The Kid Laroi Talks Juice WRLD, Justin Bieber in Documentary Trailer


The Kid Laroi reminisces about his rise, his friendship with Juice WRLD, and getting a call from Justin Bieber while in the shower in the new trailer for the upcoming documentary, Kids Are Growing Up: A Story About a Kid Named Laroi

Directed by Michael D. Ratner, the movie offers an in-depth look at the young Australian musician’s remarkable past few years as he shot to superstardom and set about making his official debut album, The First Time. The new trailer opens with some extremely early footage of the Kid Laroi — real name Charlton Howard — rapping for a camera and stating his aims plainly: “I ain’t ever coming back for the itty bitty chat/I gotta go and get on the screen.” 

The subsequent scenes find Laroi discussing the joys, pressures, and anxieties brought on by so much fame, and how his popularity dovetailed with the death of his friend and mentor, Juice WRLD. “He taught me a lot about life,” Laroi says in the trailer. “He had so much life left to live. That just should not be placed on anybody.” 

The trailer also features a snippet of a new Kid Laroi song, as well as footage from a joint interview with Justin Bieber, who hopped on a remix of the Kid Laroi’s breakout hit “Stay.” In the final scene, Bieber cracks, “The first time I ever actually called him, he was in the shower, and I was like, ‘What’s up, dog? You can call me when you’re done showering!’” 


Kids Are Growing Up will premiere Feb. 29 on Prime Video. The day before the premiere, the Kid Laroi will take part in a special interactive screening that will find him providing real time commentary about the film, and also answering some fan questions (you can RSVP to attend the screening here). 

The Kid Laroi released The First Time last year. The album features contributions from BTS’ Jungkook, Central Cee, Future, BabyDrill, YoungBoy Never Broke Again, Robert Glaspar, and D4vd. It follows the Kid Laroi’s breakthrough mixtape, F*ck Love, originally released in 2000, but reissued a couple of times with additional tracks.
