“Juice Wrld: Into The Abyss” Review: By documenting the rapper’s journey and descent

When Juice Wrld died of a drug overdose in December 2019. The 21-year-old rapper, singer and songwriter were already in the stratosphere of his career. The original 2017 single and most notably it’s May 2018 track “Lucid Dreams” recorded billions of streams and a top spot on the Billboard Hot 100. Her debut album went platinum immediately. And lyrics that often discuss depression, anxiety, palpitations, and marginalization have resonated with the young emo-themed fan base. The constantly changing landscape of contemporary hip-hop sounds born and raised online is maintained.

But by the time he streams regularly:

It competes with Drake and Taylor Swift. Juice Wrld is also good and takes control of his drug of choice. Percocet and ounce to an ounce of liquid codeine. Lean was always present in Into the Abyss, as were the pills; The document consists primarily of footage shot during the last two years of Juice’s life. While he and his entourage were whole-heartedly engaged in the hedonism that came with fame. But Abyss also offers unlimited access to endless creative minds. Meanwhile, Juice Wrld seems to be expressing himself almost entirely in freestyle. With elaborate rhymes escaping his mouth like a constant stream of comments filling the bottom corner of TikTok.

Into the Abyss features interviews with speaking executives worldwide from Juice. From girlfriend Ali Lottie, manager Lil Bibi and producer Benny Blanco to friends and co-workers Polo G, G Herbo, The Kid Laroi and music video director Cole Bennett. It’s all done by Abyss director Tommy Oliver after Juice’s death. It captures most of the actual paperwork, where cameraman Juice and his entourage are dutifully followed by unstructured seduction sections and through live performances of turbulent, often triumphant, freestyle sessions. A night at the Cutting studio recording and more confessed self-examination moments are as instructive as those filled with Percocet drops and sips of Lean. Abyss also avoids outsiders from the story, allowing viewers to immerse themselves in the world of Juice’s island.

To interviewees at Into the Abyss, they described Juice Wrld:

As a unique presence, a generational talent, and a kind person. “Whether we realize it or not, Juice has become a therapist for millions of children,” said Blanco. But in the end, it was a stunning sight that could only prevent his death from the toxic cocktail of codeine and oxycodone completely if they controlled his intake a little more.

Juice Wrld: Into the Abyss begins right at Strudel, with a long close-up of the freestyling rapper. It takes a few minutes but can easily take hours. Juice’s rhymes weave words and phrases that grew and grew together, and many childhood memories mingled with explicit references to the chemical handling of fear and mortal thoughts. It’s just one more night for Juice. (It’s often nighttime at Abyss – the rapper and his team are nocturnal.) But for viewers, it’s a unique example of his magical talent and how he often appears thoroughly rehearsed and spontaneous at the same time.

This was also the subject of an interview on Abyss because the rapper’s talent was so great that he couldn’t even think of something being recorded as a song. But if he always wanted more work, Juice also wanted more pills and lean foods. Juice is so far away from his world that he doesn’t know where else to go in the Abyss. At one point, he realized that making better decisions in his life could be critical to progress. Next, a friend explained how Juice himself drank a glass of liquid codeine.

While an interview in Into the Abyss provides a glimpse of an artist’s talent and ambition:

We see it in the middle of an immersive document. The world of Juice is a modern and stellar show environment, and the camera moves with it through the interconnected cameras of that existence. The stage, its gates, and its smoke give way to the moving walls. That release the resting prefabricated tour bus and thus its exclusive inner sanctuary. That transports the rapper and his entourage into the recording studio setting or his expansive modernist private space. House.

And because he rarely did anything that didn’t directly relate to his career or existence as a wealthy recording artist, it was the only natural element of Juice’s life. The rules of everyday life do not apply, as does ordinary fuel. Instead, you always have a weed pen and 20 per cent a day and a cup of leaning in hand. Suppose the Abyss, as G Herbo describes it, is a place where depression resides, inhabited by sadness and fear of falling again and again. In that case, this is also an apt description of the flickering personal universe that Juice Wrld has inhabited in recent years. In his life.

The first season of the Music Box documentary series ended with the most tragic entry. Juice Wrld: Into the Abyss depicts a young artist as a meteorite hip-hop presence, drug addiction and the consequences of its tragic ending.
