In case you’re wondering, Juice WRLD’s freestyle skills are still in tact.
Months after he dropped an hour-plus rap on the Tim Westwood show, the Chicago rapper returned to the program with another marathon of bars. Juice hopped on the mic for 50 minutes straight—yes, 50 minutes—spitting lines over a medley of Eminem beats.
He took over classic cuts like “Just Lose It,” “My Name Is,” “Purple Pills,” “The Real Slim Shady, “Remember Me?,” and more.
“Boppin’ on the bitch like Kodak, nigga/Up, down, left, right, cheat code that nigga,” he raps. “[…] BAPE on the cape, no I’m not a hero/BVS code, no sub-zero/Gettin’ money like Robert De Niro/Fuck with me, you’ll get Jack like Sparrow.”

Following the extensive freestyle, the rapper chopped it up with Westwood, explaining Em’s influence on his life and career.
“That’s just part of who I am,” he said about his respect for the Detroit rapper (2:20). “I’m not really a fan of, like, his new project (Kamikaze) […] but all his old shit, that’s like a part of who I am. I wouldn’t be who I am without Eminem’s music.”
Juice also spoke about his breakout single “Lucid Dreams,” Ski Mask the Slump God, and his upcoming album.
He told Westwood he had more than 200 records in the vault, some of which would likely appear on his next project.
“It just started getting confusing. I literally just started losing tracks of songs […] Now I’ve got so many songs, it’s insane,” he said. “[…] The next project is going to be way different than my first one.”
Juice went on to list some of his favorite records he was sitting on, including a cut called “Commonsense,” as well as collaborative joints with Gunna, Young Thug, and more.
“I want to say all of them (collaborators), but I think some of them are supposed to be a surprise,” he explained.
