The death of rapper Juice WRLD was announced Sunday morning. The cause of the death is unknown but it was reported that while on a flight from Los Angeles to Chicago the rapper started going into a seizure and bleeding from his mouth. The Chicago native was rushed to a local hospital after the medical emergency started in Chicago’s Midway Airpot.
The actual cause of death is unknown at this time. Jarad Anthony Higgins, the birth name of Juice WRLD, started suffering from seizures around 2 a.m. Sunday morning.

Higgins just turned 21, on Dec. 2. Condolences and shock from other artists and celebrities have been all over social media.
A statement was released by Interscope Geffen A&M Records, saying “Juice made a profound impact on the world in such a short period of time. He was a gentle soul, whose creativity knew no bounds, an exceptional human being, and artist who loved and cared for his fans above everything else. To lose someone so kind and so close to our hearts is devastating. Our thoughts are with Juice’s family and friends, everyone at his label Grade A and his millions of fans around the world.”
