Juice Wrld’s biggest hit was Lucid Dreams, released in 2018 by Grade-A Production and Interscope Records. The song was previously published on Soundcloud in June 2017. The music video for Lucid Dreams was released in 2018 as well.  Lucid Dreams peaked at number two on Billboard’s Hot 100 and became one of the biggest streams of 2018. After Juice Wrld’s death, his music streams went up by more than 400 percent.

On December 8, Juice Wrld had a seizure at the Chicago Midway International Airport. He was transferred from the airport to Advocate Christ Medical Center. The cause of the seizure remains unknown, but early reports suggest it was a reaction to drugs. Juice Wrld died at age 21 just six days after his birthday.

Juice Wrld was a great artist and an amazing musician. I wasn’t a huge fan, but I did like him. His music helped out a lot of people with problems and got them through their day.
