JayDaYoungan’s funeral was held at Bogalusa High school on Sunday (August 7). According to WDSU, hundreds of people came out for the solemn affair, with many of his friends and family dressed in white and blue. Prior to the service, Bogalusa mayor Wendy O’Quin-Perrette assured attendees they’d be safe from violence as she spoke on his death.

“The pain that has been caused by the loss of Javorius Scott aka JayDaYoungan and the injury of Kenyatta Scott Sr is indescribable to the Family and Friends of these victims, and to our community as well,” she wrote in part. “As a Mother, I cannot imagine loss and suffering of this kind. A child should outlive his parents. A proper celebration for the life of someone so young must be possible without fear.

“I assure each of you that measures are being taken to provide security and safety in our city. On this Sunday especially, every precaution will be taken to protect the citizens of Bogalusa. I consider the safety of our citizens as my singular focus.”

JayDaYoungan was sitting in the front yard of his Bogalusa home on July 27 when a black truck pulled up. Three people jumped out firing their weapons as JayDaYoungan and his father, Kenyatta Scott, attempted to run inside.

But two more people emerged from the side of the house and started shooting. Scott fired back in an effort to defend himself and his son, but it was too late. Scott was struck twice in the arm, while the 24-year-old rapper was hit at least eight times. JayDaYoungan was rushed to Our Lady of the Angels Hospital in critical condition where he ultimately died as a result of his injuries.

A post of the funeral showed up on FG Famous’ Instagram account shortly after the service that showed JayDaYoungan’s casket being carried by several pallbearers. The caption read: “What A Bond To Be Broken @jaydayoungan. My First Stop Will Be To See You #FreeFG #LL23.”
