Juice Wrld sang ‘I feel like John Lennon’ before death on SAME DAY as murdered Beatle – fuelling conspiracy theories

JUICE Wrld’s rap lyrics predicted his own death on the anniversary of John Lennon’s murder, fans claim.
The Chicago rapper – who died from a suspected overdose on Sunday exactly 39 years after the Beatle – had a hit last year with the lyrics: “Really feel like John Lennon”.

Juice also predicted he would “not make it past 21” in another track last year.
He turned 21 just six days before his death at Chicago’s Midway airport in the early hours of December 8.
That is the same date John Lennon was gunned down outside his New York apartment building in 1980.
The eerie coincidences have fuelled conspiracy theories after it emerged the rapper once said it was his “goal” to fake his death once he got famous.
Last night details emerged of his last moments after a private jet flight from LA to Chicago with around 12 pals for a belated birthday bash.
Cops were waiting to search them after a tip-off they were carrying drugs and hollowpoint bullets.
Juice is said to have swallowed Percocet painkiller pills as the jet was taken to a hangar, then began convulsing.
One federal agent administered two doses of anti-opioid Narcan to the unconscious rapper.
He woke briefly and was “incoherent” but died soon after in hospital, police said.
But some fans were left clinging to hopes he might still be alive as conspiracy theories spread online.

Juice’s 2018 hit All Girls Are The Same includes the lyrics: “I’m a jealous boy, really feel like John Lennon.
“I just want real love, guess it’s been a minute.”
Another track from last year, Legends, mentions the “27 Club” of musicians who died at that age such as Jimi Hendrix and Amy Winehouse.
He raps: “What’s the 27 Club? We ain’t making it past 21.
“They tell me I’ma be a legend. I don’t want that title now.
“Cause all the legends seem to die out. What the f*** is this about?”
All three rappers shot to fame on the music sharing site SoundCloud where they won millions of fans.
Juice Wrld – real name Jarad Higgins – was rap’s rising star who was named Top New Artist at the Billboard Awards in May after a string of chart hits and a number one album.
Yesterday we told how he had tweeted in April 2017: “My goal is to get overly famous, shine for a couple years.. then fake my death.”
Desperate fans dug up the tweet hoping this was what he had done.
One follower wrote: “For the love of all that is holy I pray to God this is fake and he is really just faking it.”
Another theory sweeping the internet today centred on Juice’s Falcon 900 private jet – which flight trackers show was nowhere near Chicago on Sunday.
Fans hoped that meant he was on board when it landed in the Bahamas hours after police say he died.
However the last pictures of the star and his entourage on social media show they flew on a different plane.
The pilot is said to have called ahead to alert police to drugs and weapons on board.
Officers waiting with sniffer dogs found 70lbs of cannabis as well as cocaine and prescription drugs.

And two of the group were charged with possessing handguns, high-capacity magazines and metal-piercing bullets.
Juice had spoken candidly about his habit of taking of “lean”, a toxic concoction of prescription cough syrup and the painkillers Percocet and Xanax.
His girlfriend Ally Lotti is reported to have told police he had taken an unknown number of pills when he collapsed with a seizure at around 2am.
The results of toxicology tests are expected to confirm the cause of death.
