Unlike others, Touchdown Juice got his name from playing football. His coach started calling him Juice and when he started his music career he added “Touchdown”. He tried to rap back in college in 2012, but explains how he was, “off beat” so he was embarrassed. It wasn’t till 2019 where he started recording.
Touchdown Juice writes all his music and tells us, “I can play the beat over and over and it doesn’t bother me at all, I just enjoy the music and creating. Helps me express myself”. His rap/hip hop sound comes from different cultures because he lived in the Midwest, South, and West Coast. What inspires him to write is “women, weed and the weather”. He thinks women are very supportive and will be the ones to buy tickets to shows therefor he feels he should make music relatable for women. “Got to have a positive female influence to be successful in music”.
His top three artists are Money Man, Ice “Billion” Berg, Pooh Sheisty. Each artist carry’s something unique that teaches Touchdown Juice a lot about music. “Pooh Sheisty because bruh the man right now, stayed in his lane and is a dope story teller”.
He can not only sing but he can also dance and warns us that he will definitely be having upcoming Tik Tok dances for his music.
Touchdown Juice says that “he’s most known for jumping on a beat and just starting out the song with a smooth 16 bars before the hook. I prefer to write a verse than a hook, but I’m getting better at both and it’s becoming more natural for me”. He also says that he’s been in the cannabis industry and used to roll up for his creative friends.
After his music career he’d like to invest in real estate and the cannabis industry. He believes that this will be a balance for his life where he can still continue his music career.
Currently, he will be releasing his first mixtape, “The LANDing” on April 20th. “I have all the songs done just getting the last 3 songs mixed & mastered. I also have been creating new music for another mixtape I plan to release 6-8 months after “The LANDing”. He’s been working hard and has 100 songs ready. We will soon see more music videos to Touchdown Juice latest hits.
