Gallery: Juicy J plays host to the wildest party of the night

​Juicy J came to San Francisco last night and played host to what was probably the wildest party in the city that night.

Every good party, either in a house or a club, needs a good host to get the guests going. Of course, it’s not Juicy J’s job to get the party hyped to begin with, that task was capably done by KMEL’s DJ Amen, along with the night’s earlier DJs Sean D and Ruby Red-I. But Juicy kept the crowd pumped. He performed his catalog (and reminded the audience about his long span of production, from the Katy Perry collab to the early Three 6 Mafia days) in bits and pieces, just enough to get and keep the crowd as hot as possible, like a DJ hot-mixing tracks one verse at a time. And in between takes, he threw things into the crowd: his Trippy Stix vape pens, dollar bills, alcohol (ok, he didn’t actually throw alcohol, but he poured out shots and champagne often) and his hand to pull up people from the crowd to the stage. What he got was one overflowing crowd at the usually intimate venue, all piled together and throwing themselves at him for a solid hour and half, and all without a lull. It’s clear that despite a long career, Juicy’s got energy to spare.
