Lil Pump decided to forgo performing one of his mega-hit songs out of respect for Juice WRLD … and honored his late friend instead.
Sources close to the situation tell TMZ … Lil Pump and his team removed the track, “Drug Addicts” from his Rolling Loud Festival setlist in L.A. in light of the circumstances of 21-year-old Juice’s death. Fans know it’s a track he commonly performs live.
Pump replaced the song — which glorifies popping pills and abusing illegal street drugs — with a short tribute. He played Juice’s hit single, “Lucid Dreams,” along with a video displaying “Rest in Peace” … while the crowd held their phone lights up.
We broke the story … Juice WRLD’s family addressed his battle with prescription drug dependency. They said his songs about drugs weren’t intended to promote using — but instead to help other addicts who might feel alone in their struggle.
