Rapper Juice WRLD had a huge cache of unreleased music at the time of his death and now his team is considering releasing a posthumous album that will include some of them, according to TMZ.
Sources told TMZ that the rapper, whose real name was Jarad Anthony Higgins, had about 2,000 unreleased songs. His team is currently involved in discussions and considering proposals on how to best pay tribute to him. One of the proposals being considered is a posthumous music release.
Juice WRLD had 2,000 unreleased songs
Juice WRLD was able to amass a massive collection of unreleased music because he spent a lot of his time composing and recording new songs. Although he took great care to guard against his unreleased tracks being leaked, 26 of the songs surfaced online about a week ago and his team had to scramble to quickly remove them from the Internet.
It is believed that the leaked tracks were among those he downloaded to hard drives before he died.
The latest revelation about Juice WRLD’s massive cache of unreleased songs comes after his family and Grade A Management released a message that they plan to honor him by sharing some of his unreleased music.
“You guys meant the world to Juice and by listening to his music, watching his videos, and sharing your stories about him, you are keeping his memory alive forever.”
Juice WRLD: Cause of death
Juice died on December 8 after he and his entourage landed at Chicago’s Midway International Airport on a private jet flight from Los Angeles’ Van Nuys Airport. Federal agents and Chicago Police officers met the rapper and his entourage at the airport to conduct a search of his luggage.
He was pronounced dead at the hospital.
The Cook County medical examiner’s office later ruled that Juice’s death was due to an accidental overdose of oxycodone and codeine.
