Juice Wrld: Rapper (Lucid Dreams) Dies ar 21

December 8, 2019–Juice Wrld, the young rapper best known for his 2018 hit “Lucid Dreams,” died on Sunday shortly after suffering a seizure at Chicago’s Midway Airport, according to TMZ. He was 21 years old.

A statement from the Cook County Medical Examiner’s office said that Jarad A. Higgins, 21, of Homewood, Ill., had died, according to the New York Times. The statement did not give a cause of death.

However TMZ cited law enforcement sources who claimed that the rapper experienced a seizure while walking through the airport, and was pronounced dead at a hospital shortly after.

Born and raised in Chicago, Juice had enjoyed a rapid ascension since he first began posting his songs to SoundCloud as a teenager in 2015, working in a style that blended elements of emo and rock with hip-hop.

His independently-released 2017 track “Lucid Dreams” proved to be a career-maker, rising steadily until an official single release in 2018 broke him onto the pop charts, where the song would peak at No. 2.
