Carmella Wallace, mother of the late Juice WRLD, has broken her silence. Opening up about her son’s passing and his struggle with drug addiction, Wallace released a statement to TMZ to thank the fans who have kept his family in their hearts and in hopes of helping the fans themselves heal:

“We loved Jarad with all of our hearts and cannot believe our time with him has been cut short. As he often addressed in his music and to his fans, Jarad battled with prescription drug dependency. Addiction knows no boundaries and its impact goes way beyond the person fighting it. Jarad was a son, brother, grandson, friend and so much more to so many people who wanted more than anything to see him defeat addiction. We hope the conversations he started in his music and his legacy will help others win their battles as that is what he wanted more than anything. We know that Jarad’s legacy of love, joy and emotional honesty will live on.”

The rapper unexpectedly passed on December 8 after suffering a seizure at Chicago’s Midway airport. Reports state that the rapper was bleeding from the mouth and was transported to a local hospital where he died. Juice WRLD had just turned 21.

Elsewhere in music, Stormzy has dropped his newest album, Heavy Is The Head.
