Exclusive Interview: Justice Carradine Discusses "Limbo"

The talented multi-instrumentalist talks about stepping into adulthood.

Atlantic Records

Chosen Music/Atlantic recording artist Justice Carradine has returned with his infectious new single, "Limbo."

Co-written by Justice and produced by Luke Niccoli (Gryffin), "Limbo" is another unique offering of Carradine's high energy pop music. Combining alternative with R&B and funk, "Limbo" is a coming of age tale for Carradine, who was recently forced to grow up as he was thrust into adulthood. "'Limbo'" is about transitioning from one phase of life to another," he said. "When I wrote it, I was coming to terms with turning 20. It sounds kind of dumb, but at the time my identity revolved around who I was as a teenager."

Karens. Even if you don't know them by name, you know who they are.

Karens have been asking to speak to managers all over American suburbia ever since Kate Gosselin debuted her infamous reverse-mullet on Jon and Kate Plus 8 in 2007. "Karens"—the collective nickname for middle-aged entitled white women who love nothing more than being pains in your ass—have been walking among us for quite some time, but as shelter-in-place orders and mask mandates have taken over the world, the presence of Karens has become even more apparent.

Last weekend, a Karen went viral in a since-deleted Tweet for a reason only Karens would empathize with. Jason Vicknair, a 40-year-old man from Allen, Texas, was just trying to enjoy his first date night out in three months with his wife at a Tex-Mex restaurant called Mi Cocina. Things took a turn for the worse.
