A Legend Has Died

A Legend Has Died

Young rapper Juice Wrld suffered a medical emergency shortly after arriving at Chicago’s Midway International on December 8th. Juice, who was born Jarad Anthony Higgins, turned 21 on December 2 and died shortly after in the hospital.

Many people believe his death was faked due to the conspiracies behind the death. Juice Wrld tweeted on April 25, 2017, “My goal is to get overly famous, shine for a couple years … then fake my death.”

In one of his hits in 2018 “All Girls Are the Same,” the young artist sang and wrote, “I’m a jealous boy, really feel like John Lennon.” John Lennon died on December 8th, 1980, as did the young rapper on December 8th, 2019.

Another conspiracy is the trend on TikTok that started to go viral rapidly. The song “Lucid Dreams,” written by Juice Wrld, started a trend where everyone would fake a seizure while listening to it, which is what this rapper died from. TMZ News says, “Cops say he swallowed percs…” and in his song, “Rich and Blind” the song lyrics say, “They tell me the death of me gon’ be the Perkys.”

One of the last conspiracies involves the deaths of many rappers lost over the years. Cameron Boyce (age 20), XXXTentacion (age 20), and most recently Juice Wrld (age 21). All of these young men posted a photo with only one eye showing right before their death. All of these photos of them with one eye were posted on Instagram as the last post before they each died.

The last one is Juice Wrld died in Chicago’s Airport, Jahseh Onfroy (XXXTentacion) died on Deerfield Beach, FL, and Lil peep died in Tucson, AZ. These three deaths make a triangle, which is the Cinderella definition.

The middle of the triangle comes out to be Arkansas, and in the middle of Arkansas is a street right next to a juice bar named Cinderella Circle. “Cinderella” is Mac Miller’s song, who died at age 26.

These three deaths make a Cinderella triangle, defined as: one suffering undeserved neglect or one suddenly lifted from obscurity to honor or significance. All of a sudden all of these rappers became someone from nothing.

People are confused on what to believe and many are in shock that we lost one of America’s most loved rappers. The American rapper, song writer, and singer will be missed by many.
