Lil Bibby signed Juice WRLD to his first record contract and played a big role in his life.
According to Bibby, he had gotten Juice WRLD to agree to go to rehab before he ODed.
“This is confidential. We already had him signed up for rehab,” Bibby told DJ Vlad. “He agreed to go. Because that was like pulling teeth with him.”
Vlad then wondered if there was a catylst to get Juice help.
“He was taking one and half pills [of percocets], and I thought that was crazy. Because all of my homies, like Herb and all of them, are only taking one or half. So one and a half? I'm looking like what the f*ci. But then I found out that he was doing four Percocets. So I get to freaking out. Like ‘What the f*ck.’ I get to telling people like ‘Look we got to send this kid to rehab. I'm freaking out. I'm telling everybody form the label. I’m telling everyone because I’m thinking ‘That’s a lot.’ Because all the people I know only do at the max one. And these is the 30s. Four of those. I'm thinking that's crazy," Bibby said.
"Then we found out he was doing more than four. The week before he passed. I'm not even going to say the number because it would freak you out."
Bibby went on to say there was an intervention and Juice begrudgingly said he would go to rehad.
‘Alright, I’ll go. I’ll go,’” Bibby remembered. “‘But I’m not stopping.’ Like, ‘I’ll lower my dosage. But I like doing it too much.’”
