The budding teen rapper Juan Bautista Garcia, also known as YNT Juan passes away at the age of 17, on Sunday evening, August 8, 2021, after being shot down in his car.

Juan, who enjoyed a great fandom of about 25,000 followers on Instagram and approximately 4,000 subscribers on YouTube, became the 25th target of homicide in Hartford, Connecticut that police are currently investigating.

In conversation with ‘Hartford Courant’ the late rapper’s close friend Janine revealed, “He was only 17-years-old. He never went live on his Instagram to talk about drama, he only went on there to support his friends or promote his music, didn’t even get to graduate school yet,” about Juan, who is known for his remix to Kanye West’s popular song ‘Power’.

A week before his death, on August 3, Juan had taken to Instagram and YouTube to promote his then upcoming song remix.

Besides ‘Power Remix’, the rapper had also released several other singles including, ‘Snakes’, ‘Detroit’, ‘Watch How I Flex’ and ‘Deady’ among a few others.

Unfortunately, Juan has been the lastest rapper victim who lost his life in a tragic car gunfire following many popular artists including, Mo3, Hot Boy Ju, King Von and others in recent months.

According to the ‘Hartford Courant’, police forces were quickly designated to the incident location 258 Martin St. as soon as the news announcing Juan’s murder broke.
