According to the celebrity gossip outlet, Juice, born Jarad Anthony Higgins, passed away in Chicago Midway International Airport early Sunday morning (December 8) after landing in his hometown following his flight from California. It was while walking through the airport, the site reports, that the emcee suddenly suffered a seizure.
Law enforcement told TMZ by the time paramedics had arrived on the scene, Juice had already been bleeding from the mouth. Juice was reportedly still conscious when he was transported to a hospital but was pronounced dead a short while after. As yet, his cause of death has not been revealed.
After gaining attention and notoriety in 2015, Juice was considered one of hip-hop’s most hopeful acts of the freshman class, and generated a number of successful singles including “Bandit,” “All Girls Are the Same,” and of course, “Lucid Dreams,” which peaked at No. 2 on the Billboard Hot 100. He released two albums throughout his career, Goodbye & Good Riddance in 2018 and his second and final record, Death Race for Love, in March 2019.
When news of his tragic death broke, fans, friends, collaborators and peers mourned the loss of the “Lucid Dreams” emcee. “Wow I can’t believe this R.I.P. @JuiceWorlddd Prayers up for his family” Juicy J tweeted.
“I can’t believe it… you were such a sweet soul,” Ellie Goulding, who recently collaborated with Juice on her song “Hate Me,” wrote. “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.”
“really shocked and sad to find out juice wrld passed away, … and so young too…,” Zedd tweeted. “a reminder that life can be over any moment… be kind to one another.”
