The Chicago rapper reportedly suffered a fatal seizure Friday night.
Chicago rapper Fredo Santana has died at the age of 27. Fredo, real name Derrick Coleman, reportedly suffered a seizure and was found dead on the floor of his L.A. home by his girlfriend Friday night, according to TMZ.
Fredo first broke through in 2012 alongside Chicago peers Chief Keef, Lil Reese, and Lil Durk, the first wave of rappers to define Drill, a confrontational and highly influential form of street rap. He released a number of projects including It's A Scary Site, Fredo Kruger, Trappin' Ain't Dead and Walking Legend. Last year, he released Fredo Kruger 2, and was in the process of recording a new tape Walking Legend 2 and a joint tape with his cousin Chief Keef called Turbo Bandana. He was famously referenced in Keef's hit "I Don't Like" by Lil Reese: "Fredo in the cut, that's a scary sight."
