He briefly woke up but was "incoherent" after an agent administered two doses of the anti-overdose medication Narcan, but he was pronounced dead at 3:14 a.m. local time at Advocate Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn, Ill. Behind him, images of Juice Wrld were projected on large screens.
According to Forbes, Juice WRLD passed away after having a seizure at Midway airport in Chicago, IL. The Cook County Medical Examiner is reportedly conducting an autopsy on the Chicago native Monday.
His 2018 hit "Lucid Dreams" is No. 1 on Apple Music's Top 100: US and Spotify's United States Top 50 as of Monday morning, the same day that new details about Juice Wrld's final hours are coming to light.
The rapper, who was named top new artist at the 2019 Billboard Music Awards in May, lived in the Chicago suburb of Homewood where he stood out as a musician early on.
In a now-uncovered tweet from July 8, five months before he died, the 21-year-old hinted at abusing the opioid drug known as codeine in a public apology to his girlfriend, Ally Lotti. Working in the wake of superstars like Drake and Post Malone, whose emotional, highly melodic hip-hop has served as pop's dominant sound in the 2010s, Juice WRLD began posting songs, some of which he'd recorded on his phone, while he was still in high school.
"All Girls Are the Same" has since accumulated more than 389 million Spotify streams, but it's been eclipsed by a song from 9 9 9, "Lucid Dreams", which got a video in May 2018.
The rapper also appeared on Travis Scott's chart-topping album Astroworld, singing the hook on No Bystanders. In 2017, rapper Lil Peep died of an accidental drug overdose at the age of 21. "We ain't making it past 21".
While Juice WRLD had a great career purely based off of his first album, he had so much left to do in the world of music.
Country-rap star Lil Nas X paid tribute to Juice Wrld by covering the late rapper's hit "Lucid Dreams" during a San Francisco concert.
Juice Wrld's songs are five of Apple Music's six most-played songs and five of Spotify's top seven songs.
