Big Scarr, a 22-year-old rapper from Tennessee who was signed to Gucci Mane’s label 1017 Records, has died of unspecified circumstances. In an Instagram post on Thursday, Mane revealed the wordsmith’s loss.
“This hurts and I’m going to miss you, @bigscarr,” the “Poppin” singer posted with a photo gallery of the deceased lyricist.
HipHopDx said that Big Scarr’s cause and timing of death had not yet been disclosed. A native of Memphis was nearly killed in 2020 when he was shot in the hip and the bullet traveled up his spine. According to Revolt, this caused severe internal problems that prompted doctors to remove his appendix and reposition his right leg.
Scarr, who was born Alexander Woods in Memphis, Tennessee on April 7, 2000, derives his moniker from the injuries he sustained at age 16 in a vehicle accident. The Sun stated that the Tennessee resident was flung through the glass of a friend’s car during an accident, leaving him with several wounds.
Woods made his debut in hip hop in 2020 after signing with Gucci Mane’s company 1017 Records. His debut commercial release was the compilation album “Gucci Mane Presents: So Icy Summer” by The New 1017, on which he performed “SoIcyBoyz” with labelmates Pooh Shiesty and Foogiano. Additionally, he had the solo song “Make A Play.”
Woods released “Big Grim Reaper,” his first and only official mixtape, in 2021, XXL reported, following his appearance on the 1017 collection “So Icy Gang, Vol. 1.” The album features famous songs like as “SolcyBoyz 2” and “Poppin,” as well as guest performances by Gucci Mane, Scarr’s cousin Pooh Shiesty, Foogiano, and producer Tay Keith. “BGR” received critical acclaim, debuting at No. 25 on Billboard’s Hot 200 album list and No. 1 on Rolling Stone’s Breakthrough 25 chart.
The death of Tiger Woods sent shock waves through the hip hop scene. This s–t is wicked, wtf bro!! According to a tweet by rapper Key Glock, Woods was scheduled to appear on his upcoming Glockoma Tour 2023.
On August 12, 2020 in Atlanta, Georgia, Big Scarr, Enchanting, Foogiano, Pooh Shiesty, and Gucci Mane attend a party organized by Gucci Mane and 1017 at Republic Lounge.
Enchanting, a labelmate of Scarr’s at 1017, lamented the rapper’s passing on his Instagram Story, adding, “Ion want to talk. I’m sorry if I don’t respond. “I simply cannot,” she wrote.
She also posted a picture of the deceased artist with the comment, “My babbbyyy my best buddy my son I love you forever and I’m very sad.”
