  • Lyrics
  • This song finds Juice WRLD honoring both Lil Peep, who died of a drug overdose in November 2017, and XXXTentacion, who was shot dead in June 2018. The Chicago rapper expresses his feelings about their tragic losses and the way it has made hum question his own rising fame.

    They tell me I'ma be a legend
    I don't want that title now
    'Cause all the legends seem to die out
    What the f--- is this 'bout?


    Having scored his first big hit with "Lucid Dreams (Forget Me)" shortly before the release of this song, Juice is struggling with the potentially fatal consequences of becoming a legend himself.
  • "Legends" was produced by New York-based duo Take A Daytrip. "I think that was like the first or second beat we played and he immediately just said, 'Load it up,'" Take a Daytrip's Denzel Baptiste told Genius. "This is like, five minutes after meeting him. He just goes in the booth and kind of just freestyles this entire song. And that's like the first song we did with him."

Who writes a song about a name they found in a phone book? That's just one of the everyday things these guys find to sing about. Anything in their field of vision or general scope of knowledge is fair game. If you cross paths with them, so are you.
