HOW JUICE WLRD BECAME A RAPPER?
Very early in his childhood his father left, he then left his mother alone to raise him with his brother, he was only 3 years old when this happened. His mother having strong beliefs and therefore being religious and conservative did not allow Jarad to listen to Hip-Hop music. He discovered the world of music through video games like Guitar Hero and Tony Hawk's Pro Skater, a game very famous in the world of streetwear which also marked our childhood.
Given his rather difficult childhood and adolescence Jared Higgins, he started using drugs and drinking alcohol very early. He even had to stop afterwards because of health problems, a good lesson in life.
He started playing music at the age of 4 after seeing his mother play herself. He started piano, then drums and guitar, and quickly fell in love with music and started taking it more seriously! It was in high school that he started to publish sounds on soundcloud in order to make himself known!
THE CAREER OF JUICE WRLD
Juice Wrld has developed fairly quickly as an artist! From his start in high school, he released his first title under the name "Forever" in 2015, at the beginning his artist name was "JuiceTheKidd".

"Lucid Dreams" lasts four minutes. The song is structured around a sample of the 1993 Sting song "Shape of My Heart". There is a rumor that Sting filed a complaint against Higgins for using this sample without his permission.
In October 2019, members of the YellowCard group sued Juice claiming that his music was a copy of the title "Shape Of My Heart" the group is asking for $ 15 million.

THE DEATH OF JUICE WRLD
When Jarad Anthony Higgins, better known as rapper Juice WRLD, died at the age of 21 on December 8, 2019.
It is a great loss for everyone because Jarad Higgins was an artist with a unique style and he is an artist that we would all have liked to see evolve in the world of music with ever more innovative titles!
Despite his death, one could suspect a premature departure, because he expressed in his songs an unstable health and a life that was bathed in drugs and alcohol. This is also explained because it started very early and the world of music is very rough and demanding!
Like many rappers, his addictions lead him to a fairly certain young end and he himself knew it, that is perhaps why his music is very emotional and that we are easily carried away by the vibes!
In the sound "Legends" he says himself "we ain’t making it past 21". He then expresses through poignant words that he will not exceed the age of 21 years.
