Juice WRLD recently sat down with Billboard to discuss how he crafted his song “Lucid Dreams” as part of the “How It Went Down” video series.
The rapper explains that he wrote the song in his family room when he was a senior in high school. He began with the chorus, then moved on to a verse, and continued writing pieces until he assembled them together like a puzzle.
Once Juice WRLD went to the studio, it only took him 20 minutes or so to record the track. “It wasn’t rushed,” he says. “I remember it was storming pretty bad that day…I think the power almost went out or something, it was crazy.”
