Big Scarr, a 22-year-old rapper from Memphis, reportedly found dead
It appears that Memphis rapper Big Scarr has passed away at the age of 22; his death has been seemingly verified by Gucci Mane.
The death rumours began spreading on Thursday night, and the star, whose real name was Alexander Woods, was a member of Gucci Mane’s 1017 Records.
In a heartfelt Instagram post, The Shade Room broke the news of the musician’s passing, posting a photo of him alongside the words “Our thoughts are with his loved ones at this time.”
Then Gucci Mane appeared to confirm the rumours in an emotional post of his own. He posted three photos of the young celebrity, two of which showed him in performance, and added, “This hurt. I’m a miss you @bigscarr.”
Local law enforcement has not issued a statement in response to the news of his death.
On the other hand, when word spread, more and more admirers and fellow musicians posted tributes online.
DJ Akademiks, a 31-year-old Jamaican-American podcaster and YouTuber, paid respect by tweeting, “RIP Big Scarr.”
Enchanting, who is also signed to the 1017 label, appeared to corroborate this on her Instagram Stories by writing, “‘Ion wanna talk. Sorry if I don’t answer. I just can’t.” She then added a broken heart emoji to the message.
She posted a picture of the actor and wrote, “My babbbyyy my best friend my son I love you forever & im so sorry.
“Love you so so much. Know I would do anything for you.”
She later posted a video of the two of them hugging with the caption, “I’ll do anything to hug you one more time,” beside a broken heart emoji.
