As with most artists who pass away unexpectedly, Juice WRLD was hoarding a massive vault of unreleased music at the time of his death. In fact, the total is a staggering 2,000 songs that the rapper had recorded at some point during his short musical career. Juice passed away in early December from an accidental overdose that occurred during a search of his luggage at Midway Airport in Chicago.
Now, according to TMZ, his team is trying to figure out how to get those tracks out to the world. One posthumous track has already hit the charts, his collaboration with Detroit rapper, Eminem titled, “Godzilla,” from Em’s latest album, “Music To Be Murdered By.” The track has already reached the number 1 spot in U.K. charts, highlighting the desire for additional unreleased music to make its way to fans airways. Mystery music leakers somehow got their hands on 26 of Juice’s unreleased songs before posting them online last week. The tracks were quickly removed from the internet.
Juice’s family released a statement last week via his Instagram promising to release any unreleased music.
While we will never have the chance to see the beloved Chicago rapper perform another hit, at least we can find comfort new Juice WRLD tunes hitting the streets soon.
