Kid Cudi Voices His Frustrations With Juice WRLD’s Team After “INSANO” Collaboration Falls Through

In just about a week, Cleveland, Ohio rapper and singer Kid Cudi, will be dropping his 10th project, INSANO. Over the past couple of weeks, we have received some exciting updates on the details of the project. We have come to learn the feature list, producing credits, as well as the release date. Fans can expect the album to hit all streaming platforms on Friday, January 12, presumably at midnight. So far, quite a few singles have been rolled out.

Cudi put out a two-pack on Soundcloud, “ILL WHAT I BLEED/MOST AIN’T DENNIS.” We also got “PORSCHE TOPLESS,” as well as “AT THE PARTY” with two of several guests Travis Scott and Pharrell Williams. The hitmaker is also including Pusha T, Wiz Khalifa, Lil Yachty, and ASAP Rocky. Juice WRLD was going to make the cut too. But, according to HipHopDX, it looks like that fell through.

Kid Cudi Calls Out Juice WRLD’s Estate, But Things Seem To Be OK?

Cudster put out a tweet that read, “Hey gang, so I never heard back from Juice team, they said we could use it on my album and they would use it on his, but his team went ghost when we reached out and its been months so it wont be on the deluxe. I tried but u know, whatever [shrugging emoji] not me.” However, the master hummer posted an Instagram story screenshot from Peter Jideonwo. He is Juice’s former manager but is still involved with his team.

Peter replied to Cudi, saying, “Song is cleared for @kidcudi but since it’s on the party never ends [Juice’s next album] it can’t come out till the release. It can be added to [Cudi’s] album after that happens since his album has to come out now.” He goes on, “No one is ignoring or not responding to him. He knows this information and that’s the deal.” The rapper was made aware of this by a random Twitter user and it seems all things are good now. Cudi writes back, “First me hearin this. Never was told it cant come out til his album does. Thats cool tho. We have answers. Power of a tweet.” So, maybe we will get it after all? We will have to wait and see.

Juice WRLD, Eminem, & Benny Blanco’s ‘Lace It’ Song Is A Grim Examination Of Drug Addiction’s Lethal Grip

Accidental deaths involving drug use have sky-rocketed around the world. This tragic epidemic has been especially noticeable in hip-hop. On Saturday, December 16, Eminem and Benny Blanco latest single, which features a posthumous feature from the late Juice Wrld, dives into this heartbreaking reality.

On “Lace It,” the musicians paint a picture of drug addiction’s lethal grip worldwide that led to Juice WRLD’s death in 2019. Eminem has spoken about his recovery across several projects, and in his verse, he turns his attention to the younger generation seeking help:

“Tried to kill me then you murdered Jarad didn’t you / Piece of sh*t thanks to you now we lost Gangsta Boo and Pimp C, Prince, and Michael / Mixing Nyquil with prescription Vic’s addiction’s like a f*cking vicious cycle / Juice we will forever miss you / To the younger generation, I ain’t lecturing you but man just be careful when you.”

Benny Blanco took to his official Instagram to share a touching note about the track. “People always say things like ‘This song means a lot to me’ or ‘It changed my life’ when discussing a piece of music they’re listening to,” he wrtoe. “‘Lace It’ truly gives that a new meaning to me because the day we recorded was also the last time I ever saw Juice. Every day, that moment gets further away, and I’d trade this or any other song we did to have him back.”

Juice WRLD, Eminem, And Benny Blanco Release Powerful Song About Addiction With “Lace It”

Wow. Not many were expecting this. Juice WRLD, Eminem, and producer benny blanco have just stunned the music world. Back in 2020, the legendary artists from Chicago and Missouri united (in a posthumous manner) for “Godzilla.” That track calls Music To Be Murdered By home. However, this single, fresh off the presses may we add, belongs to Juice and his team.

All three have just come together for “Lace It,” presumedly the second single from Jarad Higgins’ last album, The Party Never Ends. According to the Genius page, there is also an unreleased song with Kid Cudi, “All Life Long (Good Time),” that will land on it. There is no release date for the LP but is expected sometime next year. On the annotation for “Lace It,” the single was supposed to be released on Friday, December 15. However, there were issues with the legal team.

Then, Juice’s co-manager, Lil Bibby sent this message out the same day of the initial drop date on Instagram. He said, “200 phone calls to get this song to y’all!! Hope you appreciate it cuz I hate talking that much…. The Party Never Ends coming soon!! Big Thank you to Eminem and Benny on this one!! Let the Party Start.” The song has nearly 100,000 views on YouTube in its first two hours and there is good reason for that. It is a very deep cut about struggling with drug addiction, which as we well know, took Juice’s life at the young age of 21. Juice’s final lyrics are very chilling and emotional but also have us excited for his last body of work. “Me? I can never ever die, can never ever die.”

But that ain’t what you meant when you said that
You’re in it for the perks (Nah, damn)

Juice WRLD Turns 25: He Had Everyone Enamored With What He Would Eventually Become On “Lucid Dreams”

Not every rapper who touches a microphone is destined to leave behind a lasting impact on the genre. There are just some who have a little extra something that almost every listener can get behind. One of those names was Juice WRLD. Born in the talent-rich city of Chicago back on December 2, 1998, Jarad Higgins was essentially an immediate success.

He broke through in 2018 with what many hip-hop heads and Juice fans would agree is his best album. It would be his debut LP, Goodbye & Good Riddance. It has almost officially been five years since its release on December 10. This may also be Juice’s hit-filled tracklist. You have tracks such as “All Girls Are The Same,” “Wasted” with Lil Uzi Vert, “Lean Wit Me,” and countless more. But, without a doubt, “Lucid Dreams” is Jarad’s magnum opus.

It was the song that put him on the map. Especially, with Lyrical Lemonade assisting in the production of the music video, it was a surefire mega song. It turned out to be just that, with over 942 million views on YouTube, 2.3 plus billion streams on Spotify, and going Diamond in February of 2022. It was so difficult to choose just one song that encapsulates what Juice meant and still means for hip-hop. But, that in and of itself is why he is such an icon and will be forever entrenched in the lore of the genre. Juice would have turned 25 today and we at HNHH wanted to remember him for everything he has done. Our thoughts and prayers continue to go to his family and friends.

What were your initial thoughts on Juice WRLD’s hit song, “Lucid Dreams?” Where does this song rank for you amongst the rest of his biggest tracks? Will anyone else in the emo rap scene be able to replicate the impact he has left behind? We would like to hear what you have to say about all of this.

Quotable Lyrics:

I still see your shadows in my room
Can’t take back the love that I gave you
It’s to the point where I love and I hate you
And I cannot change you, so I must replace you, oh
Easier said than done, I thought you were the one
Listenin’ to my heart instead of my head

Juice Wrld Estate Faces Lawsuit From Producer Over Alleged Non-Payment

Juice Wrld

PD Beats, a producer who contributed to Juice Wrld’s posthumous album Legends Never Die, has initiated a copyright lawsuit against producer Dr. Luke. The legal dispute is underscored by the tragic passing of the late rapper in December 2019. It focuses on PD Beats’ claims regarding the track “Not Enough,” including his writing and significant […]

Young Thug, Nicki Minaj, And Juice WRLD Are A Lucrative Combo On ‘Money’ From The ‘Business Is Business’ Deluxe

Just days after releasing the Young Thug album Business Is Business, the project’s producer Metro Boomin shared a deluxe edition reissue, subtitled “Metro’s Version.” Here, the tracklist is rearranged and two new songs have been added — “Sake Of My Kids” and “Money” featuring Juice WRLD and Nicki Minaj. The latter track turns out to be especially poignant, as it reunites the incarcerated Thug with the late Juice WRLD, giving fans a glimpse of what that joint album they were supposedly working on in 2019 would have sounded like.

It also reconnects Nicki and Juice after he joined her European tour in 2018. Unfortunately, they were never able to collaborate with each other, but she paid tribute to him with her Billboard Women In Music Game Changer Award acceptance speech, calling him a “kindred spirit.” Of course, Nicki and Thug had previously teamed up on a remix of one of Thug’s early hits, “Danny Glover,” as well as on Elton John’s 2021 Lockdown Sessions cut, “Always Love You.”

Meanwhile, Metro Boomin has been on a stellar run himself, dropping the awesome Spider-Man: Across The Spider-Verse soundtrack just about six months after releasing the well-received Heroes & Villains.

You can listen to “Money” above and check out Metro’s Version of Business Is Business here.

Nicki Minaj Discusses Young Thug & Juice WRLD Collab On IG Live, Invites JT To Talk About Big-Chested Problems

2022 gave us a taste of the long-awaited Nicki Minaj comeback, but that had nothing compared to what the Queen artist plans to deliver later this year. Back in the spring, she confirmed that her next studio album is coming this October, and from the singles we’ve heard so far, Minaj is sure to come through with her usual hard-hitting lyricism that will leave listeners doing double takes before laughing. On Monday (June 26), she surprised The Barbz with yet another must-listen collaborative effort, this one with Young Thug and the late Juice WRLD.

“Money” hit streamers after social media lit up with an Instagram Story interaction between the two creatives. Following the debut, Minaj hopped on Live to discuss working with the YSL leader, among other things. “We can’t not have Thug,” she told followers tuning in. “I didn’t realize… I think a lot of people didn’t realize how important Young Thug is to the culture of rap. We really need him home, like this man is a different level of talent,” the mother of one declared.

Nicki Minaj Goes Live to Celebrate New Music

Elsewhere during her stream, Minaj invited JT (who’s been in the headlines for reasons of her own lately) to join her for a quick chat. The two chopped it up about plenty of hot topics – namely the difficulties of having large breasts. As you may recall, the Trinidadian hinted in an IG post earlier this month that she followed through on her plants to undergo a reduction after giving birth to Papa Bear.

The City Girl certainly didn’t hold back when discussing the woes of being a big-chested woman, but she did bite her tongue when it came to her viral BET Awards spat with Lil Uzi Vert. According to online gossip, JT threw her phone at her partner after he was chatting with Ice Spice during the event. However, the “Piñata” artist’s camp has since denied these claims, which you can read more about at the link below.

Juice WRLD And Cordae’s ‘Doomsday’ Video Puts Deepfake Technology To Mind-Bending Good Use

Generally, I find all the deepfakes and AI use in music today — especially when it comes to deceased artists’ posthumous releases — ethically iffy, if not downright creepy. I’m willing to make an exception for Lyrical Lemonade’s off-the-wall “Doomsday” collab between Juice WRLD and Cordae, though. For one, Juice and Cordae were very tight in real life, and for another, both were extremely close with director Cole Bennett, who was instrumental to both of their careers.

But mostly, it’s because the project came out super tight, which is something you can’t always say for similar works. In this case, we get another opportunity to hear both young rappers at the respective heights of their game — something they got too few chances to give us while Juice was alive — as well as to hear Juice really rapping. Also, the deepfake effect in the video is used in a creative way, allowing Cordae to perform for the both of them as he morphs back and forth between his own face and Juice’s.

Eminem, whose song “Role Model” is sampled here, even makes an appearance at the beginning of the video and his association with Cordae and Juice is just enough to make you wonder whether it’s more digital trickery, or really the man himself showing love to the younger rappers (and Cole, who directed his “Godzilla” video).

Check out the “Doomsday” video above.

Juice WRLD And Cordae Team Up On New Single, “Doomsday”

Juice WRLD just released another posthumous collaboration. This time, he teamed up with Cordae. Renowned music video director and influential creator Cole Bennett has entered into a partnership with Def Jam Recordings. Many may know him from his friendship with the late Juice WRLD or for his company Lyrical Lemonade. As part of this collaboration, Lyrical Lemonade has released its debut single titled “Doomsday.” The track features a highly anticipated and previously unreleased collaboration between Juice WRLD and Cordae. The music video for the single is now available, as well.

When asked about the release, Cordae expressed his tribute to Juice WRLD. “Long Live Juice WRLD,” the rapper said simply. Both Cole Bennett and Cordae built up anticipation for the release through social media posts. This includes the interesting short film “whyrush?” directed by Bennett. This generated excitement and speculation among Lyrical Lemonade’s large subscriber community. Additionally, it excited the wider hip-hop culture.

Juice WRLD And Cordae Shine Together On “Doomsday”

“Doomsday” is a captivating track that brings together the Grammy-nominated rapper Cordae and the late Juice WRLD. It features their skillful wordplay and thought-provoking verses. They are set to music over the iconic Dr. Dre-produced beat of Eminem’s “Role Model.” The song showcases both rapper’s distinct style in a powerful collaboration. The accompanying music video was, of course, directed by Cole Bennett. It creates a visually stunning spectacle, utilizing technology to seamlessly transform Cordae into Juice WRLD and vice versa. All of this happens while chaos unfolds around them.

For those who don’t know, the release of “Doomsday” sets the stage for something much larger. Lyrical Lemonade’s upcoming debut full-length album is scheduled to be released later this year. Given the exciting nature of the first single, it’s likely that there will be quite a bit more to look forward to. Fans can anticipate the release more exciting collaborations in the near future. What do you think of the new single? Be sure to sound off in the comments and let us know! Stay tuned to HNHH for the latest updates on Juice WRLD.

Quotable Lyrics:

I smoke ten Js with two hoes that go both ways

Speakin’ of foreplay, had this shit in the hallway with
A nun on Sunday, I guess I’m just too blessed
