Future and Juice WRLD's "WRLD On Drugs" arrives tonight.
Some would say that Juice WRLD and Future have a lot in common. While their music is stylistically different, their lyrical content is almost identical at times. Both have a tendency to rap and sing about their emotions and relationships, throwing in a slew of drug references as they self-medicate. Some of Future's most popular songs have been about drug use and, similarly, some of Juice's most buzzing tracks are drugged out. It makes sense that the two would be teaming up to collaborate on a full project. We just didn't expect to be receiving it this soon.
The two have been hanging out a lot recently, posting up for photos on Instagram, but we weren't aware of their collaborative effort WRLD On Drugs until a few days ago. Almost out of nowhere, the Chicago and Atlanta forces announced they were mixing their vibes to deliver a new project, which will be arriving tonight. The tracklist and cover art have both been revealed and the duo is working to tease the masses now, posting a video to entice listeners to tune in at midnight.
Using a video of an old television set cycling through reports about addiction, cartoons and other programs, Future and Juice chose to use a few famous soundbites about drug use and abuse to get the message across. Most notably, the pair included a recent rant as told by Kanye West, as he explained that he was addicted to opiates and got liposuction so he could look good "for y'all."
Who knows if Kanye signed off on his inclusion... The project is set to be an interesting and introspective take on addiction in its numerous forms. Watch the clip below, listen to the lead single "Fine China," and stay tuned for the full project tonight.
