Rewatch Juice WRLD's 'How It Went Down'

As the music world continues to mourn the death of 21-year-old Juice WRLD, we at Billboard are looking back at a 2018 interview in which the rapper details his "Lucid Dreams" writing process.

The song, which peaked at No. 2 on the Billboard Hot 100, was written in his family room when he was a senior in high school. 

“Lucid dreaming is dreaming but you being aware that you’re doing it,” he explained of the song’s subject matter. “I feel as though if you’re able to control your dreams you have more power and control over your mind, like you could reach more areas of your mind. Therefore, I feel like it creates the ability for you to achieve more things in reality.”
