With a straight face, Fader interviews OJ da Juiceman

Posted By on Wed, Dec 24, 2008 at 3:30 PM

Back in ’06, when NY hip-hop critics began hailing the arrival of Atlanta-based rapper Young Jeezy, it left a lot of southern rap aficionados a little mystified. It wasn't so much that we weren't feeling Jeezy's trap-or-die flow, we just didn't expect those East Coast hip-hop snobs to jump on the Snowman's jock so quick.

Well, looks like it's about to snow again. Another Atlanta trap-rapper OJ da Juiceman (coincidentally affiliated with one-time Jeezy rival, Gucci Mane) has been creating quite a buzz with such mixtapes as Culinary Art School and I Got the Juice. And Fader, for one, has taken notice. The music mag typically favors alternative progressives (Kanye West and No Age cover reversible sides of its December issue — argue amongst yourselves), so the interest in OJ is suspect.

Call me a paranoid Southerner, but their praise of the artist seems like a joke everyone is in on but da Juiceman, himself.

You make the call. Check out the video interview above that Fader filmed over lunch with OJ in NY.
