Fredo Santana Joins the 27 Club


This week Chicago rapper Fredo Santana died at age 27...

...joining a long list of rock stars who didn't make it past that age.

The list includes blues singer Robert Johnson, rock guitarist Jimi Hendrix, artist Jean-Michel Basquiat, rappers Freaky Tah, Stretch and Fat Pat, jazz singer Amy Winehouse, grunge rocker Kurt Cobain and singers Janis Joplin and Jim Morrison.

Fredo, who died from kidney failure, had been very open about his abuse of the popular prescription drug concoction known as 'lean' and had recently vowed to kick the habit after his organs began shutting down.

Official cause of death?

Sounds like the cause of death may have been overdose or complications from drug abuse, but I'm no coroner. I don't know who this is, but a music legend died yesterday.

No great loss to our race, he was a junkie who was addicted to lean, this pathetic culture of rappers who market to the younger generation the debauchery of promiscuous deviant sex, drugs, crime, misogyny and all manner of wickedness I don't feel no way when they die off, natural selection and they walk around looking like unkempt druggie trolls living under a bridge. Good riddance, the whole lot of them need to die off quickly.

He was 60 days clean when he died.

Allegedly cause of death was liver failure from an overdose of leen. Funny thing is he was just in the hospital for the same thing in October. And he just had a new baby. His Instagram page is littered with grief. His career was just starting to take off. Another life lost trying to keep up with this fake hip hop celebrity illusion.

So, basically, he killed himself. Okay...

4:35p I hate people like you. Why don't you die. Think about a vice in your life because we all have at least one. If its eating too much, smoking, drinking all of which can kill you but are so very hard to kick the addiction to. What if you struggle and really want to be free but it overtakes you then you die and some idiot like you says all people with addictions deserve to die. Its sad when a human life is defeated by addiction. Get a heart stupid.
