The Kid LAROI Tells the Story of Juice WRLD’s Death in New HBO Documentary | Hip Hop Corner: French rap, US and culture news

Juice WRLD has become over the past few years a Top 10 hitmaker delivering introspective lyrics over melodic production, with echoes of Travis Scott and Post Malone. Her 2018 debut album, Goodbye & Good Riddance (2018), home to her biggest hit “Lucid Dreams,” reflects a wide range of stylistic influences: R&B instrumentation, dreamy beats, and even indie rock melody. The momentum created by “Lucid Dreams” helped push Juice’s second album, A Death Race for Love (2019), to the top of the charts.

A few months later, at the height of his mainstream popularity, he tragically died after suffering a medical emergency at Chicago’s Midway Airport; he had just turned 21. At the time of his death, Juice had three Hot 100 singles and two official Top 100 albums. His death deeply marked his parents, his fans, and his fellow singers who continue to take action day by day so that his memory and his works will never last. In the latest version of the new HBO documentary, The Kid LAROI took the opportunity offered to him to return to the last moments of the singer’s life.

LAROI was there for Juice’s final moments

The past two weeks have been an opportunity to celebrate and remembering the life of Juice WRLD. First, on December 10, his second posthumous album, Fighting Demons, was released and charted at number two on the Billboard Hot 100. Then, on December 16, HBO Max aired a nearly two-hour documentary about his life, struggle with drug addiction, art, death, and its impact on hip-hop. Entitled Juice WRLD: Into The Abyss, said documentary has since its release toured the world and allowed a large number of people to know more about the late singer.

The documentary showed wholesome moments that made viewers smile, like the time he was singing with Cordae when Trippie Redd performed his song in collaboration with XXXTentacion “F**k Love”. Later, he showed another touching video of Juice WRLD meeting Tyler, The Creator and congratulating him on having a major influence on his younger yearsleaving Tyler speechless.

Moreover, besides these pleasant moments, there were also dark memories. The documentary aired two years and a week after Juice’s death in 2019, and Juice’s close friends were used to retell this tragic story. Kid LAROI has always considered Juice WRLD a mentor, because he was an artist that Juice had taken under his wing and who had made him popular. Today, LAROI’s notoriety has reached its peak, since it found himself number 1 in the charts and gained viral fame. Being so close to Juice, he revealed that he was present, along with Juice’s girlfriend Ally, when the latter was arrested at the airport by the police and that he had a fatal drug overdose.

The ‘Without you’ singer said Juice was bleeding from the mouth, and the police stopped them from getting Juice the help he needed: “I remember getting off the plane and seeing all the cops and everything out the window. They said, ‘Everyone get out their passport.’ I sat down and Juice was sitting across from me… I froze, not sure what I could do to help him. We were all sitting there freaking out. At first, we thought he was having a seizure, but blood started coming out of his mouth and nose. So everyone obviously started panicking even more. Then the police came, handcuffed us in line and said, ‘Don’t come near him… They told Ally he was fine, but we all looked like he was like, ‘Dude, he’s bleeding .

Although many criticize his lifestyle, Juice WRLD did not intend to change his life for anything in the world

The late Juice WRLD told iLoveMakonnen he wouldn’t change his life for anything in an exclusive clip from the HBO documentary “Juice WRLD: Into The Abyss“. The second posthumous studio album by late Chicago rapper Juice WRLD, titled Fighting Demonswas released almost two weeks ago and, at the moment, the album seems to be ready to come in second in the charts this week. The album features some of Juice’s best friends in the music industry, including Polo G and Trippie Redd on “Feline,” along with other superstars, like Justin Bieber on lead single “Wandered To LA” and BTS’ Suga on the hit track “Girl Of My Dreams”.

In addition to the new record, fans of the 21-year-old artist will have the opportunity to take a closer look at the struggling artist’s life through the documentary Juice WRLD: Into The Abyss on HBO and HBO Max, which will be aired December 16. Exclusive video from the documentary, provided to HNHH by HBO, shows the ‘Lucid Dreams’ rapper in a phone conversation with fellow iLoveMakonnen, best known for his single ‘Tuesday’, as they discuss Juice’s anxiety and how fame has affected her.

In the video, Juice tells how he rode a motorcycle to reduce his stress and anxiety. He acknowledges that he was lucky enough to be in such a high position before noticing that everything was “surreal” and “hectic”. “I’m more than grateful, I thank God every day for this shit, I’m blessed“, he told Makonnen on the phone. “But it’s still surreal. I always feel like at any moment I could wake up in my bed and be like ‘fuck, I knew that was a dream’. […] I wouldn’t want to do anything else. This is my passion. I like music, I like to spread my message, I like to speak my mind. And me, being able to do all of these things on one platform is a blessing. I wouldn’t change it for the world, although sometimes things can be hectic.
