Talkin’ Bout marks yet another surprising upswing in the career of a man most people assumed would vanish from the scene after 2009 and the break-up of Three Six. Juicy J, now thirty-nine and marking the release of his second solo album Stay Trippy, has celebrated the occasion with Talkin’ Bout, his gleeful ode to the moment featuring Chris Brown and Wiz Khalifa. Best known for his hardcore hedonism, Juicy J pulls no punches here with a slick four-minute nod to his unanticipated success and laid-back lifestyle; the beat is mid-speed, the high-profile feature spots used to enhance instead of conceal the man himself. But the real attitude here is in the lyrics; enunciated with aplomb, he raps about sex, drugs and the lifestyle no-one seems to be able to stop him leading. For a man of almost forty, that’s pretty impressive.
