Juice Wrld fans have uncovered his pre-fame Instagram and it’s a treasure trove of throwback gems.
Last used on November 18, 2012, the late rapper operated under the Instagram username @d_g_a_f and called himself ‘Jpot’ in his bio. The 24 posts are a mix of grainy selfies, some Supreme pieces, his dog, and memes featuring Tyler, The Creator quotes that seem to have resonated with him at the time.
“Do what the fuck makes you happy, cause at the end, who’s there? You. – Tyler,” one of the memes reads.
Another reads, “I used to give a fuck until I lost my emotions.” He posted that one twice.
Juice also shared a screenshot listening to Bone Thugs-n-Harmony‘s 1997 hit record, “Look Into My Eyes” and said it was “the best song ever.” And the account only followed seven pages – three brands, two women and rappers Earl Sweatshirt and Dizzy Wright.
Last month, Juice Wrld’s estate released his posthumous album Legends Never Die on July 9. The 21-track effort featured appearances from Trippie Redd, Marshmello, The Kid Laroi and more and debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 with an astounding 497,000 album equivalent units. The feat made for the largest weekly total of 2020 (beating The Weeknd) and Juice’s second No. 1 album.
