Cali Swag District is mourning the loss of another one of its members, JayAre, who passed away on Friday at the age of 25.

According to MTV News, JayAre (born Cheron Childs), one-fourth of the Inglewood, Calif. group, suffered from sickle cell anemia and was admitted to the hospital on Thursday night. While in the hospital, he went into cardiac arrest and died.

His fellow CSD member Smoove Da General shared the sad news. “Sickle cell took my brother away from me today…with that being said I’m proud to know that with that disease he made the best of his life,” he tweeted. “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.”

Yung also reflected on the loss of his friend and groupmate. “We started off with 4 now all thats left is 2,” he wrote. “I made a promise to my self , that i would get us thru… And Just when i felt like we was winning… We would always loose smh! Im not a quitter, but i want to quit… Feeling like life gave up on me … So imma just give up on it…. But i know u would want me to be strong… So turn up for me when u see BONE, and save a spot for YUNG the day i come HOME!!! :BIG 3rd!!! #mybrother Imma miss you!!!! Rest well.”

JayAre is not the first member of Cali Swag District to lose his life at a young age. In May 2011, Montae “M-Bone” Talbert was killed in a drive-by shooting.

JayAre’s peers took to Twitter to send their condolences. “RIP @Jayare_CSD 4rm #CALISWAGDISTRICT,” tweeted YG.

The group is best known for 2010′s platinum hit “Teach Me How to Dougie” off its debut album The Kickback. Earlier this year, they released the mixtape The District featuring Nipsey Hussle, Ty Dolla $ign, and Waka Flocka Flame.

    Damn R.I.P., my heart goes out to those boys man. They lost half of their group man, to lose 2 people that close to you within a 3-year timespan is too horrible to think about.

    He was only 25. Im the same age as him. To go from 4 people to just 2 I couldnt imagine what they’re going thru. I’m so sorry to hear this.
