Juice WRLD’s mother talks about how much Eminem fan he was




Two weeks after Juice WRLD ’s 25th birthday — and a week after the four-year anniversary of his death — his estate has shared first single of The Party Never Ends album, called “Lace It,” featuring Eminem, produced by Benny Blanco.

Both hip-hop artists warn of the dangers of drugs over their respective verses, with Eminem — who survived his own battle with addiction — listing some of his musical peers that didn’t make it: Lil Peep, Ol’ Dirty Bastard, Shock G, Pimp C, Prince, and Michael Jackson.

“I was lucky, my escape was narrow and due / Now think I take it for granted / That I’m still here, synthetic heroin you tried to kill me, then you murdered Jarad, didn’t you? Addiction’s like a f–kin’ vicious cycle / Juice, we will forever miss you / To the younger generation, I ain’t lecturin’ you, but man just be careful when you…” – raps Eminem during his verse.

“Lace It” marks the second posthumous collaboration between Eminem and Juice WRLD. The first one was “Godzilla” from Eminem’s 2020 album, Music To Be Murdered By. As far as Benny Blanco, him and Juice have worked on a handful of tracks together prior to Higgins’ death, including “Roses,” “Black & White,” “Graduation,” and the posthumous “Real S–t.”

In a statement with Rolling Stone magazine, Jared’s mother Carmela Wallace said of “Lace It”: “I can recall Jarad playing Eminem’s music on repeat at home because he was a huge fan. This is a bittersweet moment for me; I am happy that Jarad had a chance to make music with someone he admired and sad that he cannot be here to take in the moment; Jarad left us way too soon.”

Juice WRLD died of a drug-related seizure back in December 2019 at the age of 21. Four months later, the rapper’s mother Carmela Wallace announced the establishment of the Live Free 999 Fund, which aims to support young people in their battles with anxiety, addiction, and depression.
