But this criticism is alleviated with the all-around good music vibes and the positive karma Juicy J has unleashed into the world on the back of this song.
Not least among these happened when Juicy J held a contest for an actual college scholarship. Funnily enough, the winner didn’t have to twerk at all, as the song says in the lyrics, but just simply won by reading the whole directions to the contest.
Still, despite the very positive and meaningful giveaway around the song, the video falls into the unimaginative bills-flying, gentleman’s club-visiting muck that we’ve seen many times. In all, it is an innocuous diversion and winds up par for the course when it comes to telling a story within the grittiness of what apparently it takes to afford college. Maybe they should apply for a grant or a work-study program?
“Scholarship” is on Stay Trippy, Juicy J’s currently available LP.
