To put it simply, this kid is awesome.

Meet Jarad Higgins, 19-year-old Chicago area rapper known more notably by the moniker Juice WRLD. To put it simply, this kid is awesome. Initial impressions of the artist may include adjectives such as “influenced,” “sad,” or just outright talented. His lyrics resemble that of XXX Tentacion, his autotuned high notes that of Lil Yachty, while his sound overall has a stark resemblance to Post Malone. With that being said, by no means is he a knockoff version of the three. He hones this medley of influence into a unique individual sound that epitomizes the emo-rap genre.

In March of 2018, Juice signed a deal with Interscope records after catching attention on tracks like “All Girls Are The Same” and “Lucid Dreams.” Since then he has only accelerated upwards, catching the ears of a diverse array of listeners. If you don’t believe me, “Lucid Dreams” has been on the Billboard Hot 100 for two weeks now, in its first week sitting at #74, but in its second week rocketing all the way up to #35. Similarly, his track “All Girls Are The Same” jumped 39 spots in one week, currently sitting at #53 in the Billboard Hot 100. Be on the lookout for more work from this young artist, as you are destined to hear his work somewhere. For now, listen to his first album Goodbye and Good Riddance and tell us your favorite track.
