Released on Tuesday (November 15), the cryptocurrency-inspired collaboration clocks in at 18 songs and boasts guest appearances from Wiz Khalifa, Lil Keke, La Chat, Finesse2Tymes, BeatKing and more.
The project’s first single, “Be Careful” featuring Finesse2Tymes, also comes with an official music video directed by Vince Boussamba that finds Juicy getting his rhymes off in a studio.
Juicy J and Lex Luger first hinted at dropping a new joint effort on social media earlier this year. Crypto Business serves as their first full-length collaboration in over a decade following 2011’s Rubber Band Business 2, the sequel to the 2010 original.
The duo have remained relatively close collaborators since then, with Luger landing production credits on Juicy’s 2017 solo album Rubba Band Business and 2013’s Stay Trippy.
Crypto Business also serves as the Three 6 Mafia legend’s third project this year, all of which have been joint efforts. In February, he teamed up with fellow Taylor Gang rep Wiz Khalifa for Stoner’s Night before linking with producer/rapper Pi’erre Bourne for Space Age Pimpin’ in August.
While he continues on a steady pace of releasing music, Juicy J also has his ears tuned in to what’s bubbling on the scene. Earlier this month, the Memphis native stumbled on a video of Logic teaching his two-year-old son how to use a drum kit and he was seemingly impressed by what he saw.
Juicy hopped in to Logic’s Instagram comments section to inquire about purchasing a beat from the rapper’s young son for an upcoming album. “Mane that’s dope tell lil Bobby I need a beat for my new album,” he wrote.
The 46-year-old’s last solo album, The Hustle Continues, arrived in November 2020, complete with appearances from Lil Baby, Pooh Shiesty, NLE Choppa, Rico Nasty and Kaash Paige, among others.
Lex Luger, meanwhile, released Bonfire, a joint project with Cleveland, Ohio rapper and Kid Cudi affiliate King Chip, in February. The eight-song offering featured a sole appearance from fellow 2010s blog era mainstay Casey Veggies.
