Legends Never Die

The posthumous project from rapper Juice Wrld that dropped Friday, July 10, 2020, contained 21 tracks, including the singles “Righteous” and “Tell Me You Luv Me (feat. Trippie Redd). The 21-year-old rapper died of an accidental drug overdose in December 2019 just six days after his birthday, after going into a seizure at an airport and then later dying at the hospital.  The project is a compilation of songs the artist recorded before his unexpected death. The following was posted on his Instagram Page:

“This Friday we will be honoring the life and art of Juice WRLD by releasing his album ‘Legends Never Die’. We feel that this collection of 15 songs best represents the music Juice was in the process of creating. This album shines a light on the collaborators that meant so much to Juice and deeply impacted his musical process. Juice dedicated his music to his fans and, now more than ever, we hope this album brings some reprieve to everyone during these unsettling times. Please join us in celebrating Juice’s life by enjoying this album. Juice’s legacy will live forever; LEGENDS NEVER DIE!”*

The album also contains songs with artists Marshmello and Halsey. Juice’s journey started back in 2015 when he dropped the song ‘Forever’ on Soundcloud, surprisingly as a teenager still in high school. Like many other rappers and artists, Juice Wrld used Soundcloud as his primary platform, releasing several songs and a few projects and EP’s.  When his track ‘All Girls Are The Same’ blew up, it landed him a hefty recording contract with Interscope, which led to the chart-topper ‘Lucid Dreams.’  The song sampled the classic track ‘Shape Of My Heart’ by Sting and went on to be a commercial success. He went on to release “Goodbye and Good Riddance” on his sophomore album “Death Race for Love.” He was featured on many tracks over the years with numerous artists and was estimated to be worth $4 million when he died. His memory will continue to live on through his friends, family, fans, and, most importantly, his music.

RIP Juice Wrld.

You will be missed.
