Rapper Braxton “Brax” Baker has died aged 21.
The musician's mother, Letricia Loftin Russell, announced the heartbreaking news on Thursday (November 5), writing that her “Angel Has Ascended.”
Braxton’s cause of death has not yet been announced.
Baker gained attention on music streaming sites back in 2017 with her project VERSE(atility).
Her mother wrote an emotional tribute to Brax on Instagram which included a touching memorial video of her daughter from throughout the years.
Captioning the clip, she wrote: “Our angel, Braxton Blue.B Baker has ascended.
“At the time of her ascendance she laid in sacred form. There were no scratches there were no bruises, her internal and external being was completely pure.
“It was a spiritual release. God retrieved the angel He loaned us.
“Braxton was in spiritual retreat, carefully crafting and curating her art. She has since dedicated her art to humanity and healing, composing two albums and three novels.”
She continued: “Most recently she was in the process of forming her brand merging her loves for fashion, and the work of Black queer revolutionary women.
“Braxton knew that God was working through her, she had ‘vessel’ and ‘gifted’ permanently placed on her body.
“She knew that her brilliance and art would be shared with the world in God’s timing."
Braxton’s grieving mother concluded by saying she plans to dedicate her “whole being” to sharing her daughter’s work with everyone.
Talking about her carer in a 2018 interview with SVGE Magazine, Richmond, Virginia-born star Braxton said: "I have been using my creativity to build a unique brand for years.
“I’ve been directing my own shoots, directing my own videos, styling myself, writing poetry, writing articles, writing raps, choreographing dances, styling myself, and styling others like it was nothing for years.
“Now that I’ve embraced that power, I don’t think the world is ready.”
