It is our sad duty to report that former Cali Swag District rapper Cahron “JayAre” Childs died this past Friday. MTV reports that the “Teach Me How To Dougie” rapper was hospitalized for unknown reasons on Thursday night and died hours later on Friday by cardiac arrest. Cali Swag District went on records via Twitter, saying that his death was the result of him suffering from sickle cell anemia.
General Da Smoove of Cali Swag Distric tweeted, “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 jus(sp) saw my bro literally fight for his life I told him ‘I love you bro’ hope’n he heard me.”
JayAre was 25 years old.
Sadly, this is not the first premature death to hit Cali Swag District. Following the 2010 breakthrough of their hit “Teach Me How TO Dougie” Cali Swag District’s Montae “M-Bone” Talbert was murdered in a drive by shooting in 2011. M-Bone was 22 years old when he died.
Our thoughts and prayers are with the group’s family and friends at this difficult time. Thank you for the music. Rest In Peace.
