Cali Swag District, best known for their hit "Teach Me How to Dougie", is mourning the loss of another of its members. JayAre whose real name is Cahron Childs passed away Friday, June 6 at the young age of 25. He reportedly went into cardiac arrest and passed away in the hospital while being treated for sickle cell anemia.
"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," fellow member Smoove Da General took to Twitter to grieve. "Rest in peace Jayare I'm gonna miss u forever ..I will never get over this..but I know God got u..and I know You got me."
Bandmate Yung wrote on Instagram, " LORD! I no im not suppose to question you, but if it was cell phone in heaven ill b texting you... Really all i ask, is why? Because i dont no what to do! ...
