Ramz is said to be getting support after posting the word "suicide" on social media this morning.

The rapper, real name Ramone Rochester, shared a picture associated with the word on Twitter and Instagram.

Now both posts have been deleted and replaced with a message that reads "Ramz is in the right hands getting the support he needs".

There have been several messages of support for the 22-year-old, including from grime artists Ghetts and Dappy.

Ramz originally broke through in 2017 with the track Barking and follow-up Family Tree.

It's not known what prompted the messages to be posted on social media - but fans have been speculating that the rapper was subject to abuse and trolling online.
