Fetty Wap spoke about his daughter, Lauren Maxwell, on social media following her death, aged 4.

On an Instagram Live video, which was later posted on Twitter, Wap asked his followers to post butterflies in the comments as a tribute to Maxwell.

After kissing a photo of his daughter, the 30-year-old rapper said: "Y'all can do me a favour? Just post all butterflies. All butterflies. Shorty [Maxwell] loved butterflies. If you guys could do that, that means a lot."

In the video, you can see fans responding with the butterflies emoji.

Later that day, Wap posted a picture of his late four-year-old daughter and added the butterfly emoji to the caption. "Hey mini me (My Twin)," he wrote. "I love you to the moon and back forever and ever bestfriend."

The "Trap Queen" rapper had previously dedicated his most recent performance at the Rolling Loud festival in Miami, Florida to his daughter.

He wrote in a now-deleted Instagram Story post after his set: "Lolo daddy did that s--- for you last night baby girl." Wap included a butterfly emoji in this post alongside a dove and heart emoji.

The cause of Maxwell's passing is so far unknown.

On July 31st, Wap's ex-girlfriend, Turquoise Miami, revealed on Instagram that their daughter had passed away.

She shared a video of Maxwell smiling in the pool and captioned it: "This is my amazing, beautiful, funny, vibrant, loving, talented, smart, and hardheaded princess mermaid Aquarius. If you see this post scrolling by with her comment or just say to yourself 'i love you LAUREN' because they say that souls can feel your love #rip."

Maxwell was Wap's only daughter with Miami but the "Trap Queen" rapper has five other children: Aydin, Zaviera, Khari, Amani, and Zy.

Wap posted about his kids on Instagram for Father's Day in June. He captioned one compilation photo of his children, "Pieces of my heart….. It's them over anything or anybody."
