Friday (January 15) saw the release of the rappers’ latest joint — a fast, up-tempo record titled “Bad Boy,” on which Thugger and Juice liken themselves to the iconic duo Will Smith and Martin Lawrence in the 1995 action-comedy film Bad Boys.
What’s more, both artists make an appearance in the song’s explosive music video, which was directed by Cole Bennett for Lyrical Lemonade in the latter half of 2019 before Juice’s passing.
“Please don't think it's sweet, I stay with the heat/ Even though I'm a sad boy/ You better watch the way you breathe around me/ 'Fore that breath be your last, boy,” Juice cautions on the posthumous record before Slime hops on the chorus, “I've been drinking Red Razz boy/ I've been trappin' all these birds, McCoy/ Newborn baby, my Richard Mille in nine months, ooh/ Overseas, hundred scheme, b—h, croissants.”
With “Bad Boy,” Juice and Young Thug mark their fourth collaboration together following 2018’s “Red Bentley” and 2019 tracks “ON GOD” and “Mannequin Challenge.”
As fans know, Juice died at age 21 in December 2019 as a result of toxic levels of oxycodone and codeine present in his system, as determined by the Cook County Medical Examiner.
Juice's third studio album, Legends Never Die, arrived posthumously in July 2020, spawning singles like “Life’s a Mess” and “Smile.” The album was a massive success with fans, having topped the Billboard 200 chart while pushing 497,000 album-equivalent units in its first week.
