She did not approve of the boys' fascination with hip-hop culture but allowed them to listen to rock and pop music. The rapper's style was influenced by Black Sabbath, Fall Out Boy, and Panic! at the Disco.

Due to family problems, Higgins became addicted to drugs. He started with codeine and then moved on to heavier drugs. In the last year at school, the guy showed health problems, but he could not give up the addiction.


Juice WRLD has been taking music lessons since he was 4 years old. He played the piano, inspired by his mother's example, and later became interested in the guitar and drums. While at school, Jared began writing raps, recording tracks on his phone, and posting them on the SoundCloud page. The guy took on the pseudonym JuicetheKidd as a tribute to his idol Tupac Shakur and his role in the movie "Authority" (Juice). In an interview with The Guardian, Higgins admitted that his inner experiences pushed him to create songs, which he spilled into the lines of the compositions.

After completing his studies at school, the singer got a job at a factory but was dissatisfied with the working conditions. Meanwhile, the number of listens to his tracks was growing rapidly, and Jared was seriously thinking about a career as a musician. He changed his pseudonym and began collaborating with the Internet Money network organization and producer Nick Myra and released the song Too Much Cash.

A breakthrough in the creative biography of the rapper was the release of EP "9 9 9". Lucid Dreams hit # 2 on the Billboard Hot 100 and drew the attention of listeners around the world to Juice WRLD's music. And the clip, directed by Cole Bennett, has received millions of views on YouTube. This brought the guy contacts with labels such as Grade A Productions and Interscope Records.

The singer began working on his debut album, which expanded the discography in 2018 called Goodbye & Good Riddance. The release entered the top 10 music ratings in the USA, Canada, and Norway. As a result of sales, the disc received platinum certification. After that, Jared started recording EP Too Soon ..., which he wanted to honor the memory of the early departed idols Lil Peep and XXXTentacion.

Despite the high productivity, many of Juice WRLD's tracks remained unpublished. This became known after the hacking of his Google Drive, which happened in 2018. More than 100 compositions have leaked to the Network, among which was joint with the group The Chainsmokers.
