Lil Bibby says that Juice WRLD has one most posthumous album on the way.

Lil Bibby says that Juice WRLD's final posthumous album is currently in the works. The Grade A Productions founder revealed the plans for a third project from the late rapper on Instagram, Saturday.

"The Last Juice WRLD Album is in the works," Bibby wrote, before explaining, "We want this album to feel like a Celebration/Party! Let’s celebrate the life of Juice. No more mourning, I want everyone that Juice loved while he was here to help celebrate, especially his fans who he loved! You guys have been the best fans an artist can have (Minus the death threats to Bibby). I’m not gonna complain but I’ll jus say this is not easy. We miss you, We love you 999 til the world ends." The statement captions a slow-motion video of Juice WRLD in the studio.

Juice WRLD's last posthumous album, Fighting Demons, released back in 2021. The 22-track project saw the late rapper collaborate with Trippie Redd, Polo G, Justin Beiber, and BTS. His first album released following his death, Legends Never Die, dropped a year earlier. That effort featured the Weeknd, Trippie Redd, Marshmello, Polo G, the Kid Laroi, and Halsey.

Juice died back in 2019 of an accidental overdose of codeine and oxycodone. He had been flying from Van Nuys Airport in Los Angeles to Midway International Airport in Chicago. Juice was notified that law enforcement officials were waiting to search the plane when it landed. He then shallowed multiple Percocet pills to hide them from police and began convulsing and seizing. He was then transported to a nearby hospital and pronounced dead at the age of 21.

Bibby didn't provide any further details about the upcoming album from Juice WRLD. However, it will be his final project. The announcement comes after news broke that Opus Music Group quietly purchased Juice WRLD's catalog for a nine-figure deal, last year. The deal entails 90% of his master income interest and 90% of publishing ownership. Check out Lil Bibby's Juice WRLD announcement on Instagram below.
