BREAKING: Major Star Found DEAD In His Home At 27-Yrs-Old

Tragedy has struck Hollywood once again. Fredo Santana, 27, was found dead on his floor by his girlfriend on Friday night. Just a few months ago Fredo had to go to the hospital where he was treated for kidney and liver failure. During that time Fredo also opened up about something that he has been struggling with and even contemplated seeking treatment for it. The full cause of Santana’s seizure that lead to his death is still under investigation but authorities and his family have a good idea of what was the cause.

Rolling Stone reports, Fredo Santana, Chicago drill rapper, and cousin of Chief Keef, has died at the age of 27.

While no cause of death was officially revealed, TMZ reports that the rapper born Derrick Coleman suffered a fatal seizure Friday night in Los Angeles.

Houston rapper Maxo Kream was among the first to post about Santana’s death on social media, “Damn man I’m lost for words right now I’m cryin my ass off Fredo I love yu Bitch RIP a real Savage.” Drake also posted a photo of him and Santana with the caption “Rest In Peace Santana”; Santana had a cameo in Drake’s video for the hit “Hold On, We’re Coming Home.”

On October 12th, Santana posted a video on Instagram of the rapper in the hospital, where he was being treated for “kidney failure [and] liver failure.” Two days later, Santana said that he was “out of the hospital” and “on my way to the studio.”

The rapper later told fans that his health issues were likely the result of continued lean usage and that he was considering rehab to deal with the addiction. TMZ notes that seizures are a side effect of prolonged lean consumption.

Santana’s debut mixtape It’s a Scary Site arrived in 2012 with appearances by fellow Chicago rappers King L, Lil Durk, Lil Reese and Chief Keef. Santana’s lone studio album, 2013’s Trappin Ain’t Dead, featured Kendrick Lamar on the track “Jealous.” In 2017, Santana released a pair of mixtapes, Plugged In and Fredo Kruger 2

Addiction is a really big problem and Santana knew that he had a problem, unfortunately, his addiction was likely the cause of his untimely death. Santana was open about his struggles and addiction to lean, aka Purple Drank, which is a concoction of prescription cough syrup, soft drink, and hard flavored candies. The prescription cough syrup is the biggest problem with this drink because of the codeine that is in it.

Santana leaves behind an 8-month old son. It is unfortunate that his son won’t remember his father or have a relationship with him but he will be able to listen to his music that he worked so hard on. RIP Fredo.
