Juice WRLD will be the latest subject for an upcoming documentary Juice WRLD: Into the Abyss, as part of HBO and HBO Max’s Music Box Series, produced by Bill Simmons and premiering on Dec. 16.
In the trailer for the doc, the late, great Juice WRLD is seen crowd surfing at a music festival and interacting with his fans as his song “Black & White” plays in the background off of his Goodbye & Good Riddance album.
Juice soon shares that despite the fame, what goes on behind the scenes can paint a different story.
“When you a fan of this shit, you look at it from a certain perspective. But then when you’re in it, you see it for what it really is,” he says. “I’m still happy I can change the world, but it’s not what it looks like.”
According to a press release, the Tommy Oliver-directed film will feature unreleased tracks, interviews, and never-before-seen footage. It ultimately shows the rapper in his element as an artist: performing to the masses, collaborating with producers and freestyling with his friends.
Juice WRLD passed away in Dec. 2019 from an accidental drug overdose.
He was 21.
His estate has released a posthumous album from the artist, Legends Never Die, with plans to release an upcoming project called Fighting Demons soon.
Earlier this year, Deadline announced an animated film based on his music was in development and would be scripted by former Daily Show comedian Jaboukie Young-White.
