The gaming and streaming community has paid tribute to Juice WRLD, a young but already acclaimed music artist who had been influential in the scene, after he died suddenly at age 21 on December 8.

As reported by TMZ, the Chicago-born rapper and singer, real name Jarad Higgins, died from a seizure in Chicago’s Midway airport.

As well as attaining mainstream success with his hits like Lucid Dreams, Juice WRLD was massively popular within the gaming and esports scene especially. He even pushed for streamers to play his music on stream following copyright concerns.

The Come Up Show / Wikimedia CommonsJuice Wrld was beloved by the streaming community, who he supported playing his music on stream.

The rapper apologized to Twitch streamers in June of 2018 after numerous channels were struck down by bans for playing his music, stating: “My apologies for the people that got banned for listening to my music while streaming…I will do what I can to prevent that from happening again.”

Only two days prior to his death, top streamer Ninja had revealed that JuiceWRLD was the number one artist he had listened to throughout 2019.

Ninja led tributes to the late rapper, saying he was “heartbroken” by the news. Countless other streamers were also left devastated by the news.

Professional esports players including CS:GO pros Dev1ce and NAFFLY, and Call of Duty pros Tommey and Censor also sent out messages following the news, among many others.

YouTubers also paid tribute to the rapper, including No Jumper’s Adam22, who had featured JuiceWRLD on his podcast in Septemeber 2018.

Lil Yachty and Lil Nas X, two of Juice Wrld’s contemporaries, were stunned by the news. Lil Yachty featured on a remix of another of Higgin’s biggest hits, ‘All girls are the same’.

Juice Wrld was an avid fan of video games and had always been supportive of the culture, even donning a video game-style cover art for his ‘Death Race for Love’ album – his second, and now final album, of his career.

TMZ report that he was rushed to hospital, but was pronounced dead a short time later on the morning of December 8.

Dixie D’Amelio and Noah Beck are one of TikTok’s most popular couples — but fans were distraught after the two seemed to unfollow each other on social media, sparking breakup rumors.

Dixie and Noah have long been an item in the TikTok fandom; after parting ways with Griffin Johnson amid allegations of cheating last year, Dixie began spending quite a lot of time with Noah, leading fans to suspect they were secretly dating.

After quite some time of claiming they were merely “besties,” Noah officially revealed he and Dixie were dating in October 2020, and the two seemed to be going strong all this time — until January.

On January 22, eagle-eyed fans noticed that Dixie had unfollowed Noah on Instagram, sparking rumors that the two lovebirds had called it quits over undisclosed drama.

The situation became even more confusing after Dixie re-followed Noah a short time later, leaving fans completely befuddled and curious as to what prompted the social media distancing.

Luckily, it doesn’t seem to be related to relationship issues, at all; instead, Dixie laughingly explained that she’d had a classic case of salt after losing a game against her boyfriend and decided to unfollow him in an elaborate joke.

“BAHAHAHAHA! I lost in a game and was being a sore loser, but forgot to re-follow him, lol!” Dixie wrote in an Instagram comment responding to fan speculation.

However, it seems that Noah and Dixie did get into a real argument some time beforehand, with Dixie admitting in an unreleased portion of her ‘2 Chix’ podcast on January 21 that she had deleted all her Instagram stories with Noah as a result of their spat.

“Noah and I got into an argument this morning, and I deleted the stories that I had of me and him together and unliked his photo,” she explained. “And all the Doah fan pages freaked out, and were like, ‘What is happening?’ ‘No way!’”
