Juice WRLD was one of the most gifted artists at his age. His passing carved a hole in hip-hop’s future, but his works remain as one of the best pieces of music in the modern era of Trap and Hip-Hop. Just to cement that statement, his breakout song is now 10x diamond certified.
Lil Bibby, the former manager of the late Juice WRLD, revealed on Twitter that the 999 club has plenty of reasons to celebrate this weekend. Juice WRLD had his first Diamond Award from the RIAA. The Goodbye & Good Riddance track officially crossed the 10 million units sold mark.
Apart from “Lucid Dreams” there are other songs of his that have had major success in the US and all over the world. All Girls Are the Same” is currently 6x-Platinum, “Robbery” is 5x-Platinum, and “Lean wit Me” is 4x-Platinum. This just goes to show the amount of talent Juice had in him and what could have been if he were still here.
When it come store albums, 2018’s Goodbye & Good Riddance reached 3x-Platinum status. Juice WRLD’s 2019 sophomore LP, Death Race for Love, is currently certified 2x-Platinum. The posthumous 2020 project Legends Never Die is also 2x-Platinum.
Juice WRLD was back in the headlines in recent months following the release of the Tommy Oliver-directed documentary Juice WRLD: Into the Abyss. The HBO film served as an unofficial companion piece to 2021’s Fighting Demons album. It featured appearances by Lil Bibby, Polo G, G Herbo, Ski Mask the Slump God, Cole Bennett, The Kid Laroi, and other close associates of Juice.
Juice’s passing away has put a lot of light on the mental awareness of artists and their coping mechanisms. It’s sad that we had to lose him to get to the bottom of such events.
