Juicy J Awards Biology Major With $50,000 Scholarship

Juicy J is known by many as a co-founder of Memphis’ most successful rap group to date: Three 6 Mafia.

But lately, he’s received attention for his emergence as a solo artist, crafting such hits as “Bandz A Make Her Dance,” and bringing more attention to twerking, a dance popularized in the South a couple decades ago.

Twerking involves a person moving their body in a sensual manner while shaking their butt and hips to music, typically hip-hop, R&B, or pop. In collaboration with WorldStarHipHop, Juicy J announced a twerking contest with a $50,000 college scholarship for the best dancer. However, the contest requirements were later changed so that participants simply had to create a video of themselves telling or showing Juicy why they deserved the cash.

Juicy recently revealed the winner of the $50,000 scholarship: 19-year-old Zaire Holmes. Check out Juicy awarding Holmes, a biology major and aspiring artist, with the scholarship in the video below. And find out if she had to actually twerk to win the contest.
