Kid Cudi remembers meeting Juice WRLD for the first time

He also shared a screenshot of early text messages between the pair

Kid Cudi has remembered the first time he met Juice WRLD in a heartfelt Twitter post about the late rapper.

Juice WRLD died in December 2019 after experiencing cardiac arrest-like symptoms on arrival at Chicago’s Midway Airport. A coroner later ruled he died from an accidental overdose of oxycodone and codeine.

Posting on Twitter yesterday (March 27), Cudi shared a tweet Juice WRLD, real name Jarad Higgins, had posted in 2018. “@KidCudi I need to work with you legend,” his tweet read.
