Rapper died last-place month at 21 after reported seizure following ground at Chicago airport
The rapper Juice WRLD’s official cause of death has been ruled an accidental overdose. The Cook county medical examiner’s office cited toxic levels of codeine and oxycodone in Juice WRLD’s system in the finding, secreted on Wednesday.
” Higgins died as a result of oxycodone and codeine toxicity ,” the office wrote in a statement.” The manner of fatality is accident .”
Juice WRLD, real figure Jarad Anthony Higgins, died on 8 December. Reports claim he recruited a drug-induced convulsion after his private jet property at Chicago’s Midway airport, where police and federal agents confiscated artilleries, lozenges, and over 70 lb of dopes. Higgins was temporarily revived with a dosage of the opioid antidote narcan but died at a hospital shortly after. He was 21 years old.
Higgins was known for penning lyrics that addressed craving and dose habit. He was candid in his music about abusing the drink lean- which includes codeine cough syrup- secreting an addiction-centric song named Lean With Me in 2018.
Cook county’s announcement comes as pop culture continues to reckon with the rapper’s sudden death.
Last week, Eminem released a collaboration he recorded with Higgins shortly before his death, titled Monsters. Shortly after, 26 unreleased sungs by Higgins were disclosed online by an unnamed hacker. Higgins’ devotees responded to Wednesday’s ruling with an outpouring of fan-made art and tributes to his music.
Carmella Wallace, Higgins’ father, told TMZ she hoped her son’s death promoted awareness around addiction.” We hope these discussions he begin in his music and his gift are helpful in others prevail their debates as “thats what” he demanded more than anything ,” she said.
