I’ll be the first to admit it. This is an odd song. Juice is filled with light, cartoony vocals and an almost nursery rhyme pop sensibility. But it works. Lowlifeilli made it very clear to me that this isn’t a song his fans would expect him to drop. Testing the limits of artistry is not experimented with enough, so I always appreciate when a rapper does this.
The song is actually very good. Not all my readers will enjoy it, but I urge you to expand your ear a bit. Clever Tribe’s instrumental is unique and adds a lot to the track. Lowlifeilli’s last drop was a freestyle to Future & Drake’s Where Ya At which was filled with wordplay and a consistent flow. He hasn’t released a ton of music, so I’m hoping more is to come.
Side note: Juice is also availble for free download.
