Expression of Positivity

The number 999 is widely used as an expression of positivity, representing 666 ("the mark of the beast") turned on its head.

999 was the motto of the late rapper Juice WRLD (real name Jarad Higgins), who died in December 2019. In a 2018 interview with MTV, the rapper explained:

"In the last book of the Bible, it says that 666 is the mark of the beast, right? 999 represents taking whatever hell, whatever bad situation or whatever struggle you're going through and turning it into something positive and using it to push yourself forward."
