Juice WRLD Passes Away at 21 after Suffering Seizure

#RIP man. . .

UPDATE: According to TMZ, Juice popped “several unknown pills” before boarding his private plane and suffering his fatal seizure on a flight from Los Angeles to Chicago. The FBI also found 70 pounds of marijuana stashed in luggage on the plane and a bottle of codeine. Shortly after arriving in the Chi at 1am, he was pronounced dead on the way to the hospital. One of his associates told TMZ that he had a Percocet problem.

The Cook County Medical Examiner’s office will perform an autopsy today, to determine the cause of his death.

UPDATE 2: More details about WRLD’s death have surfaced. TMZ reports that the pilot of the plane alerted the authorities about the weapons on the plane and the FBI waited for them to land. Before landing, Juice swallowed Percocet pills, in what one can assume was to hide them from police in what could have contributed to his death. The FAA and FBI later found the marijuana and three registered handguns.

An autopsy has been performed by The Cook County Medical Examiner’s office but toxicology, cardiac pathology and neuropathology is still needed before an official cause of death is ruled in the case.

R.I.P. Juice WRLD.

Original story below.


Early Sunday morning, Juice WRLD and his team were in Chicago, returning home from Los Angeles on a private plane. Unfortunately, the 21-year-old rapper suffered a seizure at Midway Airport, as he reportedly fell down, walking through a terminal.

In initial reports, Juice immediately started bleeding in his mouth, and was rushed to nearby hospital with paramedics. Shortly after arriving at the hospital, he was pronounced dead, as exact details regarding his passing haven’t been made public.

This comes just a few months after his Too Soon EP, as he gave tribute to both XXXTentacion and Lil Peep – also passing away at an early age.
