Benny Blanco Shares Juice WRLD Collaboration Real Shit

Thursday, 03 December 2020 Written by Jon Stickler

Benny Blanco (pictured) has released Real Shit, a collaboration with the late hip hop giant Juice WRLD.

The track finds the rapper celebrating life and counting his blessings over the producer's relaxed beat. It landed yesterday (December 2), on what would've been Juice WRLD's 22nd birthday, and marks the first time the pair had recorded together in the studio. In a lengthy Instagram post that accompanied the release, Blanco reminisced:

"@itsbennyblanco my friend played me a song like 2 or 3 years ago... i looked at him and said it was one of the best songs i had ever heard... my friend didnt even know the artists name... said it was juice or something... i searched and searched on instagram until i came across juice’s page... he had 9k followers at the time... i dmed him and said we had to work... he said he was coming to la in a week and we could go in then... i booked us a studio... he didnt even have a record deal... labels were coming to the session all night trying to butter him up and offer him anything he wanted... he didn’t give a fuck... he just wanted to make music... we made like 6 songs the first night... one of them being “roses”... the first song we ever recorded tho was “real shit”... it was the first time i saw his magic... the whole room dropped their jaws and watched him in awe... we knew we were in the room with a man who was going to change music forever... he went in the booth and recorded a song top to bottom in one take... then he did it 3 more times and said pick the best one... and they were all perfect songs... he was an absolute genius to say the least but above all he was one of the kindest and most considerate people i have ever met... he was my friend... happy birthday juice... we miss u…"

Real Shit comes after Juice WRLD's posthumous cut Smile with The Weeknd. It's unclear if the song is a standalone single or will form part of the follow-up to 'Legends Never Die', released by his estate back in July. He was also recently awarded Favorite Male Artist – Rap/Hip-Hop at the 2020 American Music Awards.

Juice WRLD died in December 2019 at the age of 21.
