The rapper, born Jarad Anthony Higgins, suffered a seizure shortly after deplaning from a California outbound flight.  Law enforcement confirmed he was bleeding from the mouth when paramedics arrived on the scene.

Higgins was still conscious when he was rushed to a hospital but was pronounced dead a short time later upon arriving.  He was born and raised in the Chicago area.

Chicago police spokesman Anthony Guglielmi said in a statement that “there were no signs of foul play and all individuals aboard the aircraft are cooperating with CPD and have given all of their information. We are awaiting the Cook County medical examiner on the cause and manner of death.”

Higgins grew up in the south suburbs of Chicago and attended Homewood-Flossmoor High School. In March of last year, he signed a reported $3 million deal with Interscope after his EP “Juice Wrld 999” racked up millions of streams on SoundCloud. He released his second album, “Death Race for Love,” this past spring, and it hit No. 1 on the album chart. He toured Europe with Nicki Minaj on a co-headlining bill this year.
