Juice WRLD’s estate is finally releasing new music from the late rapper.
Today (April 23), Juice’s mother Carmela Wallace revealed in a social media post that her son’s first posthumous single will be dropping tonight.
“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.”
Wallace then revealed the title of the new single.
“Tonight we will be releasing a song called ‘Righteous’ which Juice made from his home studio in Los Angeles. We hope you enjoy this new music and continue to keep Juice’s spirit alive. Stay safe everyone.”
A version of “Righteous” leaked online last year. In the song, he raps, “All white Gucci suit, I’m feeling righteous, yeah/ I know that the truth is hard to digest, yeah/ Five or six pills in my right hand, yeah/ Codeine runneth over on my nightstand/ Takin’ medicine to fix all of the damage/ My anxiety the size of a planet (Yeah, ooh)/ Holes in my skull, over time/ My heart’s over ice (Woah).”
It is unclear if tonight’s release will be the same as the leaked record or a different version.
Yesterday (April 22), Wallace announced that she created the Live Free 999 fund to help other young people who struggle with mental health issues.
The fund will provide support to programs that address addiction, depression and anxiety and strive towards normalizing the conversation surrounding those topics, especially in underserved communities. It will also support programs that offer positive avenues for people to process their mental health issues.
