The hip hop community is reacting to Fredo Santana’s untimely death and the tributes are pouring in.
The Chicago rapper died on Friday of a reported seizure. Sources say he passed away from kidney and liver failure, while other reports suggested it was a seizure that ultimately claimed his life. His death once again sparked an outcry for musicians to stop taking drugs and rappers to stop drinking lean. Santana’s close friend and frequent collaborator, Maxo Kream, was the first person to break the news to fans. We’re told that he is taking the death very hard.
“Damn man I’m lost for words right now I’m cryin my a*s off Fredo I love yu B**ch RIP a real Savage,” he wrote. Other rappers like Drake, Lil B, Lil Pump, Joey Badass, Travis Scott, ASAP Twelvy, and Fredo Santana’s cousin and fellow Chicago rapper Chief Keef all paid tribute to the late MC.

1st time I met Fredo around 2011 I bought 1 of his shirts from him outside rsvp his friend who was with him said “that’s Kanye Dj fuck with him bro” didn’t ask 4 a discount or nothin. Later on we did a song called #Cornasto for the #treatedtribe album and @jonjamestr3atdu Debut album #Juanito my fam @toddbeee Got him 2 record the verse and the rest was history. Man say what u want but I knew @fredosantanassr and he was all around a stand up dude who rode for his family and did what he had 2 despite the decisions he’s made in his life. I considered him a comrade. Long live Big Boss Fredo! ???
