Brax, a rapper and influencer with a large social media following, has passed away at age 21.

Thursday on Instagram, the musician’s mother, Letricia Loftin Russell, announced the death of her daughter, born Braxton Baker. Brax’s cause of death has yet to be revealed.

While posting a video montage, Russell wrote, “Our Angel Has Ascended. Our angel, Braxton Blue.B Baker has ascended.”

Russell adds that “at the time of her ascendance she laid in sacred form.”

“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.”

In addition “to composing two albums and three novels,” Russell says her daughter “was in the process of forming her brand merging her loves for fashion, and the work of Black queer revolutionary womxn.”

“Braxton knew that God was working through her, she had ‘vessel’ and ‘gifted’ permanently placed on her body. She knew that her brilliance and art would be shared with the world in God’s timing,” Russell continued.

“This is just the beginning, our whole beings are dedicated to sharing her sacred art with the world.”

Our angel, Braxton Blue.B Baker has ascended. At the time of her ascendance she laid in sacred form. 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. Braxton was in spiritual retreat, carefully crafting and curating her art. She has since dedicated her art to humanity and healing, composing two albums and three novels. Most recently she was in the process of forming her brand merging her loves for fashion, and the work of Black queer revolutionary womxn. Braxton knew that God was working through her, she had “vessel” and “gifted” permanently placed on her body. She knew that her brilliance and art would be shared with the world in God’s timing. This is just the beginning, our whole beings are dedicated to sharing her sacred art with the world. Braxton emphasized, “I’m just delivering God’s message, I’m here and it’s all beyond me. My purpose is way way far greater than me.” ***We do not own the rights to this music*** but the art that is coming is a gift to the world.

Brax first gained recognition after the release of her debut mixtape, “VERSE(atility).”

In 2018, she released the music video for her song, “Lil -----,” which can currently be streamed on YouTube.

That same year, the MC gave an interview to Svage, where she opened up about her artistry.

“My role is to create art straight from my heart. For I know that art will be pure, poetic, powerful and healing. All I want to do is help the world heal. That’s when things will begin to shift,” she told the outlet.

“I have been using my creativity to build a unique brand for years. I’ve been directing my own shoots, directing my own videos, styling myself, writing poetry, writing articles, writing raps, choreographing dances, styling myself and styling others like it was nothing for years,” she added. “So, I guess that’s how I’ve been making it work for me.”

Our condolences go out to Brax’s family and loved ones for their loss.
