Close friend Maxo Kream was one of the first to share in the Hip Hop community. Fredo Santana, who is also Chief Keef’s cousin, suffered a number of heath issues which lead to acute kidney and liver failure. He recently came forth with his addiction to lean, inspired by Mozzy’s #KickDaCupChallange.
For those who don’t know, Fredo was also featured in Drake’s “Hold On, We’re Going Home” music video. This follows the sudden death of Lil Peep at the end of last year, who also passed away due to substance abuse. If anyone is struggling with drug or alcohol addiction, please reach out for help. This needs to stop.
