The late American rapper Juice WRLD‘s second posthumous LP, Fighting Demons, is due next month, December 2021.
Juice WRLD was the Chicago-based American rapper who was born on December 2, 1998, and passed away on December 8, 2019, two days after his birthday. He was 21 and died as a result of toxic levels of oxycodone and codeine.
Throughout his career in the rap world, Juice WRLD released two solo studio albums. Debuted with Goodbye & Good Riddance in 2018, his second album was released in 2020 and named Death Race For Love.
Juice WRLD was honored by three different awards among numerous nominations. Those were iHeartRadio Music Awards’ Best Hip-Hop Album for Death Race for Love, Billboard Music Awards’ Top New Artist, and American Music Awards’ Favorite Male Artist – Rap/Hip-Hop for himself.
However, Thursday afternoon (November 11), it was announced via the late rapper’s social channels that his second posthumous album was named Fighting Demons and is set to arrive in December 2021.
The video started with words that say Juice WRLD shared his own struggle against anxiety, depression, and more.
“You are not your struggles. Addiction, anxiety, depression do not define you,” a message reads at the early seconds of the video. ”One of the greatest artists of our generation shared his own battle.”

The trailer featured a piece of clips of the late rapper. Some of those moments were the musician’s road experiences, fan meetings, studio recordings, as well as opening up about his own mental health struggles. The rapper has also mentioned his goal to help people in similar situations.
According to the musician, people thinks you are crazy if you have anxiety.
“Me talking about certain things can help somebody else …” Juice WRLD says in the video. “If you feel like you have anxiety or depression, they’re gonna look at you like you’re crazy. That’s not how it should be, but that’s how it is, and that needs to change.”
Juice WRLD‘s Fighting Demons was not the first album that was released after the musician passed away. Juice WRLD‘s first posthumous album was named Legends Never Die and was released in 2020.
