TENNESSEAN — Christian rapper TobyMac’s oldest child has died suddenly, a representative confirmed, but few details about the death were released immediately.

“Truett did pass away at home in the Nashville area sometime Tuesday night or Wednesday morning,” the rep said in a statement issued Thursday morning to USA Today Network — Tennessee.
The Davidson County Medical Examiner’s office confirmed he died Wednesday.
“Cause of death has not been determined. Toby was traveling back from Canada and did not get home to be with his family until after midnight last night so there is no statement. We just ask that everyone please be respectful of their privacy during this time and allow them to grieve their loss.”
