The girlfriend of JayDaYoungan is mourning following the news of his tragic death. In a heartfelt post shared on Instagram Thursday, CaRena Vonchae expressed her grief and seemingly found some comfort in her final conversation with the 24-year-old rapper.

“Thank God my last words to you were I love you, I hope you know how much tho,” she wrote. “Im so hurt bae, how could you leave me like that I would’ve never left you …. EVER.” She reminisced on their bond and ability to “make each other smile” while remembering his “kind hearted sweet soul.”

JayDaYoungan, born Javorius Scott, was shot and killed Wednesday in his hometown of Bogalusa, Louisiana. Close family member Kenyatta Scott Sr., who was also on the scene, is in stable condition, according to police.

The rapper’s death comes nearly a month after he and CaRena suffered the loss of their child, Amazi Breeze Scott. The baby was born on June 10 and died days later on June 19.

“first mazi now you ion know how I can keep going…,” CaRena grieved. “im sooooo hurt… my best friend, my headache, my husband, my everything, my baby, you didn’t deserve this… i still can’t believe it.”

JayDaYoungan is best known for his songs “23 Island,” “Elimination” and “Opps.” His most recent EP, All Is Well, came out in March.
