Former Dipset honcho and all-around gangsta rapper JUELZ SANTANA will be dropping a new mixtape on DATPIFF on 1/14, his first in a very long time.

Additionally, Juelz will be making a rare stop in Upstate NY on Saturday, 1/14/13, when he hits Upstate Concert Hall (formerly Northern Lights) in Clifton Park, NY. Road trip!!! For any of you aspiring rappers and artists out there, the promoter is STILL taking submissions to open the show, but you’d better get on it immediately if you’d like to be considered.

Tickets are $23 at the door, and don’t be stupid… Security at the venue is super tight.
