Tragically, the rapper, Juice Wrld, was pronounced dead at the age of 21 from an apparent medical emergency just this past week. He was taken to the hospital, but it was later announced that he had passed away from cardiac arrest, although this hasn’t been confirmed yet by the autopsy. Jared Anthony Higgins, aka JUICE WRLD, was widely known for the music he made, specifically his songs “All Girls are the Same” and “Lucid Dreams”. As of right now he has over 10 million followers on Instagram, and around 29 million monthly streamers on Spotify.
One of the reasons his death has been controversial is because of the circumstances surrounding it. On December 8th, Juice Wrld landed in Chicago early Sunday morning, after his flight from California. Upon landing, police raided his private jet and found over 70 pounds of Marijuana in his luggage. It is also said he took unknown pills shortly before his flight. As he was walking through the Midway Airport, Juice suddenly had a seizure and had blood coming from his mouth. Paramedics then arrived and tried to keep him stable on the way to a nearby hospital, where he later passed away.Everyone from fans to popular artists such as Drake, Lil Nas X, and many more were heartbroken to hear the sad news and tweeted or posted about the tragedy.
Although many people are extremely sad to hear this news, others are speculating that he may still be alive and this was all a plan to fake his death. This is due to a tweet he sent out on April 25, 2017 which stated, “My goal is to get overly famous, shine for a couple years…then fake my own death” -Juice Wrld. This is also backed up from lyrics he said in his songs “Legends,” “All Girls Are The Same,” and “Rich and Blind” in which he said “What’s the 27 club? We ain’t making it past 21,” which is sadly ironic since he died shortly after he turned 21. In another song, he says,“They tell me the death of me gon be the percys” (Drugs/Pills). And lastly, “I’m a jealous boy, really feel like John Lennon,” which is interesting because Juice coincidentally died on the same day as John Lennon did in 1980. All of these clues make some people think the rapper may actually still be alive.
