Juicy J has done his fair share of making lavish purchases over the course of his decorated career, but the Three 6 Mafia OG made a shrewd business move by deciding to invest in a solar power firm named Heliogen, which reportedly received a $2 billion valuation.
“I was gonna buy a moissanite diamond watch but i decided to invest the money in a huge operation,” Juicy J bragged with the caption of his post.

Moissanite is a diamond simulant in the gem family but not exactly a real diamond. The Memphis native wants his fans to understand how a business move, which isn’t always the cool thing to do, could be much more lucrative than flexing with a bedazzled watch or iced-out chain.
Founded by Bill Gross in 2013, Heliogen Inc. is looking to replace fossil fuels that “uses mirrors that are positioned with artificial intelligence to reflect sunlight at a small receiver, generating an intense heat.”
