Juice WRLD was due to headline Rolling Loud Festival in LA this weekend. Following his tragic death earlier this month, festival organizers chose to replace his slot with a tribute set.

The moving set included performances and tributes from Juice’s collaborators A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie, who performed “Demons And Angels,” and Ski Mask The Slump God who performed “Nuketown.” Producer Benny Blanco and video director Cole Bennett also shared their tributes.

Elsewhere, Juice’s girlfriend Ally Lotti delivered a heartfelt tribute to the 21-year-old rapper, A$AP Rocky played “Bandit” in the latter half of his set, and rapper YBN Cordae said Juice was like a brother to him. Keep scrolling to read our round-up of the tributes.

Juice’s girlfriend Ally Lotti

“I just wanted to let everyone know that Jarad loved every single person that he helped on this Earth…He literally loved every single one of you. He wants everyone to know that you need to take any negative thing in your life and change that to a positive situation. Change that to 999. You gotta keep that in your heart.”

“Today, we use the ‘brother’ word too loosely — but that’s the only word I can [use] describe my brother Juice WRLD…And he wasn’t just a brother to me, or to Mike [P] or to Cole [Bennet] or to Ski [Mask The Slump God] or to [DJ] Scheme. It’s clear, he was a brother, a counselor, a healer to everybody in the crowd. I can really feel his energy in the air tonight, his impact to hundreds of millions of people in the world.”

“One of Juice’s first shows had about 200 people in the crowd. What he would say if he knew that just two years later, there’d be 50,000 of you in the crowd for him.”

The tribute ended with Mike leading the crowd in a singalong of “Lucid Dreams,” as festival-goers raised their cellphones in the air.

A$AP Rocky paid his respects during his set

“So I just came from London today, and I’m not going to lie I feel sick as f–k, but when I came out here today, it was just a different boost of energy from y’all,” he said. “So, thank you. I just want to say being up here, being in L.A. after everything that’s been going on — Rest in peace Juice WRLD. I just want to tell you guys, I love you. We don’t get to tell you that enough. Thank you to those people who made me who I am. I might not be here tomorrow, so I just want to let you know I love you.”
