G Herbo speaks.
Many artists have already issued statements and condolences in Juice WRLD's honor, and now G Herbo has come forward to speak on his friend's passing. Given his close relationship with his fellow Chicagoan, it's no surprise that Juice's passing hit Herbo particularly hard, and our thoughts and prayers go out to the mourning rapper. Today, Herbo issued a lengthy statement, reading like a heartbreaking open letter to Juice. "IDK WHAT TO SAY!" he begins. "BABY MICHAEL FUCKING JACKSON 1 OF THE GREATEST ARTIST WE EVER SEEN & HANDS DOWN 1 OF THE GREATEST GUYS I EVER MET!!"
