December 8, 2021 marked the second anniversary of the tragic death of Juice WRLD at Chicago Midway Airport.
A vibrant tribute
In the years since the death of rapper Juice WRLD, hip-hop made sure to keep its spirit alive in multiple ways. Indeed, his second posthumous album “‘ Fighting Demons” ‘ will be released on December 10th. In this context, MONTREALITY spoke with some of his friends. This meeting was especially to commemorate the life and the legend of one of the most outstanding artists of recent memory.
In a video, SoFaygo, Lil Durk, Migos, Lil Keed, Big Sean, Trippie Redd and other rappers paid homage to the illustrious departed. The eight-minute video titled “ In Memory of Juice WRLD ” portrayed a hungry rapper determined to reach the top.
Lil Durk has said that every time he walks into the studio his compatriot Juice WRLD motivates him tremendously to give the best of himself. “’ He was like an icon. I’m not saying it because he’s gone. He had the advantage of being next from Chicago, next after Kanye West. He was very smart with a crazy personality. He was a musical genius, ”said Lil Durk . “’ He put the pressure on me… rest in peace Juice WRLD, ”’ he continued.
Much like Durk, Big Sean said that Juice WRLD’s songs were inspirational and came straight from the heart. ” Juice. I mean a great, amazing, talented and honest artist. It will live on forever. These songs, this honesty, this music, how raw, uncensored it was. It also inspires me to stay raw, to stay uncensored. I really appreciate it, ‘ ‘ Big Sean said.
Trippie Redd, meanwhile, tells MONTREALITY that Juice was hilarious and that he saw him as a brother in life. In his latest Trip At Knight project , Trippie included a collaboration with Juice WRLD.
He was a great friend. He was just fucking funny. He used to do funny bullshit. I do not know. He was funny as hell… He was one of us, that’s for sure. He was definitely part of the group of friends. “Said Trippie. He was just my brother. We just vibed differently because we figured it out. Long live my brother. ”
A new album that promises
