    "I can turn a church girl into a stone cold slut," Juicy J announces on "Money A Do It", one of many standouts from Stay Trippy. That's how dope his flow is on the album though—he can make even the most proper girl get nasty.

    Stay Trippy is as wild as modern hip-hop gets. It's a slick, seductive, and stone romp through a hazy synth boom, strip club-ready beats, and some of Juicy J's tightest rapping to date. Whether he's cutting it up over a sample of The Weeknd's "High For This" during "Smokin' Rollin'" with Pimp C or getting straight raw on the bullet-riddled "Gun Plus a Mask" featuring Yelawolf, Juicy J sounds downright smooth, dripping like codeine over airy soundscapes. Justin Timberlake adds some scorching falsetto to the sexy vibrancy of "The Woods", while A$AP Rocky helps him approve "applicants" on "Scholarship".

    "Wax" remains one of the most irresistible moments as it coasts along on Juicy J's inimitable delivery. Then, there are the bonus tracks including the raunchy fun of "Having Sex", where Trina and 2 Chainz enhance a bedroom ready jam, while Juicy J and The Weeknd experience the blissful groove of "One of Those Nights".

    Ain't nothing like tripping with Juicy J…Stay Trippy is so good it might just get you high.
