Young up-and-coming rapper Jarad Anthony Higgins, better known by his stage name Juice WRLD, died earlier today at the age of 21 following a "medical emergency" at Chicago's Midway Airport.

While Juice WRLD was born and lived in Chicago, one of his biggest fans and friends was Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster. This May, Smith-Schuster went to a Juice WRLD concert in Pittsburgh and even took the stage to much cheering from the home crowd, who shouted "F**k A.B.!"

Naturally, upon hearing the news of Juice's death, Smith-Schuster was stunned. He posted this tribute to the deceased rapper on Twitter.

The energy and excitement JuJu took the stage with tells you a lot about his passion for Juice WRLD's content. He won't be forgotten. RIP Juice WRLD.
