Juice Wrld died suddenly at the age of just 21 today, and it seems he predicted that he would die young in his lyrics.

In his 2018 track Legends, the rapper - whose real name was Jarad Anthony Higgins - spoke about not making it past 21.

He rapped: "What's the 27 club? We ain't making it past 21."

The song was a tribute to late rappers XXXTentacion and Lil Peep, who died in 2018 and 2017, respectively.

In another line he talks about not wanting to be called a "legend", because legends seem to die young as his friends did.
