According to reports, during the raid Juice WRLD swallowed a bunch of pills attempting to hide them from the federal agents. It seems, the action proved fatal. Witnesses on scene said he was taking a grip of Percocet when cops boarded the plane. Percocet contains a combination of acetaminophen and oxycodone.
The 21-year-old rapper is known for rapping about the use of Sizzurp which consists of drinking the cough syrup, Codeine. It's unclear if he was already consuming it on the plane, or if he drank it when law enforcement boarded his plane.
