21-year-old music star, Jarad Anthony Higgins, popularly known as Juice WRLD has reportedly died after suffering a seizure at Midway airport in Chicago, IL.
According to law enforcement sources, the ‘Legends’ rapper who rapped about not making it past 21, was bleeding from the mouth when paramedics arrived at the scene.
The report states Higgins was still conscious after being rushed to hospital, but was sadly pronounced dead a short time later. His cause of death remains unclear at present.
The talented rapper first hit the limelight last year when his single “Lucid Dreams” lifted all the way to No. 2 on the Hot 100.
The track was originally featured on his mixtape 9 9 9, but after it became an international favorite, it was also included on his debut proper album Goodbye & Good Riddance. That set was released in May 2018, and it peaked at No. 4 on the Billboard 200. Later in 2018, Juice WRLD teamed up with fellow hip-hop star Future for their collaborative album Wrld On Drugs, which stalled just one rung shy of ruling the Billboard 200.
The rapper conquered the same chart earlier this year with his second solo album Death Race for Love, which ruled for one frame in March. It’s been less than a year since he owned the Billboard 200, but Juice WRLD was already preparing his next release, which was tentatively scheduled to drop at some point this month. He returned to the Hot 100’s top 10 recently with YoungBoy Never Broke Again on “Bandit,” which became his second track to enter the highest tier and the latter’s first.
