During a break in Three 6 Mafia's usually busy recording schedule, group co-leader/rapper/producer Juicy J put together Chronicles of the Juice Man, which he bills as an underground release because of its anti-commercial slant. Because the album isn't intended for mass consumption, it tends to be a little more authentic than one of Three 6's normal nationally released albums, and there's some great sampling here that would have had to have been cleared had this been a commercial release. Juicy spends a lot of mic time here venting about the recent incarceration of his brother, fellow Three 6 associate Project Pat. The particularly personal rhymes on Chronicles of the Juice Man should interest longtime Three 6 fans who want to learn what's on the mind of the group's co-mastermind, and it should similarly interest fans who favor the group's underground releases rather than their more commercial ones.
