JayAre, one of the members of rap group Cali Swag District, passed away late last week from complications with sickle cell anemia, says another member from the group.

The rapper was hospitalized Thursday night and went into cardiac arrest.  Within hours, the rapper passed.

Fellow Cali Swag District rapper General Da Smoove posted the news to his Twitter account.

Cali Swag District was most known for their hit “Teach Me How to Dougie,” which hit No. 6 on the U.S. rap charts.

JayAre is not the first member of the group to pass away, in 2011 M-Bone was murdered in a drive-by shooting.
