Juice Wrld’s mural in Chicago has been vandalized, causing his team to plan a replacement. The late rapper’s manager, Peter Jideonwo, and his family aim to have a new installation made to cut down on future vandalism.
Replacement Plans In Progress
Juice Wrld’s manager and family plan to replace the vandalized mural of the late rapper in Chicago. Jideonwo and Juice Wrld’s team are working on a new installation to reduce future vandalism, as they do not know who painted over the mural.
The mural, painted in 2020 by artist Corey Pane, has attracted thousands of visitors. Jideonwo and Juice Wrld’s family are currently exploring options for a new mural or statue of Juice Wrld.
Chicago’s Department Of Streets & Sanitation’s Response
After the vandalism, Chicago’s Department of Streets and Sanitation had a paint test conducted to confirm that they did not paint over the mural. They also stated that they plan to register artists to create a new mural in Chicago.
Juice Wrld Is Not Alone
The deaths of other rappers like Young Dolph and Pop Smoke have also led to murals being made in their honor, showing how their music has left a lasting impact on their fans. The legacy of Juice Wrld, whose real name was Jarad Higgins, continues to impact the music industry even after his untimely death in December 2019 due to a drug overdose.
A celebrity mural in Los Angeles featuring notable figures such as Kobe Bryant, Snoop Dogg, Tupac Shakur, and Vin Scully may be removed soon. The artist has received a notice from the city to take down the art, but he has launched an online petition to keep it up, which has garnered over 3,000 signatures.
