Jordan Michael “Juicy J” Houston is a rapper, producer, and record label executive with a net worth of $21 million. Along with DJ Paul and the rest of the Three 6 Mafia, Juicy helped to bring southern hip-hop into the mainstream in the mid to late ’90s. After achieving major commercial success with the Mafia in 2000, Juicy launched his solo career, and now has three solo albums to his name.
Three 6 Mafia
Juicy co-founded the Three 6 Mafia in 2001 along with DJ Paul and Lord Infamous. The group’s membership has morphed over the years, as has their name. Originally called the Backyard Posse, the group later changed its name to Triple 6 Mafia and later settled on Three 6 Mafia. Some of the members of the loosely defined hip-hop collective have included Gangsta Boo, Koopsta Knicca, Crunchy Black, Al Kapone, La Chat, Lil Wyte, and Project Pat, Juicy’s older brother.
After landing several underground hits throughout the ’90s, the group hit it big with their 2000 album “When the Smoke Clears,” which became their commercial breakthrough album when it debuted at number six on the Billboard chart.
The group would go on to achieve even greater success in 2006 when they won an Academy Award for the song “It’s Hard out Here for a Pimp,” which was featured in the film “Hustle & Flow.”
As of 2014, the group’s worldwide album sales have surpassed the 5.5. million mark.
In 2002, Juicy released his self-produced solo debut, “Chronicles of the Juice Man: Underground Album” on the independent North North Records. He has since released two more solo albums, “Hustle Till I Die” (2009) and “Stay Trippy” (2013).
Departing from the self-produced tradition, “Stay Trippy” featured a number of guest producers including Wiz Khalifa, Mike WiLL Made It, Lex Luger, Young Chop, and Timbaland. The album was also his first release on Kemosabe Records, an imprint of Sony Music Entertainment’s Columbia group.
Taylor Gang Records
After founding two record labels with the Three 6 Mafia (Prophet Entertainment and Hypnotize Minds), Juicy J announced that he would be joining another record label in 2011 – Wiz Khalifa’s independent Taylor Gang imprint. Juicy is now one-third owner of the label, and also acts as an A&R rep, scouting and signing new artists.
Latest Ventures: Three 6 Mafia Reunion and New Solo Album
After several years of hiatus, five of the original members of the Three 6 Mafia reunited in 2013, assuming the new name Da Mafia 6ix. Despite membership issues, including the sudden death of Lord Infamous in December 2013, the group has a new album in the works, which should be released sometime in 2014.
Juicy is also set to release a new album of his own called “Pure THC: The Hustle Continues” in September 2014. The album’s first single, “Low,” which featured Young Thug, Nicki Minaj, and Lil Bibby dropped in August 2014.
