Chicago-born rapper Juice Wrld, real name Jarad Anthony Higgins, has died at the age of 21. Authorities have not released details about his cause of death.
He was pronounced dead at a local hospital at 3:15 a.m this morning, and taken to the Cook County medical examiner’s office several hours later, according to office spokeswoman Natalia Derevyanny, who said an autopsy would take place Monday.
Chicago police launched a death investigation after a 21-year-old male experiencing a “medical emergency” was transported from Midway to an area hospital. Chicago Fire Department spokesman Larry Langford said the man experienced cardiac arrest and was taken to a hospital from a small hangar at Midway, away from the main terminal, where private planes land.
