Juice Wrld, the well-known and rising rapper, is dead at the age of 21. What is the cause of death for the rapper? TMZ reports that he died after suffering from a seizure in an airport. Here are the details that we know so far.
Juice Wrld died at a Chicago airport. TMZ reported that Juice Wrld is “dead after suffering a seizure in Chicago’s Midway airport.” The entertainment site gave additional details on the shocking news by adding, “witnesses tell us he suffered the seizure while walking through the airport. Law enforcement sources say he was bleeding from the mouth when paramedics got on scene.”
Not Clear What Triggered
It’s not clear what triggered the seizure, however. TMZ reported that Juice Wrld died at the hospital and was still conscious when he was brought there. According to The Chicago Sun-Times, Juice died after suffering “a medical emergency at Midway Airport.” Midway is the smaller of Chicago’s two major airports, with the other being O’Hare. His real name is Jarad Anthony Higgins.
Juice Wrld rose to fame with his songs Lucid Dreams and All Girls Are the Same. His career was just starting to escalate. His album Death Race for Love went to Number 1 on the Billboard 200 chart. He also collaborated with various well-known artists, such as Ellie Goulding and Lil Uzi.
“I want to be that person that leads people out of the place they’re at,” Juice WRLD told Billboard earlier this year. “And in the process, maybe I’ll find the key to get out of the place that I’m at. The low places I may wander into or get trapped in.”
According to Metro UK, Juice Wrld was at the Chicago Airport on Sunday morning because he had just arrived at the airport “on a flight from California.”
Juice World was walking through the airport when he collapsed. Chicago was his hometown. Billboard is reporting that Juice “was reportedly alive when paramedics arrived on the scene but was pronounced dead at a local hospital shortly thereafter.”
