The first posthumous Juice WRLD single has arrived. The estate for the late rapper announced that new music was on the way just yesterday, promising the release of "Righteous" from the Chicago MC to drop everywhere at midnight.
Juice WRLD's mother Carmella Wallace, his family, and the team at Grade A Productions made an official statement with an Instagram post on Thursday.
“Juice was a prolific artist who dedicated his life to making music,” the statement reads. “Choosing how to share his upcoming music with the world has been no easy feat. Honoring the love Juice felt for his fans while shining a light on his talents and his spirit are the most important parts of this process to us."
It continues, “tonight we will be releasing a song called ‘Righteous’ which Juice made from his home studio in Los Angeles. We hope you enjoy the new music and continue to keep Juice’s spirit alive. Stay safe everyone."
The song was recorded at the late rapper’s Los Angeles studio prior to his December 2019 death. Juice WRLD’s death was ruled an accidental overdose of oxycodone and codeine. Juice was 21 years old.
Juice gave us two albums during his short-lived career, including 2018’s Goodbye & Good Riddance and 2019’s Death Race For Love.
Although Juice WRLD may not no longer be with us physically, his music lives on. Reportedly he passed away with over 2,000 songs in his vault, so we see much more material coming our way in the near future.
For now, check out “Righteous” below.
