Juice WRLD frequently worked with Canadian producers: Boi-1da, Murda Beatz, Frank Dukes & more
During his relatively short but storied career, Chicago recording artist Juice WRLD released several projects that employed the services of Canadian producers. Several have already taken to social media to pay their respects.
This past March, Juice released his sophomore studio album which featured production by Boi-1da (“Maze” and “Make Believe”), Don Mills (“Maze”), and Frank Dukes (“Fast”). The album also sampled Toronto singer Daniel Caesar’s “Who Hurt You?” for the Arin Ray and Camden Bench-produced “10 Feet.”
Several months earlier, Juice WRLD had teamed up with Freebandz frontman Future for the collaborative mixtape, Future & Juice Wrld Present… Wrld on Drugs. The 16-track project featured project from a ton of dope producers including Canadians Murda Beatz (“Red Bentley” featuring Young Thug), Frank Dukes (“Make It Back”), and CVRE (“Make It Back”).
In June 2018, Juice released a song called “Legends” as a tribute to the late rappers XXXTentacion and Lil Peep. In the Russell Chell and Take A Daytrip-produced record, he eerily prophecizes his own passing with the lyrics “What’s the 27 Clu-u-u-ub? We ain’t making it past 21.”.
Juice WRLD’s passing was initially reported earlier today by TMZ. It was reported that he Juice had passed away at the hospital after suffering a seizure at the airport shortly after his flight had landed.
Rest In Peace, Juice WRLD.
