Juice WRLD was born Jarad Anthony Higgins in Chicago. His parents divorced when he was three years old, leaving his mom, a student teacher, to raise him alongside one older brother.
Jarad Higgins and his mom moved all over Chicago's south suburbs, in part to find a school where he wouldn't misbehave. He told NME that his mother "tried to keep me away from the streets as much as possible."
Jarad's mom didn't let him listen to hip-hop, but his older cousins introduced him to some of the classic acts. "They put me on to Cassidy, one of the best battle rappers to do it; Meek Mill, when he had the braids," he told Billboard. "They gave me substance."
