“So sad to have to say R.I.P to such a great young lady a true star we gone all miss you Chant,” Gucci wrote on Instagram Tuesday. His wife, Keyshia Ka’Oir, also paid tribute, while defending Gucci following posts that claimed he was responsible for Enchanting’s death and the downfall of others who were signed to his label.

Enchanting then appeared on the soundtrack for Issa Rae‘s Max series RAP SH!T, featuring on “He Can’t Reach” with Maiya the Don, “Want No Beef” with Omeretta the Great and “Run It Up” with Kaliii
