Joyner Lucas was willing to assess blame in the wake of Juice WRLD's death from a purported drug overdose.
Juice wrld was 21. He was a product of our generation of rappers who glorified drugs and made it cool. Im blaming Yal niggaz for this shit. 🤦🏽♂️ all that lean and pills niggaz glorify and talk about. You teaching the kids to do it. Smh you happy now?Rip @JuiceWorlddd. Gone too soon— Joyner Lucas (@JoynerLucas) December 9, 2019
“Juice wrld was 21. He was a product of our generation of rappers who glorified drugs and made it cool,” Joyner tweeted. “Im blaming Yal n****z for this sh*t. [All] that lean and pills n****z glorify and talk about. You teaching the kids to do it. Smh you happy now? Rip @JuiceWorlddd. Gone too soon.”
Chicago rapper G Herbo was tight with Juice and was among the crowd Lucas seems to be blaming for the 21-year old's death. Herbo lashed out at Lucas in the comments:
"He a fucking clown," he said of Lucas. "N*ggas don't know what n*ggas going thru! N*ggas ain't' tryna be cool shorty was on top of the world you think he was tryna fit in??? If that sh*t was easy shorty would have quit!! Shorty ain't seen none of that sh*t coming," Herbo typed, and then spoke on his own struggles with addiction. "I can speak on this sh*t on & on man but this sh*t always deeper than what you see so don't speak on SH*T if you can't say I once done it or I RELATE to it!"
Who's in the right here? Lucas did respond to Herbo's message:
