Juice WRLD ft. Young Thug "Bad Boy"

The track with Young Thug is an homage to the 1995 Martin Lawrence/Will Smith movie.

In his final video, "Bad Boy," Juice WRLD is joined by Young Thug for an homage to the iconic 1995 Will Smith/Martin Lawrence action comedy Bad Boys. The Cole-Bennett-directed clip opens with an inspiring voice-over from Juice, whose face is seen in the middle of a black screen looking up as he intones, "And make sure you know that we all human beings, we all on the same Earth, so with that being said, you can achieve anything if not more than what you see other people achieving. And that's facts."

A statement reveals that the Lyrical Lemonade-produced clip is the last official video filmed by Juice WRLD before his Dec. 2019 death by accidental overdose. “Will Smith and Martin Lawrence, I’m a bad boy/Went and got off my ass, and got to the cash/And got in my bag, boy, ” Juice raps on the chorus in the visual that ping-pongs between stark black and white and vibrant color close-ups of the pair rhyming in front of psychedelic swirls. “Please don’t think it’s sweet, I stay with the heat/Even though I’m a sad boy.”

Hopping in a tricked-out car to meet their connections in a shady warehouse, the pair confront a group of spooky figures, their Juggalo-like monochrome face paint dripping from their eyes like blood. "I've been drinking Red Razz boy (Red, yeah)/ I've been trappin' all these birds, McCoy (McCoy, brr, brr, brr, brr)," Thugger raps on the track with a grinding, distorted whirr over an insistent trap beat. "Newborn  baby, my Richard Mille in nine months, ooh/ Overseas, hundred scheme, b--ch, croissants (Yeah)."

Juice's estate dropped his posthumous album Legends Never Die in July and "Bad Boy" is the third single release since his death, following "Real S--t" featuring Benny Blanco and "Smile" with The Weeknd.
