AceShowbiz - Christian rapper tobyMac has remembered his 21-year-old son in a touching tribute online following his sudden death.
The Grammy-winning singer, real name Kevin Michael McKeehan, cut short his tour of Canada to return home to Tennessee earlier this week (begins October 21) after Truett Foster McKeehan unexpectedly passed away.
A cause of death has yet to be determined, but as the star and his family come to terms with the tragedy, tobyMac has released an emotional statement online to pay tribute to his kid.
"Truett Foster Mckeehan had joy that took the room when he entered. He was a magnetic son and brother and friend," the musician wrote.
"If you met him, you knew him, you remembered him. His smile, his laugh, the encouragement he offered with words or even without. He had an untamable grand personality and dreams to match. And he hated being put in a box."
Truett had followed in his father's musical footsteps as an aspiring hip-hop artist, releasing songs under the stage names Truett Foster, truDog, TRU and Shiloh in recent years.
