American rapper Juice Wrld, who turned 21 last Monday, has died this Sunday at a Chicago hospital, where he was transferred after suffering an attack shortly after landing at dawn at Midway airport on a flight from California, his agents said.
Jarad Anthony Higgins, better known by his stage name Juice Wrld, has suffered an attack while walking through the airport, according to the witness account. Police sources have pointed out that the musician was bleeding from his mouth when he was taken to the hospital, but he was aware.
The causes of death have not yet been clarified. Juice Wrld’s career began to take off with the release of the song Lucid Dreams in 2018, which reached number two on the Billboard Hot 100 list. Then he achieved success with his first album, Goodbye & Good Riddance (2018), which contains songs like All Girls Are the Same, is with a remix with Lil Yachty, Armed and Dangerous and Wasted.
A month after releasing the album, he published two songs of homage to Lil Peep and XXXTentacion, both already deceased. The artistic name of Higgins was inspired by the performance of the American rapper Tupac Shakur in the movie Juice (1992), directed by Ernest R. Dickerson, which chronicles the life of four young Harlem.
The musician declared that his musical influences came from all genres, from rock to rap, and acknowledged his admiration for rappers Chief Keef, Travis Scott and Kanye West and British rock singer Billy Idol.
