Polo G is honoring late artist Juice WRLD with a new tattoo. The tribute tattoo appears at the top of his left arm and bears Juice’s icon with a straw through it and the numbers 999. Along with Juice’s ink, the “Pop Out” rapper equally paid tribute to his late grandma with a portrait of her face.
“Still see my grandmas I still see my guyzzz,” Polo G captioned his IG Story.
The tribute tat was inked by famed artist Phor from VH1’s “Black Ink Crew Chicago” and completed on Monday night. “@polo.capalot dedicated piece for his grandma 👵🏽 & @juicewrld999 🔥 #phoreverink,” Phor said.
Back in 2018 on an interview with MTV, Juice opened up about the significance of the numbers 999. “999 represents taking whatever hell, whatever bad situation or whatever struggle you’re going through and turning it into something positive and using it to push yourself forward,” he said.
Polo G, who collaborates with Juice WRLD on the Hit-Boy-produced “Flex” off his debut album THE GOAT, can also be heard on the Marshmello-assisted “Hate the Othe Side” off Juice’s posthumous album Legends Never Die, which dropped last week.
Moreover, Polo G and Juice WRLD’s relationship went beyond the studio before the Chicago MC lost his life. “We was homies before that. We used to kick it with each other every day — not music related, didn’t make no songs, none of that,” Polo G told Billboard. “He was rocking with me. I was on his music before he blew up, but we didn’t know each other before music. Juice actually reached out to me and showed love to me. And he didn’t have to do that, because at the time, he was the biggest artist in the world.”
