Rapper Juice Wrld sadly dies suddenly aged 21 after suffering a seizure at an airport.
Juice Wrld, real name Jarad Anthony Higgins, was best-known for his viral hit Lucid Dreams, and collaboration with Travis Scott titled No Bystanders.
It has been reported by TMZ that Higgins suffered a seizure at Chicago's Midway airport on Sunday morning, after returning from California. According to the BBC, Chicago police stated that a 21-year-old man suffered a medical emergency at approximately 02:20 local time (08:00 GMT) and was taken to the hospital where he was pronounced dead.
Police have launched an investigation into the death, as according to the Cook County Medical Examiner's Office that the cause of death is not yet known.
Higgins turned 21 just a week prior to his passing, and it's been said that he predicted his own death in his 2018 tribute to rapper XXXTentacion, who died aged 20 in 2018, "Legends" where he stated: “What’s the 27 Club? / We ain’t making it past 21”.
The 27 Club is the name for artist who died tragically aged 27, such as Amy Winehouse, Kurt Cobain and Jimi Hendrix.
Juice Wrld fans have been paying their respects to the rapper on social media. One fan said: "Nobody could hop on different beats for an hour and kill it like he did", followed by a video of Juice Wrld rapping.
