Juice WRLD’s family has released “Righteous,” the first posthumous single from the rapper who died of an accidental drug overdose last year. According to a statement from the family, the song was recorded at the rapper’s home studio in Los Angeles.
The statement also references the Live Free 999 Fund, a charitable organization which aims to help young people struggling with their mental health. The fund was established by the rapper’s mother, Carmela Wallace. Live Free 999 will focus on normalizing the conversation around addiction, anxiety and depression in underserved communities.
Juice WRLD died in December 2019 at age 21 after suffering a seizure at Midway Airport in Chicago. In a statement, Wallace confirmed that she was aware of his battle with addiction and mental health, and has chosen to share his story with the world in order to help those who may be in a similar situation.
