The Brit Award-nominated Ramz is “getting the support he needs” in the aftermath of distressing messages posted on the rapper’s Instagram page.

The British star, best known for his 2018 single “Barking”, caused concern after posting a photograph of a hanging body to his Instagram along with the caption “SUICIDE”.

Today Ramz’s Instagram account was taken over by his mother and management, who posted the message, “Thank you guys for all your messages. Ramz is in the right hands getting the support he needs”.

A number of rappers have taken to Ramz’s social media to post messages of support. Dappy posted a heart emoji after learning that the star was safe, while Wiley added: “Thank you”.

In a tweet, Lisa Maffia said to the star, “If this is a message for help, then my hand is open so let me hold yours. Everything and anything can be changed. No problem lasts forever. We need you here!” before hashtagging “#BigSis”.

Ramz’s Instagram has been wiped of images in the wake of the worrying posts, while it appears that distressing tweets the rapper had made in the last 18 hours have similarly been erased.

The rapper, whose real name is Ramone Rochester, most recently released the EP Blockbuster in May.
