Chicago Rapper Fredo Santana Reportedly Dead At 27

Chicago rapper Fredo Santana has reportedly died, according to several of his friends and collaborators. He was 27.

The tragic news was first shared early Saturday morning (January 20) by Santana’s good friend Maxo Kream. “I’m lost for words right now,” he wrote on Instagram. “RIP a real Savage.”

Santana, born Derrick Coleman, helped usher in Chicago’s drill music scene back in 2012, alongside his younger cousin Chief Keef. He also founded his own record label, Savage Squad, where he released his debut album, Trappin’ Ain’t Dead, in 2013. Over the past five years, he churned out nearly a dozen mixtapes and albums, the last being 2017′s Fredo Kruger 2.

Santana had his share of struggles as well, suffering health issues ranging from liver and kidney failure to seizures. In October, he posted on Instagram that he was hospitalized with liver failure, writing, “I wouldn’t wish this on my [worst] enemy.”

Santana is survived by one son who was born in 2017. A cause of death has yet to be confirmed.

Below, see tributes from Drake, Travis Scott, Action Bronson, and more of Santana’s friends, peers, and collaborators.

First debuted back in 1987, and then re-released in the very first Air Jordan retro collection in 1994, the Air Jordan 2 Low is on the comeback trail this spring. On hiatus for the past 11 years as it was last seen in 2005, the OG Air Jordan 2 Low “Chicago” is slated to return this May.

Scheduled for a Jordan Release Date of May 21, this drop comes roughly a month before the start of summer, which is perfect. We also hope the construction and accompanying details are perfect, too, as the shoe comes in the midst of the retro remaster initiative.

The adidas Originals Yeezy Boost May Be Coming to Chicago & Los Angeles

Kanye West’s adidas kicks may be making their way to a couple more cities. adidas’ long dormant Confirmed app was recently updated — for the first time since its prominence in this February’s Big Apple-exclusive launch of the Yeezy Boost — with the tagline “adidas Confirmed Has Taken Flight. Stay tuned for more information on where adidas Confirmed will be heading to next.” Given the app’s previous use, the portrayed flight patterns, and the rumors of an imminent release for the low-top Yeezy Boost, West’s signature kicks could very well be set for a debut in both his original and adoptive home cities. Stay tuned for more info in the days and weeks ahead.
