Twitter lit up to commemorate the late rapper Juice WRLD. Three years after his death, the Chicago native would have celebrated his 24th birthday on Dec. 2, as he died six days after turning 21.
To honor the late “Legend Never Die” rapper, SOHH replayed all of his epic albums. At the end of the music sesh, we’ve collected our top five songs that echo the 2010s Soundcloud era.
These songs blended well with the production and hip-hop styles with lyrical nuances and aesthetics in emo rock, but they certified Juice WRLD as the father of emo rap:
This is the song where Juice declared evil girls had the prettiest face. Talk about the heartbreak song for the ages — if you had your heart broken, this song hits differently between tears.
All Girls Are The Same
The melody that started the movement, “All Girls Are The Same,” was his first song to debut on the Billboard Hot 100 and attributed to the reason Juice signed to Interscope Records label.
This song was leaked in 2020 and later appeared in his posthumous album, Legends Never Die. Play this on rotation at your own risk.
Flaws and Sins
Who said there wasn’t a little romance in emo rap? “Flaws and Sins” are from the second album, Death Race For Love, and perhaps less about depression and more about being in love and in a relationship.
Lean Wit Me
Dark and vulnerable, “Lean Wit Me” can leave a person feeling as if they were in a room screaming at the top of their lungs, but no one could hear.
They say legends die young. Kirshnik Khari Ball, known to the world as Takeoff, one-third of the Grammy-nominated group Migos sadly lost his life on November 1, 2022. Takeoff along with his uncle and cousin, changed and influenced the sound of music since they stepped on the scene 10 years ago.
