While accepting the Game Changer Award at Billboard’s Women in Music ceremony yesterday, Nicki Minaj paid tribute to Juice Wrld. In her touching speech, she spoke of the times she shared with the late rapper and about mental health and drug abuse.
“I recently had the pleasure of working and touring with Juice WRLD,” Minaj said. “I had a great conversation with him one day and while we walked to the stage, he held my hand and told me to stay calm and to pray. He said he had been trying to do just that.”
She went on telling the audience how much he loved his girlfriend and that drugs aren't an issue in the music industry, but the mental health issues prior to that which cause drug use.
