Sad News: Chicago Rapper Fredo Santana Dead at 27!

Chicago rapper Fredo Santana died on Friday after suffering from a seizure.

He was found by his girlfriend on Friday night in his Los Angeles home, his family told TMZ.

Santana, whose real name is Derrick Coleman, had recently been hospitalized for liver and kidney problems due to drug addiction. The Chicago native leaves behind an eight-month-old son.

Fellow artists took to social media to offer their condolences on Saturday morning.

“Rest in Peace Santana," Drake wrote on Instagram with a picture of the two of them.

It appears his health issues were too much to overcome.

Fredo made his way into the mainstream spotlight along with his cousin Chief Keef in the early 2010s as part of the Chi’s Drill wave. He carved his own niche and has dropped popular mixtapes like Fredo Kruger, It’s a Scary Site and his Trappin Ain’t Dead album. He was working on the second installment in his Walking Legend mixtape series before he passed. “Walking Legend 2 is my favorite project an I only got 7 songs done so far 🔥🔥…… can’t wait to it’s finished an complete,” he recently tweeted.

Sadley, Chief Keef has now lost his cousin, Blood Money, GBE affiliate, Capo, friend T.Roy and now Fredo in the last four years.

Fredo is survived by his 8-month-old son, Legend.

RIP Fredo Santana.
