Smoker's Club Tour with Juicy JJuicy JJuicy J (born Jordan Michael Houston in 1975) is one of the producers of Memphis rap group Three 6 Mafia and collective Hypnotize Minds. Both he and DJ Paul rap and produce music for the group. He is the younger brother of rapper Project Pat. Juicy J and DJ Paul won an Oscar for Best Song Its Hard Out Here For A Pimp in Craig Brewers Hustle & Flow. He says his name came from a Juicy Fruit wrapper in his room while trying to think of a name.Together with production partner DJ Paul, Juicy J played an important role in the Souths rise to prominence within the once East and West Coast dominated rap industry. Behind the duos leadership, Three 6 Mafia rose from an underground phenomenon in Memphis to a nationally recognized rap empire, spinning off numerous solo albums for the collectives many members in the mid- to late 90s. Like his production partner, Juicy J specialized in dark, eerie tracks driven by bass-heavy beats and haunting sounds. He also raps as a member of Three 6 Mafia. Moreover, Three 6 Mafia ventured into filmmaking with Choices: The Movie and Choices II: The Set-Up, a straight-to-video film starring most of the Three 6 Mafias collective, Hypnotize Minds. Juicy J (born Jordan Houston) and DJ Paul (Paul Beauregard) first came together at the dawn of the 90s, when they worked as DJs in the Memphis area. The two soon began producing their own tracks and invited numerous Memphis rappers to rap over the beats. They released the resulting tracks locally as Three 6 Mafia; years later these recordings would resurface as re-releases. In 1995, the loose collective Three 6 Mafia began to form and self-released its debut album, Mystic Stylez. The album became an underground success, and Three 6 Mafia, in turn, signed a distribution deal with Relativity for its Hypnotized Minds imprint. Throughout the late 90s, DJ Paul and Juicy J produced numerous albums a year for Hypnotized Minds and capitalized on the lucrative distribution deal. By the end of the decade, the two producers were at the helm of an empire, having extended their brand to alarming lengths, culminating with their commercial breakthrough album, When the Smoke Clears (2000), which debuted at number six on Billboards album chart.
