As Red Bull Sound Select’s 30 Days in L.A. winds down, Memphis rapper Juicy J will be using this one-off concert to showcase material from his soon-to-be-released fourth solo effort, Pure THC: The Hustle Continues. The founding member of the Academy Award–winning Memphis collective Three 6 Mafia released “Low” back in August, which surprised even the most ardent of fans. Featuring Nicki Minaj, Lil Bibby and Young Thug, the single confirmed the rapper’s gradual embrace of the mainstream. In recent years, the streetwise rapper has started popping up on Top 40 rap and pop tracks, most notably Katy Perry’s “Prism.” Nonetheless, fewer rappers have the ability to delicately balance street cred with growing pop sensibilities quite like the 39-year-old can.
