On December 2, 1998, in Chicago, Illinois, Jarad Anthony Higgins became Juice WRLD. His parents separated when he was a little child, and his father fled. His mother reared him and his older brother. She was pretty pious and only permitted him to listen to rock and pop; she forbade him from listening to rap or hip-hop.
Playing video games exposed him to musical acts like Blink-182, Black Sabbath, Billy Idol, and Fall Out Boy. He started learning the piano at four and later picked up the guitar and drums. He was a trumpet player in his high school band as well.
Juice Wrld used drugs and alcohol frequently as a child and a teenager. In the sixth grade, he started using lean Coke with hydrocodone cough medicine. He started using Xanax and Percocet and smokes within a few years. He began using his iPhone to record music in high school and uploaded it to the Soundcloud website. Even as a young child, his musical abilities and interests were evident; yet, he didn’t become genuinely engaged in rap until he was sixteen.
He enjoyed freestyling with his pals, and they encouraged him to do so professionally. Chief Keef became one of his initial influences and favourite artists after he started making records and listening to more rap. He also thought Kid Cudi, Travis Scott, Eminem, and Odd Future were influential rappers.
How Did Juice Wrld Start His Career?
Juice Wrld penned and recorded his debut song, “Forever,” while a sophomore in high school and shared it on Soundcloud in 2015. He used the username “JuicetheKidd” on his posts because he admired the late rapper Tupac, who played the lead role in the movie “Juice.” He chose “Juice Wrld” because it symbolized him conquering the globe once he was a more well-known artist.
When a record company spotted him, he already had a sizable Soundcloud following and was prominent in the hip-hop scene for his distinctive sound. Higgins obtained employment in a factory to help support himself while working on the songs for his debut EP, but he was let go after just two weeks. Fortunately, he had signed with the LA-based musical label and production company Internet Money Records, so he wouldn’t need a side job to make money. The label concentrates on emerging musicians who begin their careers on social media.
Juice Wrld’s debut full-length album, “9, 9, 9,” featuring the famous song “Lucid Dreams,” was released in the summer of 2017. After the album’s release, other hip-hop artists, including Waka Flocka Flame and Chicago rapper Lil Bibby, began to notice him as his fan base quickly expanded. He obtained a record deal with Grade A Productions, a Lil Bibby-co-owned recording facility, and later that year released an EP that contained the smash song “All Girls Are the Same.”
He was well-known in the hip-hop scene as of December 2017, and after releasing a music video for the song in early 2018, he inked a $3 million deal with Interscope Records. In May 2018, Higgins filmed a music video for “Lucid Dreams” and released it as a single. It reached its peak on the Billboard Hot 100 at position two. Later that month, he published “Goodbye & Good Riddance,” his debut studio album.
How Did He Die?
On December 8, 2019, Juice had a terrible seizure at Chicago’s Midway Airport after coming off an aircraft from Chicago. TMZ said he was bleeding from the lips when the paramedics came.
The rapper had toxic quantities of oxycodone and codeine in his system when he had the seizure, although first testing was inconclusive. According to reports, paramedics attempted to save him for 40 minutes before bringing him to the hospital around 2.55 a.m.
But sadly, Juice had already passed away when they arrived at 3.06 am. Law enforcement officers discovered six bottles of prescription codeine cough medication, 70 pounds of marijuana, two 9mm pistols, a 40-calibre pistol, a high-capacity magazine, and a metal-piercing bullet on his aircraft. He overdosed accidentally, it was determined.
What Were Juice WRLD’s Hit Songs?
Despite having a relatively brief career, the rapper’s debut album, Goodbye & Good Riddance, was a sure hit, peaking at No. 4 on the Billboard 200 list and No. 25 in the UK.
But his third album, Death Race For Love, peaked at No. 23 in the UK, giving him his first US chart-topping position. The rising star’s smash tune Lucid Dreams, which peaked at No. 2 on the US Billboard singles list and No. 10 on the UK singles chart, dazzled the music scene in 2018.
Juice WRLD has worked with a variety of international musicians during his career, including K-pop group BTS, Future, and Ellie Goulding. He was also included on Travis Scott’s AstroWorld album. The rapper took Future’s spot as the opening act for Nicki Minaj’s 19-date European tour in the early months of 2019.
Juice WRLD would release a postmortem single; it was announced on December 1, 2020. On the December 2, 2020, release of Real S**t, the late rapper teamed up with Benny Blanco.
