Also heartbroken over the untimely demise of the young rapper, Drake posted an emotional tribute on his Instagram page. “I would like to see all the younger talent live longer and I hate waking up hearing another story filled with blessings was cut short,” he wrote along with a black-and-white picture of the late star.
Juice suffered a seizure at a private hangar at Chicago’s Midway International Airport following a flight from Los Angeles on early Sunday morning. According to reports, his girlfriend revealed that he took Percocet, a painkiller, before he suffered convulsions and went into cardiac arrest.
The “Lucid Dreams” hitmaker briefly woke up after an agent administered two doses of Narcan, an emergency treatment when opioid overdose is suspected, but he was “incoherent.” He was then rushed to Advocate Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn, Illinois, where he was pronounced dead at 3:14 A.M. local time.
Words are Juice swallowed tons of Percocet pills in what was believed to be an attempt to hide them from the feds. Upon their arrival in Chicago, police and federal agents were searching Juice and his entourage’s luggage for guns and drugs because they were alerted about some of the passengers who were carrying contraband.
The drugs might have contributed to his death. An autopsy was performed on the star on Monday, but an official cause of death is still pending while waiting for the results of additional testing, including toxicology, cardiac pathology and neuropathology.
