Jarad Anthony Higgins, known professionally as Juice Wrld, passed on yesterday at the age of 21 after suffering a seizure at Chicago’s Midway Airport early Sunday morning according to reports.
Juice Wrld was an American rapper, singer, and songwriter born in Chicago, Illinois who was best known for his hit singles “All Girls Are the Same” and “Lucid Dreams” which helped him gain a recording contract with Lil Bibby’s Grade A Productions and Interscope Records.
According to reports by TMZ, the young rapper was bleeding from the mouth when medics responded to the scene. He was conscious while being rushed to a nearby hospital, where he was declared dead.
The Chicago police launched a death investigation after a 21-year-old male experiencing a “medical emergency” was transported from Midway to an area hospital. Police said there were no signs of foul play and those aboard the aircraft were cooperating with authorities.
Chicago Fire Department spokesman Larry Langford said the man experienced cardiac arrest and was taken to a hospital from a hangar operated by Atlantic Aviation at Midway, away from the main terminal, where private planes land. Atlantic didn’t return a message Sunday.
Sadly, less than a week ago, Juice Wrld had just celebrated his 21st birthday and also he had notably rapped about suffering paranoia (an irrational and persistent feeling that you’re being threatened in some way) and not “making it past 21” in his song, “Legends“.
The American rapper was famously known as Juice, a stage name he drew from a 1992 film, ‘Juice’, which featured rapper Tupac Shakur. He rose to fame last year after releasing his massively successful song “Lucid Dreams” before being signed to Interscope Records.
The talented young rapper whose success began from SoundCloud, blended rapping and singing in his songs while focusing more on melody. His hit “Lucid Dreams,” was a six-times platinum success and reached No. 2 on the all-genre Hot 100 chart. It reached No. 1 on Billboard’s Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs and Hot Rap Songs charts.
Juice also collaborated with other famous rappers like Lil Yachty and Travis Scott. May his soul rest in peace.
