The rapper has died at the age of just 21...

American rapper Juice WRLD has died, it has been confirmed.

TMZ reports that the rap star suffered a seizure while leaving Chicago's Midway airport, leading to emergency services being called.

Despite being taken to hospital the rapper - who celebrated his 21st birthday less than a week ago - was pronounced dead by health services.

Police spokes-person Anthony Guglielmi told the Chicago Sun Times that there were "no signs of foul play" in his death.

It's a staggeringly cruel blow - Clash spoke to Juice WRLD a matter of months ago, and found a focussed, vastly creative artist, still coming to grips with his own potential.

News quickly brought a raft of tributes from across the music spectrum.
