This morning, we woke up to tributes of Juice WRLD all over social media. The rapper, who had just turned 21 on December 2, is most famous for his breakout hit song “Lucid Dreams.” I first take this opportunity to offer my condolences to his fans among our Kenyan comrade community. If indeed he has passed on, we have lost exceptional talent.

Conspiracy theorists are making a killing out of Juice’s death. They’ve taken the opportunity to draw our attention to several significant coincidences surrounding the star’s untimely demise. For example, in the lyrics to one of his hit songs – ‘All Girls Are The Same’ – Juice says that he feels like John Lennon. John Lennon was a singer-songwriter who died on December 8th 1980 from an assassination.

Also, Juice – if he is really dead – has died at the age of 21. In his lyrics for Legends – another of his hit songs – he says that he belongs to the 27 club and that they ain’t making it past 21.

To further fuel the conspiracy theory, in 2017, Juice had tweeted that, “My goal is to get overly famous, shine for a couple years… then fake my death” This has left lingering doubts of whether he is really dead.

However, according to several reputable publications, including CNN, NY Times and BBC, and according to his record label – Interscope Records, Juice WRLD really is dead. He got a seizure at a Chicago airport shortly after landing. There are reports that the rapper popped a couple of pills prior to the seizures. The seizures had him rushed to a hospital, where he was pronounced dead. The cause of death hasn’t been determined and we are waiting on the Cook County medical examiner to perform an autopsy on Juice’s body on Monday. 2 of his security guards were arrested for bringing fire arms into an airport.

According to TMZ, a celebrity news webiste, 70 pounds of Marijuana and a bottle of codeine cough syrup was recovered from the rapper’s plane.

Fellow artists such as Drake, Lil Yachty, The Weeknd and Ellie Goulding took to social media to pass their condolences. After his death, Juice’s “Lucid Dreams” has become the most streamed song on Spotify in the United States. Mental health, mortality and drug use have been the main themes in Juice WRLD’s songs.
