In a snippet, Juice WRLD – whose real name is Jarad Anthony Higgins – says: "When you’re a fan of this shit, you look at it from a certain perspective, but when you’re in it, you see it for what it really is. I’m still happy I could change the world, but… It’s not what it looks like".

Another part of the trailer shows an interview, he says: "If you’ve got anxiety or depression, they all look at you like you’re crazy; that’s not how it should be but that’s how it is, and that needs to change. And hopefully I’m one of those people that could bring that change".
