Rapper Emani 22 has died at 22 after a “tragic accident.” She is best known for her songs “Feelings” and “Close.”

Her manager provided a statement confirming the news.

“It is with heavy hearts that the family of Emani has confided her passing,” the statement wrote. “They would like to share that although she fought courageously and the medical team went above and beyond doing everything in their power to aid her recovery, on Monday, October 11th, Emani succumbed to her injuries she sustained after a tragic accident. At this time, Emani’s family is asking for privacy to mourn and honor her life and memories.”

Record producer J Maine also confirmed the death.

“I worked on music with her and helped her put together her last project which was The Color Red. The way we worked together was effortless, we just understood each other,” he said in his statement. “It hurts so bad to know that the last time I saw her was the last time I’d ever see her again.”

Rapper Bhad Bhabie was the first to break the news and paid tribute to her friend on social media.

She first posted Emani on Instagram with a photo of them together. The caption was, “I don’t even know what to say… This doesn’t even feel real. I used to spend almost every day with you. You taught me so many things. You are my inspiration. I’m gonna miss you so much.”

In a separate post, Bregoli shared a photo of Emani holding Bregoli’s dog.

“Chuppas favorite auntie” was her caption.

Emani’s father, Daryl Johnson, went on Twitter to share a tribute. He tweeted a photo of his daughter when she was younger and wrote, “Thank you my baby for your light. You are forever in our hearts. Daddy loves you so much. Rest in power my girl-baby. Love you forever #Emani22.”
