Atlanta rapper 6 Dogs reportedly died by suicide on Tuesday (January 26) at just 21 years old. 6 Dogs — born Chase Amick — rose to prominence through building a strong underground following on SoundCloud with infectious tracks such as “Faygo Dreams” and “Flossing.”

6 Dogs worked with a neophyte Cole Bennett in 2018 who directed his “Buttcheeks” video. Bennett paid tribute to the rapper after news of his death broke.

“Rest in Peace to a beautiful human,” he wrote to social media.

An outpouring of support from collaborators and friends of 6 Dogs poured in across Hip Hop from artists such as $NOT, Nessly, Lil Aaron and Yung Gravy.

“RIP Chase :โ€™( inspired me in so many ways and helped me grow as an artist and a person,” Gravy penned in mourning.

For those unfamiliar, 6 Dogs artistry drove in the emo-rap lane while leaving his imperfections on display for those to relate to in the mold similar to that of Juice WRLD. 6 Dogs grew up in the Atlanta suburbs in a strict and religious household. He detailed his Christian upbringing in a 2017 interview with The Masked Gorilla.

โ€œI just started late,” he explained. “My parents started me late. My super Christian parents, and all their friends, are super religious and stuff, and I love my childhood but we had this homeschooling group or whatever. I loved them, it was so fun we would just do stuff in the woods, make forts, like legos and stuff like that. I love my childhood, I’m glad I wasn’t just watching TV and stuff like that. I was reading books and doing stuff which contributed to my creativity.โ€

He’s worked with the likes of Lil Skies, Yung Pinch, Yung Bans and more. His last album, Hi-Hats & Heartaches, arrived in 2019. 6 Dogs was working on a new album in July 2020 when he was diagnosed with COVID-19, which forced him to delay the project.

“Just took a covid test and my results came back positive:/ Iโ€™m str8 just a pretty bad headache,” he said. “Iโ€™m a healthy dood tho so I should b fine. Unfortunately this will put a delay on the album thx for rockin w me yโ€™all.”
