Yesterday, after the news spread of Juice WRLD’s passing, Lil Nas X went to Twitter to talk about it with fans. The rapper wrote, “oh my god wtf,” and “rip juice. so sad how often this is happening lately to young talented rising artists.”
Afterward, Lil Nas X went into detail about the past year he’s had and being sad overall. He wrote, “i usually deal with my sad times in private because i don’t like for my fans or family to feel sorry for me. this year had a lot of very high ups and extremely low downs. when u get to that hotel room and it’s just you, you do a lot of thinking. small things become so BIG.” He added, “i like to pretend hate and shit don’t get to me, but subconsciously it eats away at me. feeling like u have the world and knowing it can all go away at any time is scary. with all this being said i want anybody who cared enough to read this to just live in the moment. love u guys.”
In September, Lil Nas X announced that he was taking a break from music and canceled two shows.
