Fans of rapper Juice WRLD are trying to come to grips with the shocking news of his passing at age 21.

Juice WRLD, whose real name is Jarad Anthony Higgins, was pronounced dead at 3:14 a.m. on Sunday at Advocate Christ Medical Center in Illinois,CBS News reported. Authorities say it was after he had a "medical emergency" at Chicago's Midway International Airport. 

TMZ originally reported that Higgins had just landed in Chicago after a flight from California and was walking through Midway when he reportedly suffered a seizure. 

Law Enforcement sources reportedly told the outlet that Higgins was bleeding from his mouth by the time paramedics reached him.

An autopsy conducted Monday by the Cook County Medical Examiner's Office did not determine Higgins' cause of death. According to the New York Times, cardiac pathology, neuropathology, and toxicology studies all need to also be administered.

Authorities are also revealing more about what was on Higgins' private jet—including 70 pounds of marijuana, six bottles of prescription codeine cough syrup and three firearms, including a high-capacity ammunition magazine.

Juice WRLD had just begun his music career on a high note.

After originally releasing the track on SoundCloud in 2017, “Lucid Dreams,” soared to #2 on Billboard’s Hot 100 charts the following year. It happened not long after the Chicago native snagged a deal with Interscope Records.

The album that single was featured on, “Goodbye and Good Riddance,” peaked at #6 on the Billboard 200.

On social media, many are referencing a particular lyric from Higgins' song, "Legends," featured on his "Too Soon" EP that they say is eerie. "What's the 27 club? We ain't making it past 21," he sings.

Higgins’ fans are continuing to fill social media with messages of disbelief. “No f***ing way... I wasn't expecting this. We ain't making it past 21...Will never forget u!!” one man wrote.

“Not Juice Wrld Bro. No plz no. I love you bro. Rip Juice Wrld,” one fan wrote.

“First concert I ever went to was yours and im gonna miss the energy you gave off. Fly high bro,” said another on Twitter.
