Juice WRLD is regarded as a pioneer in the emo-rap and SoundCloud rap genres, which gained mainstream attention in the mid-late 2010s. With the way technology works in the music industry, it’s nearly impossible to avoid song leaks. The late Juice WRLD’s music has been leaked all over the internet, and it’s becoming a bigger problem.
DJ Akademiks shared a Twitter DM exchange between Lil Bibby and an unidentified account about all the song leaks. Bibby claims that he may be cancelling Juice’s upcoming posthumous album The Party Never Ends. “These leaks is getting out of hand,” the rapper-turned-executive wrote in the DM. “I Hope all the fans are happy, the party never ends might be canceled if all this sh*t leaks.”
Juice WRLD joined Lil Bibby’s Grade A Productions label in 2017, and the label has been dealing with leaks ever since the “Lucid Dreams” rapper died of a drug overdose in 2019. The problem has gotten so bad that Juice WRLD’s mother, Carmella Wallace, has spoken out.
“I understand they loved him. They loved his music, but there’s a proper way to do it,” she told XXL in December. “Let us give you our best. Leaked music is not necessarily cleaned up music, it’s just leaked, it’s not finished.”
“So, it’s just a lot of work just going into it. It’s a bit disrespectful to him, honestly, to leak his music like that. But I know that monster is there, been there and it’s not going anywhere. We can just do our part and put out good music. He made a lot of good music.”
The Party Never Ends, which is set to be released later this year, will be Juice WRLD’s third posthumous album, following Legends Never Die in 2020 and Fighting Demons in 2021. To get the latest updates, keep an eye on Thirsty.
