The Chicago rapper was on the fast track for success. He rose to the top of the charts after just two years.

Juice WRLD made his debut with the hit single “All Girls Are the Same" in 2018. His two hit albums are "Goodbye & Good Riddance" and "Death Race for Love"

“People say that they can hear the rock influence, the Blink-182 influence, the emo influence in my music, but on this album, you can hear ev-er-y-thing,” Juice WRLD told Rolling Stone.

“I have songs for the trap house, songs for the sock hop, songs for the Caribbeans, songs for raves, songs for slow dancing.”

He almost seemed to predict his unfortunate death in his song "Legends."

“What’s the 27 Club? / We ain’t making it past 21,” Higgins said on the track. “They tell me I’m a be a legend / I don’t want that title now / ‘Cause all the legends seem to die out / What the f--k is this about?”
