Minnesota talent Mango Juice has launched his compelling new eponymous EP.
Mango Juice hit the scene with influence from his favourite artist, Juice WRLD, using his time as a student at the University of Wisconsin to create the track “Young Life Saga”.
The track was accompanied by Juice’s launch of the Cari Ashford Cancer Relief Project, raising awareness of the nonprofit Family Reach organisation which help cancer patients overcome financial barriers to treatment. Philanthropy is an essential aspect of Mango Juice’s career, and he’s aiming to take further steps down that road with his new release.
“Long Road” is a ten-track new EP from Mango Juice which features his trademark hypnotic lyrics and intricate production. A highlight is the track “Nonchalant Flow”, a big closer to the EP that runs for a blockbuster five minutes, teaming Mango’s confident vocals with a poignant interlude featuring his grandmother’s encouraging words about his future potential. It’s a touching reflection of the gratitude Mango feels towards the people who have helped him along in his musical journey, and his desire never to lose touch of his familial roots even as his music brings him to fame.
On the EP, Mango Juice has said: “I see ‘Long Road’ as a reflection of my journey along the ‘Long Road’ of life. I wanted to treat the project as an overall story that takes the listener on my personal journey and can relate to and use as motivation.”
