Sydney rapper The Kid Laroi just dropped his new track and video “GO!” — a posthumous collaboration with his late friend,  Juice WRLD.

The Kid Laroi has been very outspoken about his close relationship with the deceased rapper since supporting Juice on his final tour last year and teased a collaboration months ago. Ahead of the single’s anticipated release, Laroi took to Instagram to deliver a heartfelt message.

“It’s been a little over 6 months since you been gone, and it still doesn’t feel right,” Laroi wrote in the caption. “I got to learn from a real-life legend. It’s not even in my character to write long ass shit like this but fuck it our song is about to come out and I just wanna say how much I wish you were here with me to enjoy this shit. we all love and miss you back here.”

The song dropped with an accompanying music video directed by frequent Juice WRLD collaborator Steve Cannon. The visual kicks off with footage of Juice saying he would collaborate on the song as a birthday gift to Laroi: “I can make a hit for your birthday. I’ll give you a verse,” Juice says. “That’s like a $200,000 gift, lil bro.”
