Earlier today RapFix debuted Big Sean’s cover for The Source’s annual Power 30 issue, and cover #2 features none other than Juicy J. The Memphis rapper, who shares the spread with Dr. Luke, drops his debut album Stay Trippy on August 27 and inside the issue–which highlights the most influential hip-hop figures in 2013–both he and Luke reminisce on his track record in the game.
Dr. Luke on Juicy J’s achievements: “Juicy J hasn’t changed his name or style and he’s still relevant. I don’t think that kind of thing happens to ordinary people.”
Juicy J on staying humble: “I went down to Atlanta, got out the car, and passed out mixtapes with my street team. I was telling them, ’Look, I’m not ashamed to get out here and show you how I used to do this back in the day.”
