With Juicy J and Wiz Khalifa’s collaborative history, the new signing to Taylor Gang doesn’t come as a surprise. While in New York City for his Mac & Devin Go To High School tour, Wiz caught up with MTV News and spoke on bringing Juicy J to the Taylor Gang team:
“Well, I’ve always been a huge fan of Juicy J and Three 6 Mafia and what they brought to the game,” he said. “As far as their music, as far as their consistency, as far as just if you’re in that mood and you know what you wanna hear, they brought it and I respected that. And they brought it for years, since I was young.”
He continued on, speaking about growing up on Three 6 Mafia’s music. “I remember when ‘Tear da Club Up’ first came out and I remember when ‘Stay Fly’ came out, and those are two huge songs from the same group of people who never fell off or lost it at all. And I really look up to that and respect that.”
When it came to making the deal with Juicy J and Wiz official, there was no question about it.
“It was like, ‘Man we might as well bridge the gap and takeover,’ because he’s gonna be here forever and I’m gonna be here forever,” Wiz boasted.
