Joyner Lucas is placing the blame of Juice WRLD’s death on all rappers who rap about drug use in their music.

The “I’m Not Racist” rapper tweeted, “Juice wrld was 21. He was a product of our generation of rappers who glorified drugs and made it cool. Im blaming Yal niggaz for this shit. all that lean and pills niggaz glorify and talk about. You teaching the kids to do it. Smh you happy now? Rip @JuiceWorlddd. Gone too soon”

A fan responded to his tweet saying, “Obviously didn’t know that much about him. He always talked about them but didn’t glorify them. “Baby I do not condone this, but I’ve been drinking and smoking” that’s just one thing I can think of off the top of my head that he said in a song.” Joyner replied, “I never said juice world glorified them. I knew what juice spoke about. Poor kid was depressed and went thru a lot so he used drugs as a outlet. Its this generation of music that glorified drugs and made them cool so kids like him and other kids abuse them. It’s a cycle dude. Smh.”

Juice WRLD previously said that Future’s music inspired him to do lean. Once he told Future about how his music prompted him to do the drug, Future apologized.

Sadly, Juice WRLD passed away yesterday (Dec.8) after he suffered a seizure in Chicago’s Midway Airport. An autopsy has been done, but a few more tests will be needed before his official cause of death is revealed. Authorities say he swallowed multiple pills in an attempt to hide them. Those pills could have been a direct cause to his death.

Do you think Juice WRLD’s death is at the hands of the rappers who glorify drug usage in their songs?
