Lexii's cousin, Raeish Clark, confirmed her passing in an emotional Facebook post yesterday afternoon.
Raeish wrote, "I'm so lost for words... my beautiful cousin with so much talent & unique soul Lexii Alijai. It's too soon."
Singer Kehlani worked with Lexii in 2015 on a hit song titled Jealous. Kehlani is torn apart by the young rapper's death.
