[With new artists hitting the rap scene daily, SOHH correspondent Lalaa Shep gives you one-on-one exclusives with hip-hop acts you need to know right now in “The Progress Report.” Today, Lalaa talks to rap veteran OJ Da Juiceman.]
In a recent interview with Lalaa Shepard & The Progress Report, one of trap music’s creators, OJ Da Juiceman opens up about his past and details intimate stories about his life and music career from having his sister help him write music, coping with diabetes, discovering nearly every successful producer such as Lex Lugar, Sonny Digital, Metro Boomin, Zaytoven, Mike Will Made It, and several others.
OJ speaks on creating a new lingo and setting standards in rap music and how things are more acceptable today than they were when he was coming up.
OJ details how his innate nature of being a hustler made him a successful independent artist enabling him to release over 40 mixtape and 2 albums.
OJ even shares how getting robbed out of millions of dollars changed how he moved in the music industry and how no one believed in his biggest hit to date, “Make The Trap Say Aye”. Despite taking over 2 years to break, he never stopped believing in himself.
“Slow money is better than no money”.
OJ even stated that he and Gucci Mane will work soon when the time is right and wants upcoming artists to learn the music business so they can keep their profits.
