Juicy J Says He Couldn't Get Drunk After Three 6 Mafia's "It's Hard Out Here For A Pimp" Oscar Win

Juicy J also provides suggestions for Oscar winners.

In advance of the 86th Academy Awards, which is slated to take place in Los Angeles today (March 2), Juicy J says every acceptance speech should include at least one specific thank you.

"I think they should thank God, man, you know what I'm saying,” the Memphis rapper-producer says during an interview with MTV. "I don't hear a lot of people thanking God for their acceptance speeches. They be just like, ‘Yo, thank this person.' You should thank everybody, and thank God as well, you know what I'm saying. It it wasn't for Him, we wouldn't even be here.”

Juicy J won an Oscar for "Best Original Song" in 2006 for “It’s Hard Out Here For A Pimp,” Three 6 Mafia’s song on the Hustle & Flow soundtrack, which was credited to Djay f. Shug. Djay was the character portrayed by Terrence Howard.

Juicy J, whose Never Sober Tour with Project Pat and Travis Scott stopped at the House Of Blues in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina yesterday (March 1), offered another suggestion for Oscar nominees.

"Just don't be drunk,” he says. “You know, be sober the whole show. And if you win, or if you don't win or whatever, then get drunk after the show. That’s what I did, you know what I'm saying. I was super sober and after the show, after we won, I actually tried to get drunk. But I couldn't because I was super tired. But I was drunk, a little bit."

    In the end it's whatever, but I wouldn't expect the guy from 666 Mafia to be preaching to anyone about who they need to give thanks to. A lot of people saying they don't care, and then go into this long story about just how much they don't care. I care, but only because I think it's interesting...

    Fuck God, man. So you will go onstage and thank god for the Oscar for a movie like BLOOD DIAMONDS or 12 YEARS A SLAVE. But God himself aint stopping the shit that's going on. Yeah, of course.

    I love the plot twist in this story. First he couldn't get drunk, then somehow he managed rise up, over-come, and got drunk. A little.

      Juicy J keeps his head tight and money right. Thank God every day brother man, let the haters hate and pray for the non-believers who think life has no purpose and everything stops when you die!

    God had nothing to do with it. You put in the work and developed your skills and talent to the level that you were nominated for, and then proceeded to win, an Oscar. I'm tired of seeing shit like this from my black brothers.

      God has everything to do with it

      "Saying you don't care what people believe, and then saying that God has nothing to do with them" Okay, let me make something clear: I am irritated by the arrogance it takes to believe that the creator of the universe would give a flying fuck whether a person wins an Oscar. I don't care that they believe in a God or religion. The rest of your comment is bleh.

      Saying you don't care what people believe, and then saying that God has nothing to do with them winning is a total contradiction. If someone is a Christian, chances are they're going to thank God because they believe he gave them an opportunity to succeed, not that hard of a concept to grasp. Use a little common sense, see that every point you make contradicts the one you said before, and stop being a stuck up little dipshit. I didn't accuse you of being atheist, I accused you of giving a fuck what people believe (which you clearly do, otherwise this wouldn't bother you so much) you should probably learn to state your opinion more effectively before coming at someone else, fucking clown.

      Anonymous: "you a bitch, just because somebody believes in a higher power bitch-ass atheist get ass hurt over it, let people believe what they want to believe you bitch ass turd" 1. I am not an atheist. 2. Using the term atheist as a pejorative tells me all I need to know about your dumb ass. 3. The fact that he believes in God (or a God, or Gods) doesn't bother me at all. I could give fuck all what anyone believes. However, when niggas thank God (or a God, or Gods) for the success they've achieved in life it irritates me. Why? Because niggas are essentially thanking God for making them so special, and so unique that out of all the people on this planet God deemed them worthy of great success. If you're fine with that, then go fuck yourself ... bitch ass nigga. On the the next dumb nigga. JRich: "Why does it matter to you? If someone wants to believe in God, and they aren't trying to push it on you, then why the fuck do you care??? I just don't understand how this is that hard of a concept for people to get." Look, you simpleton, I don't care what people want to believe. Assuming that I do from two sentences that I posted in which a.) I said nothing disparaging about Juicy J for his belief in God, b.) nothing disparaging about the concept of God or religion in general, and c.) did not imply that people who believe in God should stop believing because I don't (by the way I am not an atheist) is fucking asinine.

What about all the people with no abilities living on the streets cause they cant get hired or the babies born by crack mothers and no fathers. god didnt do shit cause he doesnt exist and if he does hes a moron for letting all this shit happen. people get rich and talented because they worked hard end of story. if its all god given ability i guess Lebron dropped out of his mom dunking on people in the operating room and he never worked hard a day in his life. stupid people will believe anything cause they are too dumb to understand science

      Well, a lot of people do but it's not because they're stupid; it's just that they're not thinking critically.
