“This hurt — I’m a miss you @bigscarr,” the “Poppin” singer wrote in the tribute, along with a photo gallery of the late lyricist.

As of yet, Big Scarr’s cause and time of death have yet to be revealed, HipHopDx reported.

In 2020, the Memphis native was shot in the hip, with the bullet traveling all the way up to his spine. According to Revolt, this caused serious internal injuries that necessitated the removal of his appendix as well as the realignment of his right leg.

Scarr was born Alexander Woods on April 7, 2000 in Memphis, Tennessee, and gets his name from injuries he sustained in a car accident when he was 16 years old. According to the Sun, the Tennessean was thrown through the windshield of a friend’s car after a collision, leaving him with several scars.

Woods made his hip-hop debut in 2020 after signing with Gucci Mane’s label 1017 Records. His first commercial release was “SoIcyBoyz” from the New 1017 compilation album “Gucci Mane Presents: So Icy Summer,” which he performed alongside labelmates Pooh Shiesty and Foogiano. He also had a solo track called “Make a Play.”
