  • Asked by Genius for his definition of "Juice", Gotti replied: "Juice is, you know, you got the sauce. You got, 'It.' Whatever the f--k, 'it' is, you got it, you know what I mean? Like, you got the juice, you that nigga or you that bitch."
  • During the track Gotti boasts about the lavish jewelry pieces his life affords him, from his Audemars Piguet watch to rocking VVS diamonds.

    D-R-I-P-P-I-N-G
    I got that VVS I-C-E
    Ooh, feels like a cooler
    Juice, blame it on my jeweler


    Gotti said: "Jewellery is like fashion, it's like clothes, you wear it accordingly. The jewellery I wear on stage is not the jewellery I wear at business meets or the jewellery I do on a regular day. Everything is different.
    I wear jewellery every day, throughout the house. I don't give a f--k. If I'm not even leaving out the house for the day I'm putting on a chain."
  • Yo Gotti told Billboard the story of the song:

    "Me and my producer Ben Billions were trying to create a song that when it comes on, people immediately feel good, feel like partying, which we call a vibe. I like to make music from a personal standpoint, and the music that feels good to me, and when the music becomes big, it's even better because it's an even more organic feeling than when you, like, tried to make the hit record. When the record turns out to be as big as ['Juice'], that's a great feeling."
  • Gotti told Billboard the story behind his "I'm on my Cardi B" lyric:

    "That was the last line that I [wrote]. There was another line right there at first, but it was mediocre to me. Then, I was just listening to [the 'Bodak Yellow' line], 'if I see you and I don't speak, that means I don't f--k with you.' It's one of my favorite lines in the song, so I made a reference to it in my record. I'd met Cardi B on tour, running around. We've run into each other."
