Juice WRLD and Young Thug’s explosive “Bad Boy” collaboration has been in the stash for quite some time now and the chaotic track finally saw the light of day on Friday (January 15). The Pi’erre Bourne-produced cut arrived alongside a music video, which was the last the late Chicago rapper shot before his untimely death in December 2019.
In the clip directed by Lyrical Lemonade‘s Cole Bennett, Juice and Thugger step out of a car in matching black suits and exchange verses in a parking lot. They head over to a harbor and interact with a team of mimes before lighting the entire yard on fire and heading out.
Bennett, who also directed Juice’s “Lucid Dreams” video, reflected on working with the Chicago talent for the final time.
“The ‘bad boy’ video is finally out,” the 24-year-old wrote. “Crazy to think that this is our last video we’ll ever put out together. I love you forever juice. thank you for everything. enjoy.”

The track leaked on a couple of occasions throughout 2020, as Juice compares himself and Thug to the dynamic duo of Will Smith and Martin Lawrence from their 1995 classic Bad Boys. It finally received a firm release date when Bennett revealed on Christmas that the collab would arrive on January 15.
Juice’s team released a capsule commemorating “Bad Boy” on Friday (January 15) as well. The Juice WRLD 999 x Young Thug Spider merchandise collection features an array of graphic tees, sweatpants and hoodies.
Juice tragically passed away at 21 years old on December 8, 2019 due to a fatal seizure at Chicago’s Midway Airport. He reportedly ingested a toxic amount of oxycodone and codeine.
His estate released his posthumous Legends Never Die album in July 2020. The project debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 and surpassed two-billion on-demand streams in October 2020.
