One thing everyone always says is "life is never fair," and that rings true for this story in particular. On Sunday, we received the unfortunate news that singer and rapper Juice Wrld had passed away, leaving behind a plethora of fans, friends, family, and longtime girlfriend, Ally Lotti.
Speculation around the rapper's death has been rife, with many different rumors circulating about how he may have died. But now, his untimely death has been confirmed, and it may come as a shock to many of his fans...
For those of you that don't know, this is Juice Wrld.

And as any teenager would do, he rebelled against it.

He took things to another level in 2017.
via: Getty ImagesHe released his full debut EP, 999 which propelled him to the status of "rising star" and it was just onwards and upwards from there.
However, he solidified his fame with the release of "Lucid Dreams."In 2018, the rapper decided to release the track that hit the number 2 spot on the official Billboard Hot 100 chart. This garnered attention from music labels and agents.
He decided to sign with Interscope Records, who gave him a deal worth 3 million dollars.

Fans adored him as his music revolved around topics such as mental health.

So when the news about his death hit social media, it erupted with messages for the rising star.Earlier this year, he won the award for "Top New Artist" beating the likes of Dua Lipa and Ella Mai.
Fans are really shaken by the news of his death."I don't deserve this life," one fan wrote. They have clearly been affected by the news.

His record company has described him as an "exceptional human being."
via: Getty ImagesInterscope Geffen A&M Records said he "made a profound impact on the world in such a short period of time." Those are just the facts because his music took over a massive portion of the world.
But the cause of death has remained uncertain...
via: Getty ImagesChicago police initially only told the BBC that a young man had suffered a "medical emergency." At around 02:00 local time (08:00 GMT), the incident took a turn for the worst and Juice Wrld was taken to hospital, where he was pronounced dead.
But some fans think he knew he was going to die because of certain clues...
1. It all starts with his song "Legends."
via: Getty ImagesIn one of his most famous tracks dedicated to 2 other rappers who have recently died, twenty-year-old "XXXTentacion" and twenty-one-year-old Lil Peep, he rapped these lyrics: "What's the 27 Club? We ain't making it past twenty-one. I been going through paranoia..."
Is it just a coincidence?
via: Getty ImagesOnly last week did Juice tweet about his twenty-first birthday and how it was "one of his best [birthdays]" yet.
2. Secondly, we have this tweet from last week.
Have a look for yourselves:
This life is yours do what tf you want do great things and change the world don’t let no one tell you SHIT.. and yo… https://t.co/A0adP51TaL— . (@.)1575212515.0
3. And the third clue involves another previous tweet.
He tweeted saying he was going to "fake his death."
via: Twitter"My goal is to get overly famous, shine for a couple of years..then fake my death." Now people are questioning if this is really true. Did he fake his death?
Sadly, it looks like his death is for real.
The rapper died after he suffered a fatal seizure...
via: GettyWhich was induced by an overdose of Percocet painkillers.
Juice's luggage was searched for drugs and guns at Chicago Midway Airport on Sunday...
via: GettyAnd the rapper reportedly swallowed the painkillers in a bid to hide them from the officers.
The pilot flying the musician's jet grew suspicious of Juice...
via: GettyAnd alerted the police that he may be in possession of drugs and contraband.
The police met Juice at the airport...
via: GettyAnd as officers began searching through his and his entourage's suitcases, which were found to contain seventy pounds of marijuana and 6 bottles of prescription codeine cough syrup, the up and coming artist was reportedly seen swallowing several of the Percocet pills, in what witnesses believe was an attempt to hide them. Juice's 2 bodyguards were arrested by the police at the airport after they were found to be in possession of the 3 guns found in the search, in addition to a high-capacity magazine and metal-piercing bullets.
The consumption of these pills likely contributed to the musician's premature death...
via: GettyAs, shortly after swallowing the drugs, he began "convulsing", and then went into the seizure that ultimately killed him. An official autopsy will take place on Monday. Rest in peace, Juice Wrld.
