PTSD which dropped yesterday, deals with mental health, trauma and loss, and features 50 faces of people important to G Herbo who died, including Juice WRLD. The album’s title track also features the late rapper on the hook. In this recent interview, Herbo remarked on Juice WRLD’s lasting impact.
Speaking of the “Lucid Dreams” rapper who tragically passed away last December, G Herbo said, “That’s my lil’ brother man, I think about him every single day.” When asked what Juice WRLD meant to him he answered, “I be saying…like, I don’t know ’cause I’m in New York y’all probably ain’t gonna like me saying this, but I think what Juice was to our generation—the impact that he had on us—is what Biggie did for New York for real. I really think he had that Biggie Pac effect in his short time here.”
“He helped people. … When I met that kid he had it in his eyes already, he wasn’t trying to chase the glory, he wasn’t doing none of the stuff he was doing because he was famous,” Herbo explained. “Inside out, he did what made him happy, and with him being himself he got a real legacy that’s gonna live on forever. That’s what I mean by that.”
