Atlanta-based SoundCloud rapper 6 Dogs has died. He was only 21.

No confirmed details surrounding the rapper, whose real name is Chase Amick, has yet been revealed. The Daily Mail reported that Amick had tested positive for the novel coronavirus last summer, which he revealed earlier on social media.

Amick rose to fame in 2016 after he began uploading songs onto the music streaming platform SoundCloud and later went viral with tracks like “Flossing” and “Saturn.” In 2017, he released his biggest hit to date, “Faygo Dreams,” which has garnered over 105 million streams on Spotify alone. He also went on to collaborate with several artists including Lik Skies and Yung Bans.

In those years, Amick released three projects overall: his 2017 eponymous debut project, 2018’s 6 Wolves and 2019’s Hi-Hats & Heartaches. His last release arrived in May 2020, a collaboration with Yung Pinch called “Flex 4 No Reason.”

Producer Benny Blanco was one of the many who paid tribute to the late rapper on social media following news of his death. In a tweet, Blanco described Amick as “one of the kindest, toe painting, star gazing, art making, day dreaming, thoughtful, warmest souls i had ever met.” “The way u made us laugh and the ridiculous stories u would tell,” he added.
