Three 6 Mafia’s Juicy J shared an odd moment with his 653,000-plus Twitter followers after purchasing the wrong Kendrick Lamar studio album from iTunes this week.
Trying to show support for Lamar’s new good kid, m.A.A.d city LP, Juicy accidentially made the wrong purchase.
Known for being perpetually turnt up, Juicy J let his “influence” get the best of him last night. You see, he was looking to purchase Kendrick Lamar’s new album, good kid, m.A.A.d. city, last night when it hit iTunes. But here’s what happened… Five minutes and hundreds of RTs/comments later, the Memphis MC realized what had happened and was quick to fix his mistake. He also admitted why he, you know, copped the wrong LP. (Complex)
Pittsburgh rapper Mac Miller later reacted to Juicy’s lapsed moment of clarity.
“juicy copping the wrong kendrick album by accident is one of the greatest things to ever happen to internet culture.,” Miller tweeted October 22nd. (Mac Miller’s Twitter)
Lamar’s new album has even caught the attention of Young Money’s Drake.
“Congratulations to Kendrick. Incredible body of work. Honored to be a part of it.” (Drake’s Twitter)
After months of anticipation, Kendrick’s official studio release finally hit store shelves this week.
On his new offering, Lamar’s rap cadences are finely in sync with the stellar production by Pharrell, Tha Bizness, Hit-Boy, Just Blaze and others. The album is an open book of soulful stories that are intertwined through entertaining and thought-provoking skits, with Lamar telling several compelling moments of his upbringing in Compton, the gritty city southeast of downtown Los Angeles. Lamar recalls when he was engulfed in a persuasive environment, running the streets with disobedient friends on “The Art of Peer Pressure.” That song seamlessly connects with “Money Trees,” where 25-year-old Lamar and guest Jay Rock eloquently rap in detail about a young man’s mentality to commit home invasions with the hope of becoming a rap star.
