The oldest son of Christian rapper TobyMac died suddenly on Wednesday, a representative for the family has confirmed.

Truett Foster McKeehan, 21, was an aspiring rapper who released songs and videos online as Truett Foster, truDog, TRU, and Shiloh. He was TobyMac’s oldest child.

“Truett did pass away at home in the Nashville area sometime Tuesday night or Wednesday morning,” the representative confirmed to USA Today. The cause of death has not yet been determined.

TobyMac offered a moving tribute on Facebook to his deceased son:

TobyMac broke away from a tour in Canada to be with his family in Tennessee. His performances on Thursday in Edmonton and Friday in Calgary have been postponed.

The Christian rapper has collaborated with his son on songs in the past. He also wrote a song called “Scars” that reflected on changes with his son after he left home.
