Rapper Fredo Santana passes away at age 27

This past Friday, Chicago rapper Fredo Santana was found dead in his house in Los Angeles. Sources say that he was found unconscious on the floor by his girlfriend in his home. By the time medical staff arrived, he had already passed away. His cause of death was said to be a fatal seizure.



The rapper has had a history or addiction to prescription cough syrup, also known as "lean", and was recently treated for kidney and liver complications (TMZ). Fredo is best known for being one of the pioneers of "drill" music and being the cousin of popular Chicago rapper, Chief Keef.

Saddens my heart to see another hip-hop artist dead. Hopefully this will deter others others from dabbling with prescription drugs. What do you guys think?
