Rapper Lexii Alijai urged her friends and fans to look after themselves in her final poignant social media post before her shock death.
The musician – real name Alexis Alijai Lynch – died on January 1 2020 at the age of 21.
Friends and family confirmed the tragic news, but Lexii’s cause of death is yet to be releashed by police and the local coroner’s office.
The rapper, who teamed up with American singer-songwriter Kehlani for her first mixtape You Should Be Here, had appeared to foresee her death in a haunting last Facebook message.
She had shared one of her old statuses through the Facebook Memories function, which read: “Stayin in the crib as usual on New Years… Iont do parties. I hope everyone has fun, be safe!”
The original message, written on January 1 2014, had been re-shared and Lexii had added a praying hands emoji to it.
Shocked fans couldn’t believe she had died just hours after the post, with one writing underneath: “Is this fr??? I hope you’re okay.”
Another said: “I’m so broke my girl! I’m in shoCk this can’t be real please tell me this ain’t true! I love u my girl!”
And a third wrote: “Rip lexii my heart hurting fr for you boo! Hopefully your in peace now with the angels.”
Kehlani, who had featured Lexii’s vocals on her track Jealous, was among the first to pay tribute.
The star, who has 1.3 million followers, wrote on Twitter : “Jus got the worst f****n news ever. my heart is BROKE. F**K.
