Juice WRLD and Lil Uzi Vert’s new song, “Wasted,” is a charming play on the message that pops up when you die in Grand Theft Auto. The song is about getting wasted to “get her off my mind” and ignore the pain caused by “GTA love.” The wordplay goes further, though (“wasting my time when I’m wasted”), ending up at a romantic message that circles back to the Grand Theft Auto conceit: you kill me. The message, spelled out in the iconic GTA font, is the cover the single, along with Uzi and Juice shredding lightning out of electric guitars.
“Wasted” is not the first time you can hear Juice WRLD alongside the “rockstar” Lil Uzi. Back in April, Uzi jumped on a remix of Juice WRLD’s “Lucid Dreams.” “Wasted” has also been placed back onto Juice’s Goodbye And Good Riddance project from earlier this year.
Hold up, lemme be honest
I know I saw her put the percs in my chronic
Smokin till my eyes roll back like the old man
Just another funeral for her, God damn
