Even though Youngan was still actually fighting for his life, internet death rumors were quickly spread on social media.

The rapper's sister Kenya Janell brought attention to these claims, which were spread by a number of “trusted” sources, and put an end to them with the following tweet:

However, as the hours passed, her tweets became more worrying when she tweeted:

“I literally can't believe this. I'm so in distraught oh my f**** god.”

“I can't believe I'm even typing this, literally my brother … my brother … my eyes are so puffed out. I can't stop crying .. why did you leave me like this babe.”

Carena, Youngan's girlfriend has spoken out on her Instagram page following the tragedy, she wrote:
