Rising rapper Enchanting dies at 26

The hip-hop community is mourning the loss of rising rapper Enchanting, formerly signed to Gucci Mane’s 1017 Records, per eonline.com. Her death was confirmed by close friend and collaborator Lil CJ Kasino on social media. She was 26 years old.

“They Pulled The Plug Bro This S–t So F–ked Up,” Kasino wrote in a heartfelt June 11 Instagram post. “I Just Knew You was Finna Pull Threw. You gone Forever.” Recalling their countless hours spent making music together, he added, “You Went Way Further Than Us I Always Told You How Proud I Was Of You.”

While the cause of death has not been disclosed, Enchanting—real name Channing Nicole Larry—had been placed on life support in the days leading up to her passing, as reported by multiple outlets.

Kasino’s post included a photo of Enchanting in a recording booth, capturing the essence of her passion for music. Raised primarily between Fort Worth, Texas, and Atlanta, she began her music career at 18 and pursued hip-hop full-time after high school. She signed with 1017 Records in 2020 and contributed to three compilation albums before releasing her own two albums, No Luv in 2022 and Luv Scarred / No Luv in 2023.

“Staying in the studio and constantly recording, it helps me find the style I can be good at,” she said in her artiste’s profile on the 1017 Records website. “It’s like Trap-n-Blues.” Enchanting’s music was more than a creative outlet; it was a way to connect with listeners, offering solace and understanding.

Tributes poured in from fellow artistes, including Lakeyah, Ericka Banks and Gucci Mane. “So sad to have to say R.I.P to such a great young lady,” Gucci wrote on Instagram. “A true star we gone all miss you Chant.”
