Brax, a social media influencer and rapper, has died at the age of 21.
Born Braxton Baker, she was working on two albums and three novels at the time of her death, according to an Instagram post from her mother, Letricia Loftin, on Thursday. The specifics of Brax’s death are still unclear.
“At the time of her ascendance she laid in sacred form,” Loftin’s post reads. “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.”
Brax had also been pursuing a singing career and choreography, among various other talents. Her mother’s post also indicates that fashion projects were in the works, specifically ones that involved “Black queer revolutionary womxn.”

The body of work included “Lil b—-,” a song that is still up on Brax’s YouTube channel
