In Hip Hop by Jessica Salter

One of Chicago’s hottest new rappers Juice Wrld has dropped his debut album ‘Goodbye and Good Riddance’ after the his two singles ‘Lucid Dreams’ and ‘All Girls are the Same’ debuted on the billboard top 100 simultaneously, with the latter’s visuals (directed by the popular Cole Bennett) generating over 20 million views on YouTube.

The newly signed Interscope artist’s style of music fits perfectly in with the current climate of the rap scene, he can be compared to the likes of Lil Yachty and Post Malone however there is more resemblance to the late Swedish rapper Lil Peep and even xxxtentation, as he has that emo rap sound and content to match.

The intro sets the tone of the heartbreak themed project with a skit of a woman telling him not to contact her again, alongside the ‘lovely’ instrumental by Billie Ellish and Khalid in the background. The third official single ‘Lean Wit Me’ cotinues with melancholic theme with Juice disussing his struggle with drug addiction and the affects it is having on his life.

In a recent interview Juice explained that ‘I’m just trying to make music to help people through their situations,’ with this emotional stance he looks like he is on his way to achieving this and there is definable room for him in the industry.
