“What’s the 27 Club? We ain’t making it past 21.” - Juice WRLD
Juice WRLD (born Jarad Anthony Higgins) suffered a seizure while he was at Chicago’s Midway airport on Sunday (December 8).
When paramedics arrived at the scene, sources reported he was bleeding from the mouth. He was conscious while being taken to the hospital, but was pronounced dead a
shortly after arrival.
Juice Wrld’s cause of death is uncertain. His star took off in 2017 with his track ”Lucid Dreams,” reaching number 2 on the billboard charts and going 5X platinum not to mention close to a billion streams on just Spotify.
”Lucid Dreams”, which samples Sting’s 1993 hit “Shape Of My Heart,” got the attention of Sting himself. Not in the best way as he was being sued by the veteran musician. However, in an interview, Sting called Juice WRLD’s song a “beautiful interpretation that is faithful to the original song’s form.” Juice WRLD enjoyed a lot of success with his sophomore release reaching number one on the Billboard 200. His heartfelt music catapulted him to stardom and garnered a loyal fan base. The Hip Hop community is shocked and saddened by the news. We wish his family the best in this painful time. Our condolences go out to you and we want you to know his music and message will keep helping and healing lost souls. RIP Juice WRLD.
