Juicy J’s real name is Jordan Michael Houston. He was born on 5 April 1975 in Memphis, Tennessee.
The artist began his music career when he was just 16 years old. During that period, he formed his band Three 6 Mafia. The band helped develop a new music style, called south hip-hop. Initially, besides Jordan, the lineup included DJ Paul, Lord Infamous, Crunchy Black, Gangsta Boo, and Koopsta Knicca. However, it took three years to finalize all the details and start working. In 1995, the band released its debut LP, Mystic Stylez. The album climbed to the 59th spot of US Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums Chart.
Jordan stayed with the band until 2012. He wrote many songs and performed them as a vocalist. Juicy J also acted as a producer. The group released nine successful albums. The last two Most Known Unknown and Last 2 Walk reached the top-10 of Billboard 200. The group also earned several awards, including an Academy Award for the song "It's Hard out Here for a Pimp". Three 6 Mafia fell apart in 2012.
