Channing Nicole Larry (October 9, 1997 – June 11, 2024), known professionally as Enchanting, was an American rapper from Fort Worth, Texas.[2] She was signed to Gucci Mane's record label, 1017 Records,[3] and gained initial recognition for her 2022 single, "Track & Field", featuring fellow rapper Kaliii, which gained over six million YouTube views as of the time of her death. She frequently collaborated with Gucci Mane, alongside Big Scarr, Coi Leray, Foogiano, and Kaliii.[4]

Early life

[edit]

Channing Nicole Larry was born in Hanau, Germany to American parents, and spent her early years in Fort Worth, Texas, and Atlanta, Georgia.[5][6]

Career

[edit]

Larry began her music career in her late teens, performing in a church choir and being a cheerleader in high school. After graduation, she worked as a hairstylist and nail technician before pursuing a career in hip-hop and releasing music online.[7][8] On March 11, 2019, Enchanting was featured on Boogotti Kasino's single "Monday", which serves as her debut single.[9] The song earned her recognition, which led to her signing a recording deal with Gucci Mane's 1017 Records, in 2020,[10] and subsequently released several singles and projects, including "No Luv" (2020)[11] and Luv Scarred (2023).[12] On February 24, 2023, she released the single "Tell Me Why" featuring Layton Greene,[13] and was featured on Raedio's song "He Can't Reach" alongside Maiya the Don in October.[14][15]

Death

[edit]

On June 10, 2024, Larry was rushed to the intensive care unit and was reported to be in critical condition following a heart attack, possibly caused by a drug overdose. After false reports of her death circulated on social media, her sister, Kayy Jayy, clarified in a public post that her sister was alive, saying, "Please ignore the false reports. My sister is fine."[16] However, at 2:26 a.m. on June 11, Larry was pronounced dead at Baylor University Medical Center in Dallas, Texas,[17] after being removed from life support due to complications from an alleged overdose. She was 26.[18] Her management team confirmed her death, and soon after tributes poured in from fellow artists and fans.[19][20]
