Juice Wrld has been gone for roughly 10 months, but his family and the rest of his team are working tirelessly to keep his legacy alive. After dropping the posthumous album Legends Never Die in July, Lil Bibby says the Juice Wrld machine is getting ready to unleash a second posthumous album.
The Hollywood Fix recently caught up with a masked up Lil Bibby (who’s also the head of Juice Wrld’s label Grade A Records) and asked what he was working on. He replied “Juice Wrld’s next album,” then quickly said, “I’m talking too much” and shut it down.

Juice Wrld suffered a fatal seizure at Chicago’s Midway Airport in December 2019 after ingesting a toxic amount of oxycodone and codeine. The 21-year-old reportedly died with an arsenal of material in the vault.
According to TMZ, he had roughly 2,000 unreleased songs locked and loaded at the time of his passing and his team was trying to figure out how to best “pay tribute with his unheard work.”
The Chicago native was well on his way to having a stacked discography despite only being in the game for two years. In 2018, he dropped his debut album Goodbye & Good Riddance, which hit the Billboard 200 chart at No. 15, selling over 39,000 total album equivalent units in its first week. His second album, Wrld On Drugs with Future, emerged that same year and debuted at No. 2, just behind Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper’s A Star Is Born soundtrack.
Juice Wrld’s third album, 2019’s Death Race For Love, marked his first No. 1 album with over 165,000 total album equivalent units sold in his first week. That proved to be the last album he’d release while alive. His first posthumous album, the aforementioned Legends Never Die, also landed at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 with historic first-week sales of nearly 500,000 units.
