In a statement sent to Billboard, Mosey recalls kicking off his career last year on Juice WRLD’s World Domination Tour, where he served as an opener.
“Juice was my bro,” says Mosey. “He believed in me early and was always genuine. We toured the world together. Some of my favorite memories was just traveling to different cities. Big bro a legend and I’m forever grateful for him giving me the opportunity to tour with him.”
After Juice WRLD’s death, Mosey vowed to stop taking drugs in hopes of leading a better lifestyle. “I asked God to help me. Drugs won’t take me I promise & I’m done with them,” he tweeted. “I love y’all and pray for me.”

Two doses of Narcan were administered at the scene and Juice WRLD woke up, but was reportedly incoherent before being taken to Advocate Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn, where he was pronounced dead.
