Juice Wrld tragically passed away in December of 2019. The complicated life of the rapper was brought to an end due to a history of prescription drug abuse. Juice routinely discussed the perils and pitfalls of addiction and mental illness in his lyrics.
Carmella Wallace is the mother of the late Juice Wrld. Wallace recently appeared on The Tamron Hall Show to talk about the life and work of her son. Carmella believes he was hanging out with a group of enablers who were not looking out for Juice Wrld’s best interests.
“I just felt like his best interest wasn’t being looked out for. I think people had their own agendas. I think they liked the lifestyle. And they were young too, so I have to give them that.”
They’re young so they don’t see things the way we would see it, but I just think that he just didn’t have the people in place to just tell him to stop or to know [what was wrong]. He just didn’t have that support system in place.”
Juice Wrld’s mother isnt the first person who has accused hangers-on of endangering the lives of famous rappers. Lil Xan has accused his former manager of the same thing. The lifestyle can be a draw for irresponsibly behaving people if they aren’t kept in check.
Substance abuse has been a problem for years in the rap game. Juice Wrld joins a growing list of stars including Mac Miller who left us way too soon due to their demons. Carmella Wallace is hoping to shed some light on this very dangerous topic.
