One of the managers of XXXTentacion's estate revealed in a leaked DM to a fan there's a "big collab" arriving soon between the late X and Juice WRLD.
Though they shared mutual friends and collaborators like Ski Mask The Slump God and Trippie Redd, this would be the duo's first track together.
You can read the DM from Solomon "Sounds" Sobande below. The Capitol Records executive also claimed, "We are dropping all the songs that never made it to SoundCloud & Apple," and mentioned an upcoming documentary.
Back in May, some of X's SoundCloud cuts were sold as NFTs. "Some of these songs aren’t even on his SoundCloud page anymore," Solomon said. "There are just the remnants of them being reposted."
Juice and X reportedly never met in person but the latter had a major impact on Juice's life and music.
Days after X was killed in June 2018, Juice released "Legends," a tribute to both X and Lil Peep. The cover art is a screenshot of Juice's DMs with X where they discuss his potential and energy.
Producer DJ Scheme was very close with both Juice and X, and he originally floated the existence of a joint track two years ago with a tweet nodding to their brands: "Bad vibes 999."
Scheme later told HNHH it's a remix of "whoa (mind in awe)," a top highlight from X's 2018 album 'Skins.' "I was chilling with Juice and he’s like, 'Yo listen to this.' It was a remix of 'Whoa' on 'Skins' and it sounded awesome," he said. "A really beautiful song. I forgot about it because he played me a million songs a day and it’s like, 'Wow, super dope.'
"It was during that period where X’s two [posthumous] projects had come out already. [Juice] was like, 'Yeah we did this a while ago, I just haven’t played it for anyone. You’re the only person I want to hear it.'"
While fans wait patiently for Juice and X's collab, there's a second posthumous album from Juice titled 'Fighting Demons,' set to drop on Friday, December 10th. (Two days removed from the two-year anniversary of Juice's passing.)
Juice's first posthumous release, 'Legends Never Die,' propelled him to be the most-streamed artist on Spotify in 2020.
