Uncle Juicy J hasn’t gone anywhere, and isn’t planning to anytime soon. The Hip-Hop pioneer has apparently been working on an official follow-up to last year’s Rubba Band Business, and has revealed a presumed new track from his forthcoming project titled “Neighbor,” a collaboration with Travis Scott. The song was premiered via Billboard, where the Juiceman explained how its creation went down during a quick Q&A:
Travis called me up and reached out about hearing some new beats when he was working on Astroworld. We vibed out in the studio. On my way out, after we had been in the studio for three hours, I was like, “Yo, Travis, let me get a record for my new album.” He went into his files and pulled up “Neighbor.”
It was like a long verse, but I thought it was hard as fuck. I told him to play it again. The beat was already done and he had everything on there. It didn’t really have a format to it originally. When I got to the studio the next day, I took the track and chopped it up. I took a piece and made a hook. The part where he was rapping I put first. Then I added a verse on it and it was magic from there. I had to put it in a sequence.
In that same interview, he also revealed that he cooked up over 50 other songs with $uicideBoy$, Tay Keith, Kevin Gates and Lil Skies….I know I’m excited to hear those cuts when they surface.
Enjoy “Neighbor” below.
