This track was released in honor of XXXTentacion's recent death. The song is about the passing of Lil Peep and XXXTentacion as they were gaining massive audiences and popularity. XXX was shot in his car in June 2018, and Peep overdosed on Fentanyl in November 2017.
Aside from the dark topic and meaning of the song, the track highlights Juice WRLD - who is also gaining major popularity within the music community - and his vocal abilities. His voice flows beautifully with the beat and soft guitar in the background. Juice WRLD questions how becoming a legend himself will impact his life and can't fathom why these things are happening to current rappers.
He sings, "I usually have an answer to the question but this time I'm gon' be quiet". The tempo and catchy beat make the song very addicting, which is why I have added it to the Music To Get Addicted To Playlist. And with 6.18 million plays and counting on Soundcloud, others are feeling the same way.
