Benny Blanco has gone into the archives, dug up a tome’s worth of MSN & Myspace captions, and proceeded to work on an algorithm of sorts. The end result: Pinnacle Emo Rap. Who better to deliver the message than Juice WRLD, the melodic breakout star responsible for the platinum single “Lucid Dreams.”
It wouldn’t be right without a stalwart emo presence on deck, and in that sense, Panic! At The Disco frontman Brendon Urie has come through to hold it down. It’s not his first foray into hip-hop, having previously collaborated with Lil Dicky on “Molly,” but it’s certainly the closest he’s come to his old stompin’ grounds.
