In the first video DJ Akademiks posted on Twitter, Juice can be seen to be in high spirits, chatting with his friends and playing a practical joke on a member of his coterie.

JUICE WRLD PHOPHESISED OWN DEATH AT 21
Reports indicate that Juice reached the hospital alive, but passed away shortly after, despite the doctors' best efforts.
Witnesses at the airport revealed that Juice seemed to have suffered an epileptic seizure, and had had blood in his mouth, but no official cause of death has been announced.
Fans now recall Juice's prophetic lyrics in his song "Legends" in which he sang:
"What's the 27 club? We ain't making it past 21."
The song he wrote about rappers like Tupac and XXX Tentacion who died before their time, now seems to announce his own death.
Juice is the second young and promising talent felled by epilepsy this year after Disney star Cameron Boyce also succumbed to a seizure in July. He was just 20.
Juice Wrld, born Jarad Anthony Higgins, had turned 21 on December 2. He didn't make it past 21. Our hearts go out to his family.
R.I.P. Juice Wrld.
Juice Wrld just turned 21 last Monday.
