While the hip-hop world comes to grips with the untimely death of Juice WRLD, Lil Nas X has remembered the young artist with a music tribute.
Performing at the Jingle Ball in San Francisco on Sunday (Dec. 8), the “Old Town Road” rapper covered Juice WRLD’s signature song, “Lucid Dreams.”
Footage captured and shared on social media shows the late Juice WRLD’s image face projected onto a screen behind the Atlanta artist.
Earlier, Lil Nas X joined the chorus of fans and fellow musicians who remembered the rapper. “So sad how often this is happening lately to young talented rising artists,” he tweeted.
Juice WRLD (real name Jarad Anthony Higgins) died after reportedly suffering a seizure at Chicago's Midway Airport following a flight from Los Angeles. He was 21.
During his relatively short career, Juice impacted the Billboard Hot 100 on 25 occasions, led by the No. 2-peaking "Lucid Dreams."
