Juicy J signs with Dr. Luke’s Kemosabe Records | Music News

Rap veteran Juicy J continues to diversify his industry support system by inking a deal through Columbia with Kemosabe Records, an L.A.-based imprint headed by Grammy-nominated and ASCAP Award-winning producer Dr. Luke.

Though already a legend in the Southern region of the U.S. from his work as a founding member of the provocative and Oscar-winning rap and production team Three Six Mafia, Juicy J linked with Wiz Khalifa‘s Taylor Gang late in 2011 to extend his musical reach. He looks to stretch that reach even further with his latest affiliation, and plans to release his debut solo album later this year.

“For me to be teaming up with Dr. Luke, Columbia Records & Wiz Khalifa (TGOD) on my new solo album, I’m really excited for this,” he said in a statement. “We’re gonna call ourselves the Powerhouse 3. Look out for more.”

It sounds like Trippy Season is rapidly approaching.
