“Wasted” by Juice WRLD ft. Lil Uzi Vert

Song year: 2018

“Armed and Dangerous” by Juice WRLD

Song year: 2018

This song focuses exclusively on a lifestyle focused on guns, extreme wealth, and drugs. Furthermore, he also takes on a superior mindset, looking down on others after he became famous. This song was certified 3x platinum in 2021.

“Feline” by Juice WRLD ft. Polo G and Trippie Redd

Song year: 2021

This collaboration with Polo G and rapper Trippie Redd is a little different than the emo-rap that Juice has become known for. Instead of heartbreak, this song deals with their willingness to fight when confronted and violence, more closely aligning with gangster rap.

Juice's part of “Feline” was recorded in 2018, but the features were likely recorded after his death in 2021. This makes their section all the more poignant.
