As you probably remember, the year 2006 was owned by Three 6 Mafia, when the Memphis, TN group reinvented the rap wheel by winning an Academy Award for Best Original Song (“Hard Out Here For a Pimp” from Hustle & Flow). The trio already had a healthy collection of hits under their belts, as tracks like “Sippin On Some Syrup,” “Stay Fly,” “Poppin’ My Collar,” and “Slob On My Nob” were proverbial club bangers.
I remember DJing in college around this time and whenever I played a Three 6 Mafia track the crowd went BANANAS. But what happened after all of this momentum? For front man producer/rapper Juicy J, it was taking things back to square one. J spent the years that followed creating a street team, shooting videos, and releasing mixtapes, all in the name of the collective Three 6 buzz. He found a burgeoning solo career that transformed him from a part of a colossal whole to a standalone superstar. As Juicy J readies his second solo album [Stay Trippy], he takes his knowledge of the game and music to next level trippiness.
Collaborations include The Weeknd, Chris Brown, Yelawolf, Bei Maejor, Trey Songz, along with Taylor Gang affiliates Lola Monroe, Chevy Woods, and of course Wiz Khalifa. The flagship single “Bandz A Maker Her Dance” has already made its rounds, originating on Juicy J’s Twitter page. The next step is the 2050 Tour with Wiz Khalifa, tackling 50 cities in North America. After that it’s back on track to complete his album
Juicy J’s two-decade run in Hip-Hop has brought him to this very moment. While bridging the gap between old and new fans under one trippy umbrella, Juicy J has cracked a code most veteran rappers struggle to decipher. Making uncompromised music that anyone can relate to is this producer/rapper/businessman’s forte. It might be hard out here for a pimp, but Juicy J makes it look easy. Running Sony Music is part of his five-year plan. With ambition like his, it’s bound to happen.
In its fourth year, Together Boston is excited to expand our top billing to include performers like the dynamic and chart-topping sounds of the Oscar-winning Juicy J,” says Together Boston Creative Director David Day. “With the rise of what they call trap and recent forays of turntablists like A-Trak into clubland, Juicy J’s cutting-edge and pioneering hip-hop flow is right in line with our vision to bring new sounds in music to the Greater Boston community.
The Wilbur is located at 246 Tremont St. in Boston’s Historic Theatre District

Don’t forget to check out The Chainsmokers latest release! They remix Medicine from London indie/folk band Daughter and it’s absolutely killer. I love how they mix electronic with the chill and enchanting vocals of Elena Tonra. The two forces blend together beautifully. The original is incredibly moving on it’s own, but this brings a creative new light to the piece which is very refreshing.
I’d have to say, this is one of my favorite mixes (if not my favorite) from the Chainsmokers to date. I love how they don’t just confine themselves to one sound, or simply mix a popular song because everyone else is doing it. Instead, they make music that is an expression of their emotions— emotions which know no bound.
Drawing influences from Chicago house, Acid house and hip-hop, Carl Cox moved his way to the forefront of the early British rave scene and co-promoted some of the hottest events at the time with Paul Oakenfold and others. During the mid 90s, Cox moved more towards the sounds of techno and never looked back. He formed Intec records in the late 90s, which drove the sound of the early millennium until its closure in 2006. In 2011, Cox re-launched the label as Intec Digital, which became one of the hottest techno labels, introducing the world to bright young producers.
“Techno drives home somewhere,” he says of his core music. “It takes you to an element of surprise, not knowing where you’re going. It’s scary but wonderful at the same time.”
After all the years, Carl Cox still remains one of the major players in the world of electronic music with no signs of slowing down anytime soon. A forward thinker by definition, Cox’s ability to maintain relevancy while continuing to push innovation solidify him as one of dance music’s all time greats. Year after year, Cox consistently headlines some of the world’s top festivals and clubs, including countless seasons in Ibiza and the ULTRA music festival, where he has his own stage, The Carl Cox Arena. He also continues to produce music and released the LP, All Roads Lead to the Dancefloor in 2011 to much critical acclaim. The record showcased Cox’s versility and prowess with a range of styles across its 20+ tracks including Vocal House, Dubstep, Drum & Bass, Latin and of course Techno.
Machine Gun Kelly is coming to The Wilbur Theatre on Thursday February 28th, 2013 at 8:30pm. Purchase your tickets here! There’s nothing like someone who has lived your story and Ohio’s MC MGK resilience has become a beacon of hope for thousands of kids across America. Penning rhymes about everything from addiction to family issues, MGK is a symbol of relentless perseverance to his fans and the MC is about to begin the next chapter of his already successful career. Born Colson Baker in Houston, Texas, MGK lived almost a dozen places, including Egypt, before moving to Denver, Colorado with his father after his mother began a new life with a new man.
In Denver, the Bakers lived with MGK’s aunt. As his dad fought depression and unemployment, the young MC split his time between wearing two school outfits and being bullied by the neighborhood kids. Later, while attending Denver’s Thomas Jefferson High School, the teen began experimenting with drugs and recorded his first demo tape. While attending Shaker Heights High on the city’s east side, MGK convinced a local t-shirt shop owner, who doubled as an MC manager, to take him under his wing. Nicknamed MGK by his fans, the MC released his first mixtape Stamp of Approval in 2006 and built a local fan base performing at Cleveland venues like Hi-Fi. But it was a trip to New York’s famed Apollo Theater in 2009 that really gave him his start.
The energetic performer became the first rapper in history to win the Apollo’s talent show. And while the MC’s catchphrase, “Lace up,” which started as a mixtape interlude, became a call to arms for fans, their leader was still flipping burritos at Chipotle to pay his rent. Not long after, an 18 year-old MGK welcomed his own child, a daughter named Casie. The infant gave the rapper new incentive to work even harder and he soon earned a nod for Best Midwest Artist at the 2010 Underground Music Awards and his “Alice in Wonderland” clip won Best Music Video at the 2010 Ohio Hip-Hop Awards. But just as his star began to rise, MGK suffered a new setback.
A polyp developed on his vocal chord which kept him offstage and out of the studio for six months. Without health insurance for surgery, MGK worked off the polyp by himself with tireless vocal exercises. But the sun shone again with the 2010 release of MGK’s Lace Up mixtape. In 2011, the Ohio rapper secured a label deal with Diddy’s Bad Boy Records/ Interscope Records. In October, the Rage Pack mixtape, inspired by his energy on stage and a love for his fans, hit the web. A video for MGK’s single “Wild Boy” featuring Atlanta rapper Waka Flocka Flame and produced by GB Hitz followed, leading MGK to win MTV’s Hottest Breakthrough MC for 2011.
Gearing up for his mainstream spotlight, MGK is currently prepping his official EP via Bad Boy/ Interscope entitled Lace Up. Slated to hit shelves in March, MGK will take his new music across the United States during the “90 Cities in 99 Days” tour with Midwest MC Tech N9ne also beginning that month. In addition, MGK’s secured a performance on this summer’s Vans Warped Tour line-up. Already acknowledged by cultural gatekeepers like The New York Times, MTV, The FADER and Nah Right, MGK is ready to devour the next phase of his career.
