The Death of Rapper Juice Wrld Shocks CHS Fans

Rapper Juice WRLD died of a seizure at Chicago Midway Airport on Dec. 8.

Jarad Higgins went by the stage name Juice WRLD. His career skyrocketed after song, “Lucid Dreams,” peaked at number two on Billboard charts. Higgins grew a large and loyal following afterwards and had had a successful yet short-lived career.

Higgins flew into Chicago Midway Airport from California with friends around 1 AM on a private jet. Authorities were contacted after the pilot suspected guns and drugs were in the jet.

Higgins had swallowed several unknown pills before police searched the jet. Seventy pounds of marijuana, guns, and opiates were found in the passengers’ bags.

During the search Higgins began to convulse with blood coming out of his mouth. He was administered Naloxone (Narcan) to hopefully stop the overdose.

The rapper was soon transported to Advocate Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn, Illinois. Higgins was later pronounced dead at 3:15 a.m.

Juice WRLD had just celebrated his 21 birthday on December 2. Famous lyrics sung by the rapper shed light on the several deaths of young rappers. “What’s the 27 club? We ain’t making it passed 21.”

Since his death, conspiracy theories of Higgins still being alive are being talked about amongst his fans after a tweet had resurfaced from the rapper’s account. “My goal is to get overly famous, shine for a couple years..then fake my death.”

Anne Oakes, a CHS sophomore said, “It makes sense why people would believe he’s not dead because of his lyrics and everything…but it’s just a big coincidence.”

David Percario, a CHS senior said, “I believe he is still alive because this coincidence is just too crazy for him to actually be dead.”

A month ago a TikTok trend of faking a seizure while dancing to the rapper’s hit ,”Lucid Dreams”, began.

CHS students’ favorite Juice WRLD songs are Bandit, Lucid Dreams, and All Girls Are The Same.
