Juice WRLD’s team has just announced “Legends Never Die,” the first posthumous project from the late Chicago artist.
The short teaser video features the rapper—whose real name was Jared Higgins—performing a short freestyle rap opening up about suicide and drug addiction over a synth and choral beat. The video, which was shared on Juice’s social media accounts, then fades to black and reveals the text “Legends Never Die” and the date 7/10, ending on the hashtag #LLJW (Long Live Juice WRLD). The world-renowned artist passed away this past December at age 21.
While it’s unclear what kind of project Legends Never Die will take the form of, Juice’s girlfriend Ally Lotti took to her Instagram story to thank all those involved with the project including engineers and producers, suggesting that this is a full-blown posthumous album. Check out the teaser video (also posted on Lotti’s account) down below and expect the project to appear on streaming platforms this Friday.
Update: Here’s the cover art and an official statement from Juice’s team. The 15-song album arrives July 10th.
