Artist

While his drug use was hardly a secret, Juice’s death still sent shockwaves through the music industry, especially in light of the then recent deaths of two contemporaries, XXXTentacion and Lil Peep, both of whom Juice had memorialized on Too Soon, a two-track EP he released in June 2018. On “Legends,” Juice sings, “They tell me I’ma be a legend, I don’t want that title now / ’Cause all the legends seem to die out.” XXXTentacion was shot by robbers at the age of 20, and Lil Peep died of an overdose two weeks after his 21st birthday. “SoundCloud rap,” as their subgenre was known, was characterized by extremely raw and oftentimes tragic songs, but just when the sound was moving toward the center of music, its most promising artists were gone.

Juice had the rare ability to freestyle lyrics and melody with intense emotion—a feat he famously demonstrated for more than an hour on Tim Westwood’s British radio show, in 2018. Producer Rex Kudo recalls the first time he met Juice at Metropolis Studios in London, where Kudo was working on a song with the artist M.I.A. Seconds after meeting her, Juice went into the booth, “and he just started freestyling,” Kudo remembers. “We made an amazing song, and it’s not something we could have done on purpose. I started it for [M.I.A.], and Juice went in and made it his own.” (Source: www.gq.com)
