Juice WRLD’s death was commemorated in December of this year, two years ago. In late 2019, the successful young rapper died after a heroin overdose at Chicago’s Midway International Airport. He was just 21 years old at the time. Prior to the anniversary, Ms. Carmella Wallace, the late rapper’s mother, wrote him a sorrowful birthday message on what would have been his 23rd birthday. She wrote, “You touched the world with honesty and integrity through your music.” “You conveyed a healing message and expressed a genuine desire to make a difference in the lives of others.“
Wallace talked up about Juice’s fight with addiction and how she regarded the support structure around him during a recent appearance on The Tamron Hall Show. She remarked, “I just felt like his best interests weren’t being looked after.” The lifestyle appealed to people who had their own agendas, according to me. And they were also young, so I have to give them credit for that. But I believe he didn’t have the people in place to warn him to stop or to realize [what was really wrong] because they were young and didn’t perceive things the way we would. But he didn’t have that kind of support system.
“I told him of my fears of him overdosing and encouraged him to speak to the psychologist I arranged for him to speak with,” she added. “But he was 19 and he knew everything. And the people around him, some of them would reach out to me. But not the inner, inner-circle.”
Wallace also mentioned a previous chat she had with Juice in which she was optimistic that he would be assisted. According to her, “I could notice a difference in him and that he wasn’t doing the lean.” Then he told me he was ready to get help. “I believe he was still taking drugs at the time. It was a one-of-a-kind experience. We just had that one moment when I knew he was going to pull through.”
