The performance by rapper Juicy J on Saturday night excited fans and left them wanting more—much more.

The concert, capping off a full week of Homecoming activities, was scheduled to start at 11:30 p.m. in the main gym of Manuel Rivero Hall but didn’t begin until about 12:15 a.m. Once it did, some students said it was too short.

Accompanied by only a DJ, Juicy J performed “Bandz Will Make Her Dance,” “Bounce It,” “Clappers,” and the 3-6 Mafia song “Stay High.”

He was a real crowd-pleaser, sitting on the edge of the stage and reaching out to the fans to shake their hands. At one point, he stood in the front part of the crowd on the floor among the fans, driving them wild.

Backstage before the show, Juicy J answered a few questions, though not giving the full 15-minute interview required by his contract, said SGA Vice President Lowell Howard.

Juicy J was displeased with some things when he first arrived because his private room lacked food and he did not like that there were people in the hallway. Some criticized his behavior and his demands.

The Lincolnian asked where he would like to take rap and his career.

“As far as my career, I been doing this for years,” he said. “I wanna be like a CEO of Columbia records, run a major label. That’s just my goal: just try and help new and upcoming acts.”
