On Thursday, December 16, we'll be headed backstage as HBO Max walks us throughout the legendary life of the late artist. Titled, Into The Abyss, the docu-film will be highlighting exactly that - Juice WRLD's time on the inside. "When you’re a fan of this ****, you look at it from a certain perspective," the late rapper explains in the trailer (below). "But when you in it? You see it for what it really is."

Sure enough, the rapper's time in the industry called for so much more than fire collabs and certified-platinum tracks: Juice went where very few dared to go, breaking taboos in the process. From coming clean about his mental health battle to becoming a voice of the generation, the HBO doc will be covering it all. "I’m still happy I could change the world, but… It’s not what it looks like," the Lucid Dreams artist can be seen explaining in the promo.

And, well, he wasn't wrong. Juice WRLD changed the name of hip-hop forever, inspiring others not to shy away from their emotions. "He was so good at articulating his feelings... it turned into so much beautiful art," a voiceover further explains in the doc's trailer.
