The homies over at Elite Daily took the time to draw out the true meaning behind Juicy J’s Taylor Gang debut project, Stay Trippy. Although the album won’t drop until August 27th, the album is available for stream via Juicy J’s website. However, you must play Stay Trippy the game in order to unlock tracks. Peep Elite Daily’s in-depth break down each track on the album. Sit back, roll a plane, and read (turn) up!
Track #1: “Stop It”
The opening track to the album starts off with Juicy straight up saying, “Make money, no vacation.” This line is a testament to the hard work and dedication that has separated Juicy from the competition over the years. While others may take days off to relax, it’s vital to always stay ahead of the game by keeping up with the grind; otherwise, you’ll end up falling off. The biggest difference between the people who stay relevant for one year and those who are around for 20 is the amount of hours they put into perfecting their craft. Once you get to the top, never forget to remind those who hated on the way that they ain’t sh*t.
Track #2: “Smokin’ Rollin” (featuring Pimp C)
Even though you’re working, it doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy a Marley break from time to time. Enjoy all of your vices and do you — just remember to get your sh*t done. “Where the hell is we headed, I don’t know but I’m high.” Trust your instincts and keep moving forward with whatever you’re doing. Don’t let any outside distractions affect you, and keep striving …even when you’re mad smacked.
Track #3: “No Heart No Love” (featuring Project Pat)
“You do wrong, wrong will follow.” There’s probably no words realer than these on the album. Juicy J shows no mercy in these streets, and sometimes, that’s just how it has to be. When it comes to business, you can’t f*ck around. It’s all about money and respect, so when someone crosses you, let them know that it’s unacceptable and should never happen again. Karma is a real b*tch, yo.
Track #4: “So Much Money”
There’s only one concrete message in this song: get money, until you have too much money. But then again, how much is too much? Just when you think you’ve made it, keep grinding and expand your empire. “I’m countin’ so much money, dollar signs all I see.”
Track #5: “Bounce It” (featuring Wale & Trey Songz)
There’s plenty of room for b*tches in Juicy’s life, but not for a relationship. Juicy is about his business and certainly isn’t looking to slow down his hustle and be tied down, but rather, to get ig’nant with someone’s daughter while stacking his bread. Money over b*tches. But you already knew that, right? “She wanna be my main chick, I was thinking different (different)/Clap that ass, light our blunt, baby, let’s get ig’nant (ig’nant).”
Track #6: “Wax”
Juicy J is the perfect example of someone who lives their life in the “fast lane.” Twenty years into the game, Juicy is still killing it and enjoying every second of his lavish lifestyle. No f*cks given. The lesson we took from this record is to never slow down your hustle, live everyday as though it’s your last, and stay high! “Bitch I live that fast life every day in ten speed/Look up in the sky, is that a plane, no it’s just me.”
