Who was Juice Wrld?

Juice Wrld was born in Chicago, Illinois in 1998 – he was raised by his single mother and she is described as a religious and conservative woman who didn’t allow him to listen to hip hop.

He started rapping in school but rose to fame in 2018, when single Lucid Dreams peaked at No.2 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart and No.10 on the official UK chart.

One of his songs, Legends, was dedicated to 20-year-old XXXTentacion and 21-year-old Lil Peep – who died in 2018 and 2017 – and contained the lyrics “all the legends seem to die out”.

In 2018, Juice WRLD talked about using cannabis and Xanax, an anti-anxiety medication, in an interview with the New York Times.

In other interviews, he spoke about his use of lean, a liquid mix containing prescription-strength cough syrup and soft drinks.
