Juice WRLD was allegedly in deep according to new reports that claim 70 pounds of marijuana and a bottle of codeine syrup were removed and seized from his flight following his death.

Witnesses on the flight also claim to have seen the rapper consume pills at some point of the flight before he ultimately suffered a seizure and died at the airport.

Another witness told law enforcement that Juice Wrld had a Percocet problem.

The news follows his label’s statement on his death:

“Juice made a profound impact on the world in such a short period of time. He was a gentle soul, whose creativity knew no bounds, an exceptional human being and artist who loved and cared for his fans above everything else. To lose someone so kind and so close to our hearts is devastating. Our thoughts are with Juice’s family and friends, everyone at his label Grade A, and his millions of fans around the world.”

Lil Peep passed after overdosing of fentanyl and generic Xanax in 2017. Mac Miller followed in 2018 from an overdose of fentanyl, along with cocaine and alcohol.


Updates: Juice WRLD’s pilot allegedly alerted officials that some members onboard the private flight to Chicago had weapons. He may also have tipped them off about other suspicions of potential contraband on the plane. They were waiting for the flight to land in order to conduct a search.

New information from witnesses also points to Juice swallowing several pills in an effort to hid them from investigators. A witness also told police he’d become addicted recently, and he was open about it in his music.

All told, investigators removed 70 pounds of marijuana, half a dozen sealed bottles of prescription codeine syrup, two 9 mm pistols, and several other weapons and ammunition.

Two of his bodyguards were arrested on weapons charges, though one was released without bail and the other released after posting bail.
