Juice Wrld was supposed to attend own 21st birthday party night of death
Rising hip-hop talent Juice Wrld was set to attend his own 21st birthday party the day he died after suffering an apparent seizure, according to a report.
The rapper, whose legal name is Jarad Anthony Higgins, had turned 21 days earlier and planned to celebrate Sunday night with a fete in his hometown of Chicago, news station WFLD reported.
The “All Girls Are the Same” rapper arrived on a private jet early Sunday to the city’s Midway International Airport, where he experienced a medical emergency, Chicago Police spokesman Anthony Guglielmi told The Post.
Shortly after landing, he was seen “basically convulsing” in a private jet terminal and rushed to an area hospital, where he was pronounced dead, police said.
Police launched an investigation into his death, but there were no obvious signs of foul play, authorities said.
The up-and-coming star — who was named Top New Artist at the 2019 Billboard Music Awards — first made waves in the music scene with his 2018 hit “Lucid Dreams.”
Fellow Chicago artist Chance the Rapper paid tribute to him in an Instagram post on Sunday.
“Millions of people, not just in Chicago but around the world are hurting because of this and don’t know what to make of it,” he wrote. “I’m sorry. Love you and God bless your soul.”
