The JuJu Mob is a four member underground hip hop group originating from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania that was founded in 2004. The four founding members of the JuJu Mob include Reef the Lost Cauze, Charon Don, Chief Kamachi and State Store.
Before the formation of the group, members of Juju Mob had been known for their frequent collaborations on each others albums. It was only in 2004 that Chief Kamachi decided that they should form together to work as a group. Charon Don, Reef the Lost Cauze and State Store were all fond of the idea and in the end; JuJu Mob was formed.
No Chorus/My Squad (2005)Edit
Initially, the group released their first two single No Chorus & My Squad. This however was released as a 12 inch vinyl and featured production work from DJ Mighty Mi, DJ Kwestion, E. Dan, Franchise, Eyego and was released via Good Hands Records & Eastern Conference Records.
Black Candles and hiatus of the group (2005-2007)Edit
Black Candles was the first studio album released by JuJu Mob, it was released shortly after the No Chorus Vinyl on May 17, 2005. It was announced that JuJu Mob would be working on their second studio album released in 2007, however the group announced that they would be working on their solo careers.
Chief Kamachi feud with Army of the Pharaohs (2008-2011)Edit
In 2008, Kamachi left Army of the Pharaohs (an underground super-group him and Reef were in) and released a diss track titled "First Warning" taking aim at the group's founder Vinnie Paz of Jedi Mind Tricks and member Apathy. Apparently, it started over an e-mail Apathy didn't respond to from Kamachi, what was written in the e-mail hasn't been disclosed.
In October, 2011, Reef spoke out saying; "From day one, anyone will tell you when they ask you how I've been about the beef, I've always been like, 'Yo this shit's whack, I just want it to stop,'" he said. "I always use this analogy that literally for me, it's like a little brother caught between older brothers fighting. Chief Kamachi put me on my first real record. He's someone that embraced me early on, he's shown me nothing but love, and it's the same with Paz, Planetary and all those other guys. For that situation to happen, it fucks me up. It's really, really rough. it's really hard. I just wish everyone would make peace and keep it moving. We're older, we have lives, we have kids and I just wish that everyone could sit down and have some beers and smoke and eat and make peace." The feud has died down but both sides still haven't come to an agreement.
Reformation of the group and #777 (2012-Present)Edit
Late 2012, it was announced that there could be a possibility of the group to reform however it wasn't confirmed until 2013 by Chief Kamachi. On November 1 2013, Chief Kamachi shared via his Facebook page that a new JuJu Mob album is on the way. It is rumoured to be called #777 after a single Kamachi released in July, 2 2013 titled "777" It is likely to be their second studio album.
