the song. "I'm on some Louis sh*t today then some Gucci Mane. This n*gga still on my d*ck, they like some groupies, man. Can't keep they lips closed, they worse than coochie man. And that fruity lookin' stupid like some Coogi man. Let you trick me off these streets, you must be stupid man...Tell him this ain't what he want, not to bust no, but between me and you, I think the boy slow....They say the club is off the chain, straight shots to the heads, them some Juice Man...Ask the real n*ggas in the city who got the juice man. This n*gga talkin' about the work but what he do man. Y'all know these n*ggas really clowns and I'm the truth man." ("24, 23")
