While Juice WRLD's posthumous Legends Never Die continues to own the attention of music fans with an expected 475,000 first-week units, his fellow Chicago native Polo G shared a first look at a new tattoo paying tribute to his friend and peer gone too soon.
Inspired by the album cover of Juice's collaborative project with Future, WRLD ON DRUGS, the fresh ink displays the Earth covered in cough syrup with a straw poking out. In the middle is Juice's signature 999 motto, which puts a positive spin on the devilish number 666.
Appearing on "Hate The Other Side" produced by Marshmello, Polo G is one of the few features on Legends Never Die. "I lost gang members, I can't act cool, uh / I got gang scriptures in my tattoos," he raps, all too fittingly.
Speaking on his relationship with the late rapper, Polo G told Genius that Juice was "my dog, that was almost like a dude from my neighborhood that I grew up with." He added, "You don’t find that many people that you just click with like that."
"Can't relapse off these drugs, man, R.I.P. to Juice / We was tweakin' off them Percs, I popped my last one with you," Polo G says on "21." That second bar is a true story, too, per the same Genius interview.
Adding to the pair's deep relationship, Polo G once opened up for his guy during the Death Race For Love Tour in 2019.
Also, on his most recent album, THE GOAT, Polo G enlisted Juice for the Hit-Boy crafted track "Flex," which peaked at #30 on the Hot 100.
