Last night, Juicy J’s ‘Never Sober’ tour made a stop at the Upstate Concert Hall. Juicy wasted no time and asked the sold-out crowd where he could find the closest and “most ratchet” strip club. As the audience started chanting “Nite Moves,” Mr. J took a second out from his set to bring up ladies from the audience to take selfies with him, while managing to criticize every Android user attempting to snap an Instagram-worthy photo.

Juicy J is a great performer. Last night reminded me that I am familiar with more of his catalog than I had thought. With over 20 years in music, being a founding member of Three 6 Mafia, and establishing his solo career since 2009, saying that Juicy J is comfortable on stage is an understatement.

Juicy J was supported by Project Pat (his older brother) and Travi$ Scott (known for his production work with Kanye West and for signing with T.I.’s Grand Hustle Imprint). We arrived in time to catch Travi$ Scott perform several tracks, including his hit single with T.I., “Upper Echelon.”

Even though the show was at capacity, standing in the audience wasn’t overwhelming, as people packed in close for Juicy J to take the stage. Once he finally came on, he started his set off with “Stop It” off his newest album “Stay Trippy”. The girls in front of me started throwing fake 100 dollar bills once Juicy J began “Bandz A Make Her Dance”. It was hilarious watching people pick up the money and using their phone flashlights to reveal that the money was fake.

Juicy went through his lengthy list of bangers quickly, performing snippets of each in quick succession. Highlights included “Zip and A Double Cup,” “Geeked Up Off Them Bars,” “Scholarship,” “All I Blow is Loud,” “Show Out,” “One of Those Nights” (shouting out the Weeknd) and Three 6 Mafia’s “Stay Fly” and “Sippin On Some Syrup.”

It was definitely an enjoyable Sunday evening. Packed with great people-watching and one of my favorite varieties of rap; the filthy and ignorant kind.
