He was born Jarad Anthony Higgins but made his name as Juice WRLD. He derived his stage name from the late American rapper Tupac Shakur and his part in the film Juice.
In Higgins’ short life he experienced enormous success – his song Lucid Dreams has been streamed over a billion times and peaked at number two on the American Billboard Hot 100.
After he died, just six days after his twenty-first birthday on December 8, 2019 at Chicago’s Midway International Airport, there was an outpouring of grief across social media and from the music industry. His first posthumous album, Legends Never Die, debuted at number one on the Billboard 200 making it the most successful posthumous chart debut in over 20 years.
We honour the memory of Juice WRLD with a radio station playing only his music.
