It's with great sadness that we report the death of Scarfo Da Plug. The rising New Orleans MC became a staple in the buzzing underground trap scene in the South over the years. Projects like 2020's Trap Jesus and 2019's TRAP-NOLA helped put a massive spotlight on his talent which earned him critical praise and collaborations with artists like Drugrixh Peso, iLuvMuny and more.

"N**ga call me everyday and scream PLUGGGGGG on the phone and now my n***a gone.. i talk to shawty hours before he passed I’m still not even believing this all the way we talk about what we want for our kids all the time and this happen.. all brah wanted to do was get rich and rap..
