"Armed and Dangerous" is a song by American rapper Juice Wrld, released as a single on November 9, 2018.[1] The music video for the song was released in October.[2]

Critical reception[edit]

HotNewHipHop stated the track "recalls the vibe" of Juice Wrld's debut album Goodbye & Good Riddance and "would fit in nicely alongside his more party-friendly joints as he sings about how he has no need to hire a bodyguard since he's got the stick on him at all times".[3] XXL said "Armed and Dangerous" "finds Juice getting back in his bag", calling it a "free associative" track "where the melodically inclined artist spits about his come-up while firing off some flexes and self-aware bars".[4]

Music video[edit]

The video, directed by Cole Bennett, is composed primarily of clips of Juice Wrld's live performances, along with scenes where he is shown lip syncing to the song, and getting ready for a concert.[4]
