One of the most popular hip-hop stars of recent times, Juice WRLD has suffered a sudden seizure and breathed his last at the age of 21. TMZ first broke the information. The information was shared by the Cook County Medical Examiner’s Office.
Born as Jarad Anthony Higgins, Juice WRLD had just turned 21 on December 2. He was reported to have suffered a medical emergency at the Midway Airport. He had arrived from Los Angeles on board a flight and suffered a severe seizure at the terminal. He was later attended by the paramedics and shifted to a local hospital. He was, however, pronounced dead.
The singer’s label Interscope Records was quick to issue a statement through Twitter.

It may also be remembered that he had hit the No 1 position Billboard 200 Album chart when his studio album “Death Race for Love” went popular.
The exact cause of the death is unknown. For now, it has been termed as a medical emergency, and no foul play was observed. The Police are waiting for the autopsy report which has been scheduled for Monday.
The singer, rapper and hip-hop star had a few huge plans for the future. “I want to be that person that leads people out of the place they’re at,” he had once told Billboard.
He went popular with his single “All Girls Are The Same” in 2018. This was followed by “Lucid Dreams,” which went immensely popular. It even went ahead to gain a No 2 spot in the Billboard Top 100 chart. It even earned him the top new artist award in 2019 Billboard Music Awards.
