The meaning of 999 was revealed by Juice Wrld in a 2018 interview with MTV:

“In the last book of the Bible, it says that 666 is the mark of the beast, right?” Juice Wrld explained, “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.”
