OJ Da Juiceman Opens Up About The Music Industry & Relationship With Gucci Mane

In a recent interview with Lalaa Shepard & The Progress Report, one of trap music’s creators, OJ Da Juiceman opens up about his past and details intimate stories about his life and music career from having his sister help him write music, coping with diabetes, discovering nearly every successful producer such as Lex Lugar, Sonny Digital, Metro Boomin, Zaytoven, Mike Will Made It, and several others.

 OJ speaks on creating a new lingo and setting standards in rap music and how things are more acceptable today than they were when he was coming up.

OJ details how his innate nature of being a hustler made him a successful independent artist enabling him to release over 40 mixtape and 2 albums.

OJ even shares how getting robbed out of millions of dollars changed how he moved in the music industry and how no one believed in his biggest hit to date, “Make The Trap Say Aye”.  Despite taking over 2 years to break, he never stopped believing in himself.

“Slow money is better than no money”.

OJ even stated that he and Gucci Mane will work soon when the time is right and wants upcoming artists to learn the music business so they can keep their profits.

Check Out Philly RedFace's Epic Visual For "Hunnit Bandz"

Philly Redface linked with Griffy and Da Troopa for part music video, part mini movie, "Hunnit Bandz".

 

Philly Redface is a seasoned artist from the streets of North Philadelphia now residing in Atlanta, Georgia. 

 

His birth name, Nashid is Arabic for poet which inspired Philly to get into music at a young age.

 

He earned his respect in the streets and for his volunteerism with his bi-monthly Feed The Hood campaign which was an event aimed to bring together oppressed communities with food, celebration, and a first listen to new music from Philly Redface himself.

 

After barely surviving the rough realities of the Philadelphia streets, Philly Redface and his family eventually moved to Atlanta with a dollar and a dream in need of a change of scenery. 

 

Philly never lost his passion for music as he gave away CDs while selling burgers and hotdogs at local convenient stores. 

 

With 5 mixtapes and albums available online, Philly Redface has an extensive resume. (Introducing Redface, Spark Up The Philly, Philly 2Da A, The Philadelphia Story which features other prominent Philly artists, Gillie The Kid and Jack Frost and No Turn On Red which was Philly’s first album to feature southern production). 

 

Philly Redface is motivated now more than ever to prove his position in Hip Hop and has since performed at several artist showcases and has a joint music group with rising artist, Griffy called The Formula.
