Future is still battling pal Juice WRLD’s death after studying he impressed the young rapper to attempt codeine cocktail lean at a young age.
Juice WRLD died following an unintentional overdose in December, and Future has since revealed the young star advised him he first tried the possibly lethal drink, dubbed sizzurp within the rap world, after listening to his hero and mentor.
“It bothered me a lot, more than that I thought it would bother me when he told me that,” Future advised Rolling Stone after his pal and collaborator’s death, and now he has opened up additional about the tragedy in a candid new XXL interview.
“It was heartbreaking about Juice,” he says. “Still to this day, I’m heartbroken… He’s a great artist. He had so much more to do.
“Me having an affect on that (Juice WRLD’s love for lean), I simply really feel like… that’s not my intention. My intention was simply to be me. I’m simply being me and what you get from it’s what you get from it, however on the similar time, I wouldn’t need nobody to undergo something to hurt theyself (sic) or to carry death to theyself and Juice Wrld is a sensitive scenario.
“I’m heartbroken by the whole thing. My heart goes out to his family, his mom.”
Juice WRLD died because of “oxycodone and codeine toxicity”.
