#Cousins; the recent passing of beloved artist #JuiceWrld has helped orchestrate much needed conversations upon the realms of drug abuse and addiction within the industry and how it directly affects our community as a whole.
For the first time since the news of his tragic death; Juice’s mom has publicly spoken out to shed light on her son’s life and overall legacy.
“We loved Jarad with all of our hearts and cannot believe our time with him has been cut short. As he often addressed in his music and to his fans, Jarad battled with prescription drug dependency,” states Juice’s mother Carmella Wallace with a heavy heart.
She goes on to say that devoted fans understood that Juice never gloated about his addiction; he instead utilized his platform to speak his truth while seeking to help others.
“Addiction knows no boundaries and its impact goes way beyond the person fighting it. Jarad was a son, brother, grandson, friend and so much more to so many people who wanted more than anything to see him defeat addiction.”
Though his family is torn by his unexpected death they are hopeful that this tragedy will help bring fourth awareness and change into the lives of many young teens and adults.
