Future Reflects on Juice Wrld’s Death and Influencing His Drug Use
In 2018, Juice Wrld did an interview with Vulture magazine where the young rapper admitted to trying lean after listening to Future rap about it.
Four months after Juice Wrld’s tragic death of an accidental drug overdose, Future is opening up about the late rapper. He told XXL in a new interview, “Still to this day, I’m heartbroke” adding, “He’s a great artist. He had so much more to do.”
But although Juice Wrld said, Future had apologized for that influence, the Atlanta star doesn’t feel a sense of guilt now that Juice is gone. He said, “It was so many people that came before me that talked about drugs from rock ’n’ roll stars to pop stars to people aware of other artists going to rehabs and aware of other artists’ overdose and there is so many other people that was a part of this world way before me.”
“Me having an influence on that, I just feel like…that is not my intentions,” he explains. “My intention was just to be me. I’m just being me and what you get from it is what you get from it, but at the same time, I wouldn’t want no one to go through anything to harm themself or to bring death to theyself and Juice Wrld is a touchy situation. I’m heartbroken by the whole thing. My heart goes out to his family, his mom.”
