Woods went on to tell the publication that he had no idea where his nephew got the pills and that he had experienced several traumatic situations in his young life.

It turns out the Soul Keeper MC, just 22 years old, had been battling depression who seemed upset by the death of his beloved grandmother.

Additionally, his uncle said he nearly died after being shot in 2020 when the bullet traveled up his spine, prompting surgery to remove his appendix.

Additionally, the rapper suffered serious injuries related to a nasty car accident when he was thrown through a windshield. The scar left on his body was the inspiration for his stage name, Big Scarr.

Big Scarr was born on April 7, 2000 and raised in Magnolia Parish in South Memphis.

He started his rap career in 2019 by releasing the song Make A Play which quickly gained popularity on YouTube.

Sensing that he was an aspiring rapper, Gucci Mane eventually signed Scarr to his record label in 2020.

The following year, Scarr dropped his mixtape Grim Reaper, which peaked at number 25 on the Billboard 200 and sold 22,000 copies in the first week of April 2021. The mixtape featured performances by rappers Gucci Mane, Pooh Shiesty, Foogiano, Tay Keith, Enchanting and Baby K.

Earlier this year he released a deluxe edition, Big Grim Reaper: The Return, which included appearances from Offset, Queez Ruthless and Gucci.

Scarr’s death comes after the murders of two other Memphis rappers, Young Dolph and Snootie Wild. Young Dolph was killed in Memphis in November 2021, while Snootie Wild was shot in Houston in February.

As law enforcement sources continue their investigation into Scarr’s death, a source confirmed to TMZ that there were no signs of foul play.
