BALTIMORE, Feb. 24 (UPI) -- Baltimore rapper Smash was found dead in his home due to congestive heart failure, his family said. A vigil for the rapper is scheduled for Wednesday.

Terrel Dishon Taylor, aka Smash, died at about 5:45 p.m. Friday in his Baltimore home, The Baltimore Sun reported. He was 31 years old.

Taylor's aunt, Arlette Thomas-Fletcher, said he had a genetic heart condition. She did not know the medical term for it.

Taylor, who put out singles including "A Bit Too Much For Me," featuring Yung C, and "Choppa on My Lap," was a staple of the Baltimore rap scene. He also worked with artists outside of the city, including a song with Duct Tape Entertainment's Alley Boy of Atlanta.

Funeral services have not yet been arranged, but his family said a vigil will be held in remembrance of Taylor Wednesday at City of Gods from 6-10 p.m.
