Lil Pump decided to cut a popular single from his Rolling Loud set out of respect for his late colleague.
A source close to Pump told TMZ that the rapper was set to perform his track "Drug Addicts" at Rolling Loud Los Angeles over the weekend. Yet, he removed the song from his setlist after learning about Juice WRLD's death. In the "Drug Addicts," Lil Pump seemingly promotes drug use.
"Start the day off with a pint/I'ma show you how to live life," Pump raps on the song's chorus. "Take a lot of drugs, don't think twice/I do this every day and all night."
Given the circumstances surrounding Juice WRLD's passing, Pump didn't think it would be appropriate to perform the track.
Although Juice WRLD's official cause of death has not been determined, reports have surfaced claiming that the rapper took several Percocet pills prior to having a seizure at Chicago's Midway Airport. This had led people to assume that his death was sparked by an accidental overdose.
Adding to the potentially poor timing of Pump's "Drug Addicts" is that Juice WRLD was scheduled to headline Rolling Loud before his death. Instead of performing the song, Lil Pump decided to dedicate a portion of his set to honoring Juice WRLD's life. He played Juice's smash single, "Lucid Dreams," and displayed "Rest in Peace Juice WRLD" on the screen behind him. Lil Pump also paid tribute to fellow South Florida native, XXXTentacion, who was killed in June 2018.
