Rapper Juice Wrld is dead at just 21 years of age after suffering a from seizure in a Chicago airport!!
Emerging Rapper Juice Wrld is dead after he suffered a seizure shortly after landing at a Chicago airport. The cause of death isn’t known as of yet but it appears to be drug-related.
TMZ first reported the rappers death shortly after it occurred. Juice Wrld was rushed to the hospital in Chicago and was later pronounced dead
Juice Wrld recently rose to fame with a number of hit songs, most notably Lucid Dreams which made it to #2 on the billboards. Born Jarad Anthony Huggins, Juice had just turned 21 less than 7 days before his death.
He is the latest of young artists who have died before their 22nd birthdays. In fact, Juice Wrld even had an ep dedicated to XXXtentacion and Lil Peep. Two young artists who died very young, XXX from murder and Peep from an overdose.
New details are emerging about Juice Wrld’s death as the day progress. TMZ also reported that feds had confiscated an estimated 70 pounds of weed from the plane Juice flew in on. Furthermore, people who were aboard the plane have told the police that Juice had taken several unknown pills prior to having the seizure.
However, no definitive cause of death will be known until the autopsy is completed Monday in Chicago.
If Juice Wrld is Dead because of drugs he will be added to the long list of artists who have perished due to drug abuse, including most recently Mac Miller.
The connection between drug use and the music industry is a long and troubled relationship. Some artist feels they need to use drugs to release their talents. However far too many have succumbed to the draw of addiction for this problem to be ignored.
As an America fights with the current “opioid crisis” it is time to really consider the effect prescription drugs are having on the American people. Interestingly enough in this situation is that cops confiscated weed which is still technically illegal. However, the drugs that probably cost Juice Wrld his life are completely legal in every state. This makes one think is legal really about right or wrong or about what is most profitable.
What do you guys think about Juice World being dead at Just 21 years old? Should Big Pharma be held responsible for his death if it is drug-related? Or should we continue to only prosecute when drugs are deemed illegal?
