The Hustle Continues | Juicy J
The Hustle Continues
The Hustle Continues is the fifth solo studio album by American rapper and record producer Juicy J. It was released on November 27, 2020 via Trippy Music/eOne. It features guest appearances from Logic, 2 Chainz, ASAP Rocky, Conway the Machine, Jay Rock, Key Glock, Lil Baby, Megan Thee Stallion, NLE Choppa, Project Pat, Ty Dolla Sign, Wiz Khalifa and Young Dolph. -Wikipedia
While the production and overall soundscape of this release is decent, as with Busta Rhymes’ latest release, a lack of cohesion, reliance on collaborators for marketing and subpar lyricism results in a product that is musically sound, but has little meaningful grounding.
Ratings Game Music
Juicy J’s sound has heavily influenced the music that you hear today. With that being said, I feel like The Hustle Continues is a sixteen-track reminder that Juicy still has a lot left in the tank.
Legends Will Never Die
Overall, I thought The Hustle Continues was pretty solid. I think Juicy kinda overdid it on the features but at the same time, he shows listener that he still has it all these years later on the mic & on the boards.
On his fifth solo album, the Memphis legend invites guests like Jay Rock and Megan Thee Stallion, splitting the difference between coasting and staying fly.
This is a timely reminder of Three-6 Mafia's enormous influence across their genre, though the rapper's boasts of weed, women and wealth can grow tiring.
This album, his fifth proper full-length solo release and first of the 2020s, is true to its title, offering slight variations on the sly baller themes and prowling sound for which he's known.
