The second anniversary of emo-rapper Juice WRLD’s premature death on Dec. 9, 2019, has been declared Juice WRLD Day by the late rapper’s estate. This declaration was noted with an event characteristic of the artist: A stadium-sized show at Chicago’s United Center, the city that Juice WRLD called home.

The concert featured a pre-release listening for Juice WRLD’s second posthumous album release, Fighting Demons. This marked only one of several of the artists releases squeezed into the beginning of this month. On Dec. 10, Los Angeles-based label ROSE IN GOOD FAITH, also in collaboration with the emo rapper’s estate, released a limited edition collection honoring both Fighting Demons and the Juice WRLD documentary, Into the Abyss, on Dec. 16. The footage reveals the artist’s larger-than-life shows and his mission to offer solutions to struggles with mental health behind the scenes. Though the musician wrestled with addiction and balancing emotional well-being, his public fight with these issues brought solace to millions of fans.

“You feel like you got anxiety, you feel like you got depression, they gonna’ look at you like you crazy,” Juice says in the preview for Into the Abyss. “That’s not how it should be. That’s how it is, and that needs to change.”

According to, Fighting Demons debuted at number one on the iTunes Top Albums chart, on U.S. iTunes, and on Apple Music. This includes critically acclaimed collaborations with Justin Bieber, Eminem, and Suga of the South Korean boy band, BTS.

This release follows 2020’s Legends Never Die, Juice WRLD’s third studio album released in July 2020, just seven months after the rapper’s death. Legends Never Die was also a hit, receiving positive reviews and debuting atop the US Billboard 200 in its first week. The album also reached number one in several other countries, including Australia, Canada, Ireland, and the United Kingdom.

These two albums may be just the beginning of Juice WRLD’s releases. According to a January 2020 TMZ report, the Chicago rapper had about 2,000 unheard records in his stash prior to his untimely death.

Jarad was always searingly honest about his struggles and through his musical genius he articulated what was on his heart and mind vividly through his art.”

We looked to Jarad and wanted to make something iconic, easy to love, deeply metaphoric, and meaningful,” David Teitelbaum, ROSE IN GOOD FAITH’s founder and CEO, said in a statement.

Every ‘Creed’ and ‘Rocky’ movie, ranked
Where does "Creed III" fall on our list of the best "Rocky" and "Creed" movies?
Sylvester Stallone and Michael B. Jordan in Creed.

Good sports movies are fairly easy to come by, but great ones can be almost impossible to find. Over the years, the Rocky and Creed franchises have produced movies that fall into each of those categories. When they're good, the movies in this franchise are among the best fighting movies ever made. Even when they're only okay, though, they're still pretty great sports movies.

With the recent release of Creed III, it feels like the appropriate time to take stock of the entire franchise and determine which Rocky movies rise to the top and which ones sink to the bottom. A great Rocky or Creed movie can take a wide variety of  forms, but what matters most is the emotion it evokes in the viewer, and how authentic those feelings are.
