Juice WRLD’s Legends Never Die new album was released posthumously. Such a bitter-sweet album release as we get new music from the deceased rapper, yet his talented touch on the world was so short-lived. We haven’t experienced a fraction of his potential. RIP Juice!

“Materialistic, money stuff don’t really mean nothing… My relationship is good. I got money. But there’s still other issues to talk about other than heartbreak. You got anxiety, you got substance abuse… It’s a lot of issues in the world to talk about. Music is just a beautiful thing. I love myself so much as far as the way I make music, the way God made me, the way God wired me to do the things that I do and to change the world the way that I can.”
In an interview with Genius’ Rob Markman, the Chicago-native rapper opens up the album with the statement above. He has always been vocal about drug abuse in his music. But he speaks on so much more than substance abuse on wax. He opens doors for youth to connect with their feelings, expressed them, and hopefully talk to someone about them.
On December 8, 2019, at the tender age of only 21, Juice WRLD passed of a drug overdose. His private jet was being searched for drugs and guns. Juice ingested multiple Percocet pills in an attempt to hide the narcotics from police- thus resulting in his demise.
Juice WRLD Legends Never Die
The twenty-one track ensemble from Juice WRLD Legends Never Die is a time-capsule. Just like explosive immortal artists who preceded him such as Biggie, Tupac, Nipsey Hussle– he influenced generations with his music.
An interlude track alone can give you an idea of his potential. “The Man, The Myth, The Legend” feature soundbites marvels from legends such as T.I. and media podcasters raving over his freestyle and hit-making capability. The adolescence could literally freestyle coherently for an hour. He could make entire dope songs in minutes. His time was too short.
Yes, there are joints where he speaks on coping with his demons such as in “Righteous” and “Fighting Demons.” Then contrasts them on tracks like “Screw Juice” or “Man of the Year,” urging his fans to use him as an example for motivation. The latter song even has a rock feel rather than Hip Hop trap beats. The fast-paced beat reminds me of a childhood video game on Nintendo called Skate Or Die.
Juice WRLD’s dark-depressed lyrical style infused with auto-tuned singing ballads are signature throughout Legends Never Die.
