Kream broke the news with an Instagram post that read, “Damn man I’m lost for words right now I’m cryin my ass off Fredo I love yu Bitch RIP a real Savage.”
Tributes started to pour in on social media as news of his death spread, including one from Drake who captioned an Instagram photo, “Rest in Peace Santana” alongside a photo of the two together. Fredo appeared in the 6 God’s video for “Hold On, We’re Going Home” back in 2013.
Fredo suffered from a range of health problems stemming from his alleged substance abuse issues. Last October, he was rushed to the hospital after suffering a seizure due to acute kidney and liver failure, and momentarily considered rehab. He was open about his abuse of lean, which likely led to the seizure that put him in the hospital in March 2017.
While some people are speculating that he died of kidney failure, there’s no official cause of death yet.
Denzel Curry, A$AP Twelvyy, Travis Scott, Lil Durk and Lil B were among the many who took to social media to express their shock and sadness.
