The Kid LAROI dropped his first full-length mixtapeFuck Love this morning. It’s a reflective, emotional release that spotlights LAROI’s maturing voice and centres the legacy of his mentor Juice WRLD.
The late rapper’s unique sound echoes through his protégé’s 15 track debut (that’s 11 songs and four in-his-feeling voicemail skits). You can hear a little Post Malone in LAROI’s deeper and more robust voice on tracks like “Tell Me Why”, which deals with LAROI’s struggle to come to terms with his mentor’s passing, and when his voice strains with emotion on the standout “So Maybe”, there’s even shades of Trippie Redd.
Fuck Love features guest spots from Lil Mosey (“Wrong”), Corbin (“Not Fair”), and Juice WRLD on Billboard charting single “Go”, which has already racked up close to 50 million streams on Spotify alone. With “Need You Most (So Sick)” the 16-year-old offers his personal take on Ne-Yo’s 2000s classic of the same name, which originally came out when LAROI was three. Find the Fuck Love mixtape wherever you stream your music to hear the Sydney artist’s evolved sound.
