Rapper Juice WRLD has suffered a seizure at the Midway airport in Chicago, IL, and died, according to a report from TMZ.
The Lean Wit Me rapper was just 21.
Born Jarad Anthony Higgins, the rapper released breakout smash “Lucid Dreams,” which climbed to No. 2 on the Hot 100 list – followed by a string of other chart climbing singles.
The track was originally featured on his mixtape 9 9 9, and was later added to his debut album, Goodbye & Good Riddance after gaining international fame. The May 2018 release peaked at No. 4 on the Billboard 200.
Later in 2018, Juice WRLD joined forces with fellow rapper Future for their collaborative album, Wrld On Drugs.
The rapper conquered the Billboard 200 chart this past March with second solo album, Death Race for Love.
With the ink not dry on his recent achievements, Juice WRLD was gearing up for his next release, scheduled to drop this month.
He returned to the Hot 100’s top 10 recently with “YoungBoy Never Broke Again” on Bandit.
In two years time, Juice WRLD had 25 songs on the Hot 100, which is a milestone some notable artists never reach in their entire careers.
In a statement he made to his writer earlier this month, Juice WRLD said he had a lot of material he wanted to share with fans – “probably over a thousand songs.”
Hopefully, those close to him will find a way to share some of that material with his fans.
