Cali Swag District rapper JayAre is dead after losing a battle with sickle cell anemia. The rapper, 25, passed away on Friday.
Jay was hospitalized Thursday for unknown reasons, and hours went into into cardiac arrest and died.
Member General Da Smoove tweeted last night:
“Sickle cell took my brother away from me today … with that being said, I’m proud to know that with that disease he made the best of his life … I just saw my bro literally fight for his life. I told him, ‘I love you bro,’ hope’n he heard me.”
It’s the second loss for the group. In 2011, CSD member M-Bone was also murdered in a drive-by shooting.
