Jarad Anthony Higgins, famously known as Juice Wrld has died after suffering a seizure. He was reportedly seen at Chicago’s Midway Airport conscious and bleeding from the mouth. He was immediately rushed to hospital and died shortly after.
Considered by many to be a rising star in the world of rap, he first burst onto the scene in 2018 with the release of Bay favourite “Lucid Dreams”. This track became a worldwide hit and was later included in his first album Goodbye & Good Riddance.
He later released a collaborative mixtape alongside Future called Wrld on Drugs. This mixtape included hit “Fine China”.
Earlier this year, he released his second studio album Death Race for Love which debuted at number one and included singles “Fast”, “Robbery” and “Hear me calling”.
He also collaborated with Ellie Goulding on the international hit “Hate me” which also became a massive hit on Bay.
I can’t believe it… you were such a sweet soul. I’ll always remember meeting you and your family on the video set and thinking how close you were. You had so much further to go, you were just getting started. You’ll be missed Juice 💔

Juice Wrld famously released “Legends” as a tribute to the late rappers Lil Peep and XXXTentacion who both died at a very young age. In track he says he doesn’t see himself living past 21: “What’s the 27 Club? We ain’t making it past 21. I been going through paranoia”.
Rest in peace.
