As the music world continues to mourn the death of 21-year-old Juice WRLD, we atÂ BillboardÂ are looking back at a 2018 interview in which the rapper details his “Lucid Dreams” writing process.
The song, which peaked at No. 2 on the Billboard Hot 100, was written in his family room when he was a senior in high school.Â
â€œLucid dreaming is dreaming but you being aware that youâ€™re doing it,â€ he explained of the songâ€™s subject matter. â€œI feel as though if youâ€™re able to control your dreams you have more power and control over your mind, like you could reach more areas of your mind. Therefore, I feel like it creates the ability for you to achieve more things in reality.â€
