Jayare, a member of Inglewood, Calif., rap group Cali Swag District, died on Friday at 25 years old.

On Friday, Cali Swag member Corey "Smoove Da General" Fowler tweeted about his fallen friend and musical collaborator. “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,” he wrote.
Cali Swag District exploded on the music scene in 2010 with their first single, "Teach Me How to Dougie," which not only peaked at No. 6 on Billboard's rap singles chart, but also spawned the biggest dance phenomenon since Soulja Boy's "Crank Dat" back in 2007.
Childs is not the first member of Cali Swag District to die in recent years. The group’s M-Bone (real name: Montae Talbert) was killed in a drive-by shooting in 2011.
Earlier this year, Cali Swag District released a mixtape, titled “The District,” featuring Ty Dolla $ign, Problem, Nipsey Hussle, Waka Flocka, Skeme and others.
