Juice WRLD, the talented young rapper and singer whose career was just taking off, is dead after suffering a seizure in Chicago’s Midway airport … TMZ has learned.
Juice’s flight from California landed early Sunday morning and, after deplaning … witnesses tell us he suffered the seizure while walking through the airport. Law enforcement sources say he was bleeding from the mouth when paramedics got on scene.
We’re told Juice — real name Jarad Anthony Higgins — was still conscious when he was rushed to a hospital. However, he was pronounced dead a short time later at the hospital. The cause of death is unclear at this time.
Juice Wrld’s major-label career was just starting after he almost climbed to the top of the charts in 2018. His first huge hit came in summer 2018 with “Lucid Dreams” … which made it to #2.
His song, “All Girls Are the Same,” also became a hit when Lil Yachty was featured on the remix.
In fact, it was that song’s success that drew the attention of Interscope Records … which signed him to a multi-million dollar contract. One month after releasing his first studio album, “Goodbye & Good Riddance” … Juice released the 2-track EP, “Too Soon,” as a tribute to Lil Peep and XXXTentacion.
Juice also had a feature on Travis Scott’s enormous “AstroWorld” album, singing the hook on the track, “No Bystanders.”

Juice Wrld just turned 21 last Monday.
