After Juicy J broke off as a solo artist his career took off. He's been collaborating with new artists like Katy Perry, Nicki Minaj, Big Sean and Cardi B and adopting a whole new fanbase. He's taken particular interest in $uicideBoy$, he worked with them on his Highly Intoxicated mixtape. He found them through Twitter, everyone was telling him to listen to them.

$uicideBoy$, they're the truth, man. I'm executive producing their new album. Them guys are like family members, man. I was on Twitter and everybody was hitting me [like], "Yo, yo yo, you gotta check out these guys, man. $uicideBoy$, their music sound like y'all. It sound like old Three 6 Mafia." And then I would go on SnapChat and somebody would go, "Yo, yo, yo, check out the $uicideboy$." So I go on SoundCloud, I'm listening, I'm smoking weed and one of their songs came on and I was like, holy shit! And I heard that shit and I was like, man, this is amazing cause it reminds me of my music from back in 92, 91.

He was impressed and started working with them and collaborating on music. It was only natural that he would produce their next album. He says, "I'm telling you. $uicideboy$ is like a whole new wave. Their sound has an old Three 6 Mafia feel and it's a whole new different style of music. We can expect the album in 2018. Juicy J is working on a lot of new music, his new song Kamasutra with Cardi B is out, and he's working on a remix of G-Eazy's No Limit.
