False information about his death began to circulate on Monday June 10. After his death was confirmed on Tuesday, tributes began pouring in on social media.

Before his death, Enchanting signed to his label 1017 Records in 2020, according to New York radio station Hot 97. “She appeared on 3 compilation albums before leaving the label in 2023,” they added.

The rising star reportedly died after being taken off life support at a hospital.

In a statement to The Shade Room, a representative from her management team said the 26-year-old was suffering from withdrawal and had overdosed.

“She came to my house for the last four days to clean herself. She did her best and I did everything I could to help her, she tried,” the spokesperson told the outlet.

According to his 1017 Records profile, still active on the label’s website, Enchanting “started making music around age 18” and began focusing on his craft after graduating from high school .

The rapper opened up about having to find her style after thinking she looked like “a little baby” earlier in her career.

“I had to get comfortable with my voice,” she told the 1017 website. “Staying in the studio and recording constantly, it helps me find the style I can be good at.”

Expanding further on her style, she said: “It’s like Trap-n-Blues.”

“Other people can relate to what I’m saying. I can help anyone in any situation, they can listen to me and find peace,” the rapper continued.

In a 2021 interview, she explained that she was an “army kid” born in Germany and called Forth Worth, Texas her home after also living in Atlanta until fifth grade.
