Rapper Fredo Santana Found Dead At 27—And Twitter Is Paying Their Respects

By Robert Acosta

News broke early Saturday morning that Chicago born rapper, Fredo Santana, was found dead in his Los Angeles home on Friday. 

Santana, whose real name is Derrick Coleman, was most well known for his authentic style and songs that revolved around his life's experiences. Santana debuted in 2013 to popular reception, the year of his only album release, "Trappin' Ain't  Dead." He's since appeared on and released multiple mixtapes since that time.

Santana's health became a constant concern of late, when in October of 2017 a friend found him in the midst of a seizure. After visiting the doctor, the incident was attributed to kidney and liver failure. Santana frequently spoke of drug and alcohol abuse at a young age in his songs, writing in one, "2006 when I first started popping pills."
