US hip hop artist Juice WRLD was announced dead today after suffering a seizure in Chicago’s Midway airport.
At just 21-years-old, the artist’s bright future was already underway with his second studio album, Death Race for Love, hitting No.1 on the Billboard 200 chart and #8 on the ARIA charts in March.
The tributes have begun pouring in across social media, from Apple Music’s Zane Lowe to producer Hitboy, to artists like August 08, Juicy J, Action Bronson and more.

I’m at the crib tripping lil bro. I got to really understand your talent level working on death race for love. Watched you freestyle the songs I produced on your album in 20 mins or less sometimes. Certain things in life just feel unfair. This my second time in a year having to write a farewell to one of my musician homies who I consider family. Crazy part about this is I would literally leave nipsey at my studio to work on racks in the middle and push up Hollywood Blvd and Wilcox to help you finish your album. I appreciate the energy you shared with me. You will not be forgotten. Much Love lil bro @juicewrld999
I can’t believe it… you were such a sweet soul. I’ll always remember meeting you and your family on the video set and thinking how close you were. You had so much further to go, you were just getting started. You’ll be missed Juice 💔

This man got me through so much in life & the fact that he’s not here anymore kills me. Felt like yesterday when we were backstage talking about video games and you playing death row on a PSP. Thank you for all the great memories. Rest Easy King Juice. ❤️ #rip @JuiceWorlddd pic.twitter.com/CdUD8FoE9L
