Rapper Juice Wrld, whose second album debuted at #1 on the Billboard charts this year, has died following a seizure in a Chicago airport. TMZ reports that the hip-hop star, real name Jarad Anthony Higgins, suffered the seizure after deplaming and while walking through Midway airport on early Sunday morning. Law enforcement sources say that he was bleeding from the mouth when paramedics arrived and although he was still conscious when transported to the hospital, he was pronounced dead shortly after. He had just turned 21 on last Monday.

Juice Wrld’s first big hit arrived in 2018 with “Lucid Dreams,” which climbed to #2 on the charts that summer. He did a track “All Girls Are the Same” that featured Lil Yatchy on the remix that put him in Interscope Records’ sights, and they signed him to a big money contract. His debut studio album Goodbye & Good Riddance was certified platinum, and the follow-up Death Race for Love hit #1 on the Billboard 200 in March.

Several music stars took to social media to react to the news including Lil Nas X, Camila Cabello, Ellie Goulding and more, as you can see below. On behalf of 411, our condolences to his family, friends and fans.
