Juice Wrld Name-Drops Drake, Sarah Palin and the Dalai Lama in New Freestyle
Ask Young Thug, Lil Bibby or Ski Mask The Slump God about Juice Wrld's ability to freestyle, and they'll all say the same: he's the best in the game. These three rappers have been witness to their friend Juice Wrld freestyling on countless occasions, whether it's recording in the studio, kicking it between shows or seeing him on press runs spitting bars for over an hour. If there's one thing Juice Wrld excels at, it's freestyling.
In early August, Juice Wrld welcomed XXL to join a paintball excursion at Hollywood Sports Paintball & Airsoft Park in Bellflower, Calif., for the Fall 2019 cover story for XXL magazine. With his entourage in tow, the Chicago rapper prepared to hit four different paintball fields on a blazing hot summer day. Before Juice got armed and ready to hit the paintball battlegrounds in his tactical gear, the MC did what comes naturally to him. Yes, the 20-year-old artist delivered an impromptu freestyle.
While his crew were getting their gear together, Juice joked with his longtime friend Chris, saying, "I say, I ain't on the XXL cover, I'll still freestyle though," referring to his absence on the 2019 XXL Freshman Class cover. And with that, he gets to work.
Juice mixes in references to the spiritual leader Dalai Lama, R. Kelly, Drake and former Alaska governor Sarah Palin while using his surroundings as inspo. “She gon’ miss me when I’m gon’ on that Drake shit/These niggas really good at one thing and that’s hatred/I don’t got no time for this shit, these niggas basic/And, bitch, I’m strapped up like I’m goin’ to basic training/Presidential brain from your bitch like Sarah Palin/I pull up on the scene and blast, my choppa sprayin’,” Juice raps.
