Listen to Cali Swag District on iHeartRadio

Rapper JayAre of Cali Swag District is dead.  MTV News reports that the 25-year-old emcee passed away Friday after going into cardiac arrest.  He was admitted into the hospital Thursday evening. 

Born Cahron Childs, JayAre suffered from sickle-cell anemia.  Fellow Cali Swag District member Smoove Da General mourned his partner on Twitter, saying he's "proud" that JayAre was able to make "the best of his life" while living with sickle-cell disease.  

JayAre is the second member of Cali Swag District to pass away.  In 2011, Montae "M-Bone" Talbert was killed in a drive by shooting.
